Job Description

We're searching for one more software developer to add to our growing team of LAMP geeks. We build and maintain custom websites/applications written in PHP, primarily using the Symfony and Laravel frameworks.

About the Job

We touch a lot of different technologies and need developers who know them or are eager to learn. As a software developer at Zing, you'll be tasked with building highly customized business applications and APIs using modern frameworks, and you'll be expected to dive deep into existing codebases to expand functionality or troubleshoot problems.

In this position you will:

  • Build and maintain PHP applications using Symfony, Laravel, Vue.js, and MySQL
  • Write database queries in SQL and access the database using an ORM such as Doctrine or Eloquent
  • Build front-end interfaces for administrative sites, reports, and customer-facing marketing pages


  • 2+ years PHP programming experience (including OO)
  • 2+ years database experience with MySQL or MariaDB
  • Strong CSS, HTML, and Javascript skills
  • Familiarity and comfort developing on and for Linux environments

Bonus points if you're also familiar with one or more of:

  • Symfony
  • Laravel
  • Vue.js
  • React
  • Implementing Photoshop or XD designs
  • Docker
  • Bash
  • Yarn, npm, webpack, and/or encore
  • PHPUnit or Codeception

We're looking for candidates local to Denver / Boulder / Fort Collins. Our offices in Boulder county are open, and we are also allowing remote work for Colorado residents.

The base salary range for this position is $70k - $100k DOE. Final compensation will be determined by various factors such as a candidate's relevant work experience, skills, and certifications. More experienced candidates may receive a higher offer.

We believe in maintaining a healthy work-life balance. We don't have a "work hard, play hard" philosophy; we have a "schedule sanely, work efficiently, and enjoy your family and hobbies" philosophy.

What else?

Here's the nitty-gritty on how things work at Zing:

  • Choose your own Linux distro, IDE, and support software-- we want you to be effective as you're coding, not boxed into some corporate IT setup.
  • We'll throw 10% on top of your salary for a SEP-IRA retirement package... no match required. Yes, 10%.
  • How about we pay 100% of your premiums on one of the best health plans around?
  • Start things off right with a furniture budget for your office space at Zing so you can deck it out as you please.

Please, please, please: If you're a recruiter, a contract agency, or a developer looking for some freelance business, we wish you the best of luck but don't contact us-- it will only waste our time and yours.
