We’re looking for an experienced PHP developer to join our team. This is a fast-paced environment working on bespoke promotion campaigns developed for our clients. The websites you will work on will be used by hundreds of thousands of users each year for the largest tech companies in the world.
We develop the full stack in-house – that’s everything including front-end (VueJS), server-side (PHP 7.x), databases, caching technologies, and everything else in-between. The ideal candidate will have experience launching websites into production and be familiar with the full technology stack. That said, we don’t expect you to be an expert on everything. We’ll tailor the role and what you work on day-to-day based on your skillset and where you’d like to progress.
The essentials you should be familiar with include:
- PHP (inc. PHP 7.x)
- Modern PHP frameworks, and the PHP FIG
- Object oriented design principles
- CSS preprocessors (SASS, LESS)
- HTML/CSS frameworks (Bootstrap, Foundation)
- Unit testing
- Vagrant or Docker
Our development teams include experts in every aspect of software engineering, who you’ll be able to learn from and bounce ideas off.
We understand as a team that your learning is never finished, which is why we sponsor local developer meetups (PHP North East) and encourage everyone in the team to present new ideas and technology to the team during regular internal presentations.
We’re open to remote working too. Most of the technical team work in our Newcastle office, but we also have another office in London, and we have a few full-time remote developers.
Opia are a market-leading risk managed sales promotion agency. We work with blue-chip clients to develop, launch, and run sales promotions on the international stage.
Our in-house team of developers, located in Gateshead, work on a variety of applications delivered for some of the world’s leading brands including Microsoft, HP, Samsung, Exxon Mobil, and more.
Having been acquired by billion-dollar Village Roadshow Group in 2015, we’re continuing to expand, and need new developers to help keep up with the growing business.
