POSITION FILLED. THANKS TO ALL APPLICANTS.
Come and join our well established web development studio as the lead developer of our PHP based team.
We build interactive sites of all kinds, so every project can be very different to keep you and your mind active. You'll be involved with a number of projects at any one time ranging from international brands to charities and start-ups. We also run several internal projects which you'll have chance to provide input and development for - this is where we often experiment with new ideas first.
Ideally you'll have 4+ years commercial PHP experience, but also the knowledge of best practices when working as a team on projects. It will be your responsibility to take the lead on technical implementation decisions for projects.
Key Skills we're looking for are:
- PHP 5, OOP.
- Development methodologies & code control for iterative release processes.
- Strong problem solving and debugging skills.
- Excellent verbal and written communication skills for client interaction.
Your work will cover a variety of areas, including:
- Building new applications and sites in PHP from the ground up with the Drupal framework (and in the future Symfony 2).
- Extending existing Drupal projects which may have been developed outside of the company previously.
- Evaluating new technologies and techniques to improve the teams knowledge and skills.
As you may notice, we love Drupal! So previous experience of the technology and API is helpful but everybody in the team is on hand to provide help when needed. There's a chance to play with the latest technologies and contribute back to the Drupal open source community as part of your daily work.
The majority of your work will be carried out on-site in our office1 in Warrington, Cheshire, UK, but there may be occasionally some travel involved for client meetings in London and anywhere in-between. Therefore this position will only be suitable for UK residents who are already located in the North West of England or who are willing to relocate to the area.
Why Work For Ixis?
We've been in the Drupal business for over 8 years, it's all we do. We think it keeps our staff focused and highly skilled by avoiding the distraction of Wordpress, Magento or Joomla. We care about the open source software we use - and ensure we contribute our time and code back to the projects in our day to day job.
We run a fun, friendly, and relaxed office environment as well as beer in the evening opportunities outside of work. Our office hours are flexible to work around busy traffic periods.
Salary: Up to £40,000.
Hours: 8 hours a day to be taken between 9am and 6pm.
Apply: Submit a short cover letter, salary expectation and a copy of your CV via our online application form.
1 ability to play Pool is not a requirement for the job.
