Hi Team!


We have a great long term career opportunity with our client in Minneapolis that I wanted to share and see if you might be  comfortable and interested. Hoping to hear from you.


Role: PHP Developer

Location: Richfield, MN

Duration: 1 year+

PHP Developer


Project Details:

Our platform is designed to scale quickly to bring on partners and affiliates.  White Label uses an Agile methodology, with development and testing occurring within two week iterations as part of a quarterly release process.  The technology stack is LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP).


Required Experience:   The candidate must be very comfortable developing in PHP.  We are writing backend code in PHP to talk to services, perform object loading and caching, and for background processing.  This is beyond mere loops and adding variables to web pages. The candidate should also have good knowledge of the object oriented approach to programming in PHP. Other dynamically typed languages, such as Python, Ruby, and Perl may help.


·         Excellent PHP knowledge, especially OOP experience

·         Experience with Javascript is strongly desired.

·         Experience integrating with external services via SOAP, AJAX, etc.

·         Prior experience working to improve performance in non-trivial applications.

·         Prior exposure to an agile environment is a plus.

·         Experience with MySQL is a plus.


Personality Attributes/Soft Skills: A good candidate for this position will have a solid programming background, has a passion for writing code, and is eager to learn more.   They should be comfortable giving and receiving constructive feedback within the team and working in an agile, fast-paced, evolving environment


·         Strong personality, able to take initiative to ask question and make constant improvements.

·         Ability to communicate effectively with remote team members via various modes (Skype, gTalk, email).

·         Ability and strong desire to identify, recommend, and implement ideas to improve code quality within the team.

·         Ability to receive and provide critical feedback to team members about code quality


Prerequisite: Applicants will be asked to complete a programming puzzle before they are considered for an in-person interview. The purpose of this puzzle is to gauge the candidate’s PHP competence across many different areas. It will also give a feel for the coding style of the candidate. Please note that this is not a test. The candidate is judged on the form and content of their solution, not simply on the correctness of the solution.
