About the Role

We have an exciting opportunity for a talented Senior Full Stack PHP Developer to join our London based scrum team. The Technology team is primarily offshore but are looking to build out a London scrum team to be closer to our internal customers and for the diversity that it brings.

Over the past year we have been upgrading our Tech stack to move to the latest frameworks and tools (symfony, vue.js, graphql, docker, kubernetes) including migration to Google Cloud Platform.

What you get in return!

As well as a competitive salary and annual bonus, we offer you:

What makes us different?

Want some insight into how we work as a team? Here are our culture behaviours that are at the core of everything we do:

Be relentless about progress

To be the best at what we do, we push things forward with tenacity. 

There will always be blockers, we always find ways around them. 

Enjoy the journey

We celebrate successes and give kudos to our colleagues for a job well done, no matter how small.

Share and seek input

Our most valuable asset is our people. We embrace challenge and different opinions and are more interested in learning than being right. 

Risk failure to achieve success 

We iterate often, fail quickly, learn and go again. But this doesn't mean we sacrifice the quality of our work. We aim for excellence in everything we do but we also acknowledge that sometimes we need to say: for now, it is good enough. 

Own it and get it done

We don't point blame or find excuses. We are accountable and take responsibility for our mistakes and when we don't deliver. We totally own our failures and learn from them.
