We are proud to be working with inspiring colleagues who are smart, fun, ambitious, and looking for the challenge to transform an industry and take it into the future.

Do you think this could be you? We are looking for an awesome Software Engineer with PHP background.

Who are we:

Our team is located in our Warsaw office in the city center (but in the current circumstances we’re working fully remotely from our homes). Despite this fact, we’re closely cooperating with HQ in Munich where our dedicated Product Manager is located. We’re currently growing the team and we’re looking for backend engineers that will help us build and expand our applications.

What we are doing:

The team is responsible for our lovely, content-rich landing pages and overall promotional integrations between all of our systems. We’re focusing on the Tech SEO side of our applications so that our customers can easily find us and have a great experience while using our beautiful websites. 

What you will do:

  • Work of the full software development life cycle: from the analysis, design up to implementing and deploying the final solution
  • Provide value to the business with the code you produce
  • Take full ownership of the software the team produces
  • Ensure maintainability of the solution as well as blazing fast performance
  • Ensure our websites are lovable by our customers

What we offer:

  • A truly shaping tech position with high degrees of responsibility and autonomy
  • An open-minded tech organization with a “best tool for the job” attitude. Freedom to choose your tools and technology gives plenty of room for learning and experimentation.
  • A continuous self-improvement environment. Access to e-learning portals, budget for conferences, and paid certifications are just some of the ways we help you be your best self.
  • A great atmosphere. Team events and hackathons are some of the ways we make our office a place you want to hang out.
  • Ability to define your job. We are always happy to help you take new responsibilities and help you grow into the role you want.
  • A brand-new top-of-the-line MacBook Pro with whichever accessories you fancy. Deck out your workstation with whichever editors, tools, and accessories you need to feel at home.
  • Internal mobility. If you want to learn something new or try a new team, we have a “team-rotation” program which allows you to switch to open positions in other teams.

What we expect from you:

  • Experience in PHP 7 development of large scale and highly available applications
  • Passion for shipping. CI/CD is a must. Putting code live every day is a given.
  • Decent knowledge of database
  • Good communication skills, very fluent English

What we appreciate:

  • Knowledge about the technical SEO side of the web
  • Architecture skills – both code and infrastructure. Acronyms like SOLID and DDD make you excited. People know you as that person who is always talking about “Decoupling”, “Onions” and “Hexagons”.
  • Experience with frontend stack - JS/CSS3/HTML5
  • Experience with Docker, AWS, CI/CD pipelines
  • Experience in building well-maintained and professional WordPress applications
