As a seasoned Senior PHP Engineer, 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. 
You have more than five (5) years of experience battling in high availability applications and big complex projects. With that, you will be part of one of our Backend teams in Barcelona (7 Engineers + 1 PO).

  • Experience with Microservices. You understand both the good and bad points of working with Microservices and how to work properly with them. 
  • Experience working with scalable architectures and systems. 
  • Experience working in high availability applications. 
  • Good testing culture. No matter if you make the tests before the code or vice versa, your tests are ALWAYS part of the last PR. 
  • Docker is your friend. You have experience working with Docker and Docker Compose. 
  • Experience with CI services like Travis or CircleCI 
  • Git workflow. Good deployment practices (CI is a plus). 
  • Agile development skills.
