Backend developer | PHP| Amsterdam

Do you want to work in an environment with in-house developed products where you are not bound by frameworks? 

What is it that they do?

As mentioned, they have their own developed products. The key core of these products revolves around e-mail marketing. With their products, they are the market leader in the Netherlands.
Of course, this is not just any piece of software. After many years of development since 2000, the SaaS has been developed to the point where all data has been processed for a perfectly personalized user experience. So they have three different products based on marketing software and 2 email products. Now that they are a major player in the Netherlands, they are going to explore and conquer the international market as well. Being proud of their quality, they have also released several open source libraries on GitHub.

Not to be judged on input, but rather on output? This is possible in a nice hybrid working environment where you have to be present at least twice a week at their beautiful office next to Amsterdam central station. In an open work culture where feedback is encouraged, they want you to excel in order to get the best out of yourself! Besides the cool work they do, there is an original Amsterdam culture where there is always something to do with your colleagues in a close atmosphere. Going to the pool bar on Tuesday or to a brown pub on Thursday? Nice!

What will you be doing?

You will be primarily engaged in improving the three core products. But as there are so many projects to get involved with at the moment, extra hands are more than welcome! The backend which is written in PHP is used for the layer between the frontend and storage platforms in the backend, server side scripting and background tasks.

So because there are so many projects to take on, your work is nice and diverse. From improving the existing code to developing new applications. You will be working with plain PHP. The code is clear, logically structured and, where necessary, extensively documented. Because the PHP code is part of a bigger technology stack, there are clear API's to link the systems together. PHP programmers work together with C++ developers to fix memory management. This was the reason the open source PHP-CPP library was developed.

You will be working in multidisciplinary teams to realize the company goals together. This is also to challenge you to look beyond what you already know and are able to do!

When will you be qualified?

Actually, it is very simple. You enjoy challenging yourself and have experience with PHP.

What we expect from you as a minimum:

  • 3 years of experience with the latest versions of PHP
  • JavaScript basics
  • MySQL
  • CSS and HTML
  • English speaking and writing
  • Living in the Netherlands

This will give you a big head start:

  • Linux experience
  • C++ experience
  • Kubernetes and/or Docker
  • Functional component design
  • M

What do you get in retun?

In addition to a great employer who provides you with every convenience, you will get the following in return:

  • Salary up to €5k
  • Flexibility to plan your own working hours
  • Your own choice of laptop and phone
  • Desk and chair to choose from
  • 8% holiday pay
  • Virtual share rights
  • Travel allowance
