Web Back End/ Application Developer


This position is NOT currently open

This individual will build and maintain programming functionality for web-based commerce, database, administrative and other similar modules for our client websites. Being able to assist in maintaining the systems those applications run on is a plus. Our center of excellence is development of Web applications in Linux/Apache/ MySQL/PHP, so depth and breadth of practical and operational experience in this environment is critical.

He or she will need to be proficient building and maintaining elegant and robust custom applications in a PHP environment…from scratch or finding ways to re-purpose existing code. Experience with Concrete5, Joomla!, Drupal and/or and WordPress will help them hit the ground running. Magento is our preferred e-commerce engine, so experience with it is a position requirement. Laravel is our preferred platform for the most robust applications.

We are passionately customer service driven and require our team members to naturally possess that same attitude. The ideal candidate will be a team player who can work well with rapidly evolving client goals, must be able to function without constant guidance and ask questions when something doesn’t make sense. He or she understands they don’t “write code,” they solve business problems. An absolute requirement is a skill set that includes understanding of best practices for usability and intuitive navigation, that come not from just reading about it, but also being a Web consumer themself. We need our developers to relate and interact well with customers and have patience even with those who have a complete lack of comprehension of how this stuff works.
