Back End Developer

If you keep finding yourself in endless arguments about whether arrays start at 0 or 1 and you sometimes see nightmares about that infinite loop you think you created and pushed to production, then you are probably in the right place. We can help you get through those tough times, united, as a family. Then we'll go change the world.

Although experience and familiarity with our tech stack is a nice touch on your resume, we know that not everybody has it. But we believe that everybody can learn and figure out pretty much everything so we're looking for that kind of personality traits.

We have various projects and a variety in project complexity. We'll consider applications from all experience levels.

We only work with php based frameworks and CMS's and we love Drupal. We follow agile methodologies for project management and we obviously use git. Code quality is something that we always want to be proud of.

Daily agency life for the back end developer is usually to work on our current projects based on the current sprint. Sometimes we fix stuff for websites we maintain or update them etc. We have our own hosting company (and infrastructure obviously). We have websites that are 5+ years old that feel and perform like new, all due to our ongoing efforts to keep the code clean, updated and smooth. Last but not least we all have lots of coffee and lame jokes from mr galatis.
