NYC PHP Message Board › Shutterstock is looking for a PHP Engineer (NYC)
|A former member||
Shutterstock is one of the largest stock photography companies in the world. We help creative people around the world bring their projects to life with millions of photos, illustrations, and multimedia.
We know that the developer plays a critical role in making awesome products. The best products come from developers who are passionate and proud. Shutterstock is a place where the passionate and proud can exceed their own expectations. We do this by providing a great work environment, oriented around small teams who can create their own vision, influence their own destiny, and drive the creation of products that impress. We consider obscurity an absurdity, everyone is expected to be influential and make a difference.
Work for Shutterstock and learn about multi-currency ecommerce, internationalization, localization, scalability, SOA, and the value of behavioral data to improve product offerings.
We are looking for a senior PHP developer who wants to solve problems and create solutions that make a difference. Familiarity with object oriented development and design patterns like MVC and Dependency Injection are essential skills. Understanding of the concepts of a Service Oriented Architecture is desired. We value community involvement and encourage open sourcing code. The ideal candidate will have code available on github and/or contributed to an open source project.
The frameworks we use are Slim and our own open sourced, custom framework called Basecoat. You should be able to discuss the pluses and minuses of macro vs. micro vs. custom frameworks, and played with a few of them. Experience with programming languages other than PHP is a big bonus. We are technology agnostic, you should know when PHP is not the right tool for the job.
