Role Responsibilities

PHP Developer working in a varied position supporting business operations environment and full stack cloud applications development.

We are a technology provider supplying internal support services (think business operations) and cloud based applications to clients. We utilise PHP, SQL, databases including Oracle, MS SQL and MySql. We use Linux environments to deploy our PHP solutions. We develop cloud applications based on web technologies using PHP, HTML, jQuery, MySQL) deployed on Linux and Amazon AWS solutions.

When we say PHP developer, we mean someone capable of developing tactical PHP scripts for process automation, systems interfaces and data manipulation tasks through to full stack cloud application development using web based tools. Someone that can take a requirement to interface a billing platform to an Oracle database and automate the process using PHP one day, to developing a new system maintenance screen in a cloud application the next.

Ideally you will be comfortable speaking with end users to identify requirements and support deployed solutions. However, we recognise some developers may relish end user contact while others may want to avoid as much as possible. We recognise this and have a varied team of developers catering equally to both preferences.
