Billy Is Hiring! Middleweight PHP Developer Needed

| Comments

As most of you know, since June 2nd I’ve taken the position of MVAS IT Manager at Billy Mobile.

Well, the family is growing, and I need a pair of hands on my side.

Right now we are using some Symfony components (HttpFoundation, DependencyInjection, Configuration, Router, EventDispatcher, Console and Templating) and we are creating a lot of libraries for our own use which we control with Composer / Satis. We also are going to possibly include node.js in some of our apps.

Your job will be connecting our apps with 3rd party APIs, creating new libraries that connect us to different services, thinking of how to improve our metrics and having fun while doing so. We have three different areas were you can make impact (mobile web apps, a very custom adserver and a REST-ish API for native mobile apps).

We are looking for:

  • A fun person to be around

  • All-around nice person

  • Middleweight PHP developer. You have some experience, but want to improve and / or take on new challenges. Or maybe you have a ton of experience, and you like this job posting!

  • Comfortable with MySQL (queries, indexes, joins…)

  • Comfortable with the Mediator pattern and design patterns in general

  • Comfortable with git and composer

  • Understands Dependency Injection

  • Can document code, or writes code so beautiful it’s auto-commented (if this is you please teach me).

  • Maybe has a bit (or a lot) of experience with testing.

  • Maybe has experience with key-value stores (Redis, Memcached or other), and NoSQL solutions (MongoDB, CouchDB, ElasticSearch or other…)

  • Strong english skills required - this a must, as we are an international company that need to communicate clearly in English with both coworkers and partners.

We are offering:

  • Good salary and company perks

  • An environment were prototyping, putting your ideas out there and trying new stuff is encouraged

  • Lots of growth opportunities

  • The chance to impact a working business model

  • Working with yours truly which is AWESOME

  • Free coffee and soft drinks

  • Great coworkers
