I am looking for a high quality PHP Developer who has had some exposure to Javascript to assist with core development of a proprietary technology.

Our client is a well known financial data provider

We are seeking an experienced, motivated and resourceful PHP / WordPress developer with a blend of back-end and front-end skills. In this highly collaborative role, you will work with front end developers, designers and content developers to build efficient, beautiful and responsive media/news focused websites.

The environment is that of Facebook or Google, relaxed open with time to think and make the right decisions. The atmosphere is calm and relaxed with an open dress code. This is a role for techies, those who are motivated by the sharp end of technology and the possibility of making serious money doing something you are passionate about.

Day to day the PHP Developer will:

• Code new WordPress themes, page templates, and plugins from scratch and modify existing themes and plugins
• Build efficient, testable, and reusable PHP modules including dynamic content and personalization features
• Integrate wide range of WordPress plugins, API calls and third party apps and forms, such as Eloqua
• Manage back-end services and interchange of data between server and user, including server-side logic and database integration
• Ensure high performance and responsiveness to requests from front-end
• Provide front-end development of digital marketing communications, including full websites and micro-sites, landing pages, emails, and other initiatives
• Develop, test and troubleshoot across multiple browsers, platforms and devices, including tablets and smartphones, to support a consistent and positive customer experience
• Provide guidance on SEO best practices for site development
• Research and recommend new technologies and tools for effective integration across various platforms

Web Developers must have:

• Must have a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science or related field
• 3+ years of experience as a web developer
• Experience creating and integrating custom WordPress plugins, themes, working with WordPress hooks and filters
• Experience creating websites for a mobile-first strategy
• Strong knowledge of PHP web frameworks
• Strong knowledge of common PHP or web server exploits and their solutions
• Experience with limitations of PHP as a platform and its workarounds
• Knowledge of HTML5, CSS3, Sass, JavaScript, jQuery, and responsive frameworks (Foundation, Bootstrap)
• Ideally Knowledge of React JS
• Experience with online usability, accessibility, and web analytics
• Experience with development languages (Java or Python)
• Experience integrating or working with ad serving technologies (prebid, DFP)
• Experience with software versioning and revision control systems (Subversion or Git)

This is a role for someone who wants to learn PHP in a fast paced setting where development is the key. The atmosphere is relaxed and casual but with a work hard attitude. Friday pub lunch is normal. Training is a big part of what this firm offers as investing in PHP developers is key to my client’s business success.

My client is based in the City of London
