Full-Time Back End Developer (PHP)

Supercool – Posted by SupercoolKP United Kingdom

Job Description

Help us create accessible, performant websites for leading arts and cultural organisations

Role: Back End Developer (PHP)

Salary: £40-50k – depending on experience
Location: Fully-remote team, UK-based
Type: Permanent, full-time, flexible hours
Application deadline: Sunday 22 May 2022


Our remote team is dotted all over the UK, and we’re looking for a PHP Developer to join our climate positive workforce 🌳

On top of technical chops, we’re looking for the right person – an intelligent self-starter who enjoys a challenge, takes pride in their work, and is always keen to improve.

Is this you?

You’re a problem-solver and a doer who’s most at home when elbow-deep in code, but can communicate clearly with less technical folks. Whether you call yourself a developer, coder, or engineer, you care about writing maintainable, scalable, well-documented code, and you build for accessibility and performance.

A good communicator over Slack and video chat, working from home will suit you nicely. And you have a decent internet connection.

Day-to-day, you’re comfortable moving between slower-paced long-term jobs and fast-paced fixes. You can manage your own time and to-do list – but enjoy being an active part of a team focused on building the best possible products.

Job description

As well as helping to maintain our existing websites, you’ll be part of speccing new projects and features – and writing PHP for back end applications, custom Craft CMS plugins, and API integrations.

Additionally, you’ll:
• Integrate Twig/Craft templates
• Integrate with third-party APIs
• Configure staging and production environments, and deploy to them
• Diagnose and squish bugs
• Write clear technical documentation
• Contribute, and add to, our Open Source projects – especially Craft CMS plugins

• Play a role in driving our tech architecture set-up/stack
• Take part in code reviews
• Keep up-to-date with relevant technologies, and approaches to work

(This is a back end role, but it’d be great if you have some understanding of HTML, CSS, JavaScript.)

Our stack: PHP, Twig, Craft CMS, Valet, NGINX, Yii, REST/SOAP APIs, VPS hosting, AWS, Git

About Supercool

Hello! We’re a friendly team of problem-solvers, based all over the UK. We create websites that make life easier for arts, heritage, and cultural organisations – and their audiences.

Accessibility-focused – A belief that art and culture is for everyone runs through all that we do, so we have a strong focus on accessibility.

A 100% remote team
 – We all work from home, so are heavy users of Slack and video chat day-to-day, and meet in person once or twice a year (lockdowns permitting). We can provide financial support to help you set up a home office if you need it, as well as providing a laptop or any other equipment you need.

We care about your work/life balance – Standard work days are Monday-Friday, 8am-4pm. But we operate a flexible working policy with flexible start times (between 8am-10am), so you can start and finish later if that suits you. Though we try and stick to these hours, sometimes you’ll be needed at other times. If you’re asked to work outside of your normal hours, you’ll get Time Off In Lieu. (This should be a given, but isn’t always!)

Learning = good! – We support and encourage openness to learn, and individuals’ professional development – making sure there’s time for R&D as part of the team, as well as self-directed learning. If you’re interested in doing a course or would like to attend a conference; holler. We’re excited by new developments in tech, and everyone’s ideas and input help to shape the company and how we work.

Meet the team 👋 – Passionate, knowledgeable, and experienced, we’re a mix of developers, designers, digital strategists, and data geeks. Meet the folks you’ll be working with over on the About page of our website.

Salary and benefits

• £40-50k depending on experience
• Fully-remote working
• Flexible hours
• 35 days holiday a year, plus …
• Additional holiday for long service after 2 years
• Professional development opportunities to learn, and attend/speak at conferences
• Work with clients in the charitable sector
• Be part of a Climate Positive Workforce – we offset your carbon footprint at work and at home
• A welcoming working environment – read more about Supercool’s commitment to inclusivity
