jobs-php-developer-secret-source

Senior PHP Developer

The Senior PHP Developer will have worked with multiple web application frameworks and CMSs including (ideally):

(any) Laravel, Zend Framework, CakePHP, CodeIgnitor, Yii, Fusebox
(any) WordPress, Drupal, Joomla, Mediawiki

In short, we’re looking for someone who has had it with reinventing the wheel and insists on implementing DRY solutions based on proven code libraries, libraries that produce valid HTML5 and JavaScript.

The ideal candidate, rather than throwing darts with their eyes closed and calling that “debugging”, uniquely and unequivocally identifies the problem, often by using tail on the logs, and plans the tests to be used to confirm the source of the problem before writing any code intended to fix it. And in a perfect world, you will write the documentation for your namespaced classes first, followed by unit tests, and only then will you write the actual code.

In short, we’re looking for developers with experience in professional environments who understand the value of planning and proper research and the costs associated with failing to do either. Participation at any level, even Quality Assurance (beta testing), in open source projects is greatly valued.
