Description: Uploaded by Talent Point Ltd -
Are you a Senior PHP Developer who is looking for an opportunity to cross train into Node.js and TypeScript?
Would you like to work on a globally recognised platform that is used by hundreds of thousands of users daily?
How about work in a team that is truly committed to developing your skill set, while providing you with autonomy over your workload?
Then why don't you consider joining our customer?
Our customers are a B2C company that offers both a web and mobile application used by 80 million people around the world to help assist them with learning.
With over 20,000 events per minute, their platform generates a huge amount of data, all of which is captured to help provide meaningful insight into their users.
This Senior PHP Developer role sits within their back end team, who are focused on building out new services and APIs that helps to integrate the customer-facing product with their data services. They have a complex API driven architecture, so to thrive in this role you will need to be able to build multiple complex APIs.
While their current services are built in PHP/Symfony, they have begun the journey of migrating to TypeScript/Node.js. Whenever they build a new service or have to significantly refactor an existing one, they are moving it to TypeScript/Node.js if possible, so you will be given the opportunity to work with this tech - but don't worry they're not looking for you to have done anything commercial before.
You will get the opportunity to work on their exciting upcoming projects including helping them expand into China, introducing voice recognition, NLP and AI, as well as working with their Data Science/Engineering team to make our APIs smarter.
As a senior within the team, you will have quite a lot of autonomy over your workload - expect to really take ownership of the features you work on, right from the planning stage. Their tech lead will help you understand how your features fit into the wider architecture, but you'll be the one responsible for the design, build, and testing of that feature.
Everything is hosted in AWS - they've already started to make use of serverless (AWS Lambda) in their Data team - the back end team are hoping to follow suit in the near future. You'll need to have an interest in working database side too, as you will be creating data models, building schemas, performing migrations and creating new databases.
If this sounds like what you are looking for then please apply now! Don't worry if you don't have a CV prepared all I need is your contact details and an indication of a good time to give you a call.
