We are looking for the best and brightest minds in backend development. Ideally with PHP experience, but we welcome polyglot engineers. Become part of an agile team of highly skilled and motivated individuals!

Position title: Senior Software Engineer – Senior PHP / Polyglot Engineer

As a seasoned software engineer, you know how to solve problems. You enjoy taking on difficult challenges where the limitations are not always necessary technical. You know when to stop and do things the right way and when getting things done.

At the same time, you know how to surf around different teams and priorities but also focus on the task at hand, and enjoy the fact of being part of a quick operations group, working in startup style but in a mature international company. You love changing the rules and driving the game because hey, that's the only way to succeed.

You code in several languages although you have one or two in your main expertise area (ideally PHP and other languages); however, you can travel around different sets of stacks, and if you don't know it, you can quickly learn about it.

The point is that you know several technologies and know which one to use for the right thing. You know how to scale up applications and how to deliver a quality product to clients. But most importantly, you do it because you love it. You enjoy building software that works and solves problems and even better if you do it with a great team working together to learn from them and teach them alike.

With more than six years coding and battling in high availability websites and big complex projects, and more than three years managing or coordinating small teams as Technical Lead or similar, you feel confident leading teams to success by teaching with example and mentoring best practices, all with a reduced ego and learning attitude.

Job Requirements: 

    • Passion about programming and technology and curiosity about what is new and which tools can solve problems better.
    • Very strong POO and frameworks (functional languages are a plus).
    • PHP knowledge or the will and skills to learn it quickly.
    • Do-it attitude. Never blinded by the process or the language, understanding that what matters is to solve the problem.
    • TDD / BDD.
    • MySQL + expertise with several NoSQL solutions (i.e. you know which toolset is the right one for the problem at hand) such as Redis.
    • Git workflow. Good deployment practices (CI is a plus).
    • Agile development skills.
    • Attention to good coding practices and clean code.
    • Good communicator in English.
    • Nonconformist, willing to change the world!

Nice to have

    • Experience in Ecommerce and transactional platforms.
    • Experience working with process / messaging based apps (Resque, sidekiq, rabbitMQ, etc).
    • Experience designing scalable architectures and systems.
    • Elasticsearch
    • Frontend (HMTL5, CSS3, Angular, React...).
    • Experience developing complex APIs.
    • Cucumber (Behat).
    • Nginx
    • Varnish 

Why You’ll Love Working with us:

  • We are a technology company and we invest in technology!
  • We lead our sector of activity and we are launching a new platform “from scratch”. We are facing very challenging new projects!
  • Highly skilled Engineering team so you can learn from your colleagues: knowledge sharing is strongly encouraged and lived.
  • Agile/ Scrum way of working and philosophy.
  • You will be part of a multi-cultural team, working with different countries and time zones.
  • We have a fun friendly international work environment.
  • Flexible working hours and availability of work from home.

We Offer Great Benefits Including:

  • Open space office in Barcelona with awesome views.

  • Free fruit, coffee and tea.

We offer a competitive salary package and a flexible salary plan including:

  • Health Insurance Program.
