As a Backend Web Developer, you will have an opportunity to influence the new backend technologies used by Macoocoo.

The ideal candidate will have experience building restful services to be consumed by webpages and hybrid mobile apps and have experience developing websites on a PHP-based framework.

  • Write high-quality performance code, and taking pride in all that you do

  • Develop, enhance, and debut RESTful APIs

  • Envision, spec, implement, test, document, and maintain software components

  • Find the perfect balance between high-quality code and getting a product shipped.

  • Help the team pay off technical debt, migrating separate chunks of legacy to a more scalable SOA approach.

Experience and knowledge:

  • You have at least 2 years’ experience in software engineering outside of your education.

  • Expert level knowledge in PHP MVC frameworks

  • Proven passion for everything you build to be clear and maintainable, in design and implementation.

  • Intuition for and experience in designing a highly fault-tolerant architecture of loosely-coupled services.
