  • Coding in PHP with Symfony and deploying to Amazon Web Services
  • Working either remotely or in our office in Newburyport, MA

Our team is currently building a service that monitors changes in book data across selected retail sites. When we detect a problem with one of our clients’ titles, we alert them and help them proactively address it.

  • Work with and occasionally contribute to open source software packages that we use in our projects
  • Build automated functional and unit tests
  • Participate in agile planning sessions using Jira and related tools
  • Document useful practices and tools to share with the team

Your qualifications:

  • Bachelor’s degree or equivalent work experience
  • 4+ years of experience with modern enterprise PHP code and automated testing
  • Experience with the Symfony framework (version 4+)
  • Experience with database development and optimization (we use PostgreSQL and MongoDB)
  • Experience with PHP 7.3+, JavaScript, HTML, PHPUnit, Composer, Node.js, Webpack, and Linux
  • Experience with Scrum or other agile processes, and with Jira or similar tools
  • Excellent communication skills

This position is either remote from anywhere in the continental United States with occasional travel required, or based out of our office in Newburyport, MA, depending on your preference.

Compensation will be commensurate with experience.
