Are we looking for you?

Spork is looking for a talented and experienced full-stack PHP developer to help our growing team. They will be implementing and customising web sites, web apps, and mobile apps on top of PHP systems, including (but not limited to) Craft CMS.

We’re looking for someone who seriously knows their onions, but is super keen to learn new technologies. You’ll be opinionated, bring ideas to the table, and always be looking for ways in which we can build better, smarter and more efficiently. You’ll be technically articulate, and happy explaining concepts to Account Managers internally at Spork but also confident enough to talk direct with clients. You’ll be working with a talented and enthusiastic team of designers and developers, on both new and existing projects.

You will have 4 or more years commercial experience in the following:

  • Bespoke PHP development, using frameworks such as Yii & Lavarel
  • Writing customisations and plugins to Craft CMS
  • Front-end templating using HTML,CSS, JS & Twig
  • Custom API design, implementation and maintenance.
  • Experience in GIT pipelines, and deployment to cloud based architecture, such as AWS

We also use the following stack at Spork, so any of these would be a massive bonus:

  • Docker
  • AWS
  • React and React Native
  • Python and Django
  • Node.js
  • Java (Spring & Hibernate)

Your day to day responsibilities:

  • Completion of support and new tasks across all projects
  • Assistance in costing tasks, projects, and phases of work
  • Assist with pull requests and code reviews across the company

Benefits

We offer:

Holiday:
25 days + bank holidays + all other days between 24th December and 1st January inclusive.

Benefits:
Company share structure, bonus / dividend scheme, training budget, cycle to work scheme.

Flexible working:
We want to see you in the office some days a week, but we understand that work and life needs to be balanced: your plans may vary from week to week. As long as we know about your scheduling, and it doesn’t affect client meetings, we will let you decide what’s best for you and the firm. We aim to be reasonable and choose to invest in our people, and so we don’t have meetings on a Friday. If you’ve pulled in the hours, down tools early!

Plexal Membership:
A job at Spork comes with all the benefits of a membership at Plexal: a diverse startup community with extensive member benefits.
