You are a (Senior) PHP developer looking to join a well-established, growing business that helps their customers fix their most complex business challenges with beautifully engineered solutions.
As a PHP engineer you bring experience from 1 or several product organizations, ideally SaaS companies. You will apply and extend your experience in backend (or fullstack) development with PHP, will work collaboratively in cross-functional product teams and will help us to create delightful products with very good user experience that people love.
We are a team of 18 Engineers (on our way to 30 by the end of the year).
- PHP 7, REST or GraphQL, MySQL, AWS, Docker, Terraform, GitLab
- Remote First, collaborative customer-focused team that deploy code every day
- We are looking for Mid-Level and Senior-Level Engineers
- Depending on your experience level, as well as the location (Germany, Portugal, Spain) the salary range is between: €50-65k / 65k-85k p.a.
Most of our team is based in Berlin but this role is a fully remote position based in Germany or Spain and Portugal (through our employer of record).
If you enjoy going to an office then we would love to help you relocate to Berlin, just ask our recruiting team about it when you speak to them.
We love to collaborate, you will find us regularly sharing tips and tricks during our brown bag lunches, organizing hackathons and pair coding to solve our most complex problems.
We follow Agile development and have synchronous and asynchronous communication. If you would like to meet some of our team check us out here https://www.fotograf.de/team/
You will join a product first organization that is currently moving from 2 to 4 product squads. The platform is mainly developed in PHP with the frameworks CakePHP & Laravel. The teams are currently working on moving the solution into a service-based architecture using TypeScript, NodeJS, and other technologies (you may help them choose).
The GotPhoto SaaS platform helps school photographers streamline their workflow and ensure that they can easily manage large photoshoots and print amazing products their customers want. GotPhoto is a profitable startup that has been around since 2010 their culture is one of a positive business model, with the mindset “we create winners”. Photographers, parents, schools, and labs are better off when using their software.
You will work on:
Designing, coding, deploying, and monitoring usage of features our clients love (current client NPS is 68)
Ensuring we all write great code and learn together; we do peer code reviews, lots of pair coding, hackathons and internal tech talks as well as support your growth with a learning and conference budget
Highly versatile system in order to support complex photographer workflows, taking pictures of thousands of school kids is a complex challenge
Customer-first culture (yes even as a Dev, we hope you care about our customers too)
Large Scale Systems Handling >1 million orders per year with highly sensitive data and information
The only system on the market with support for all major sales methods of photographers (prepay, proofing, online, offline)
We take a pragmatic approach to building products and systems that work for our customers. Our core application is a modular CakePHP monolith - not as monolithic as you may have seen before. As we have scaled in terms of features and functionality we have built microservices in PHP, NodeJS, Python, and React.
We use AWS-Cloud using MySQL, Docker, SQS, SNS, SES, PHPUnit, NewRelic, Graylog. QA has a Cypress Stack for end-to-end testing. In the Platform team, we make use of Amazon Lamdba for image processing to keep the scale very flexible. Payments are handled and abstracted by the finance team in their own distributed service.
Since our business has complex use cases, we keep the cognitive load for our Devs as low as possible so they focus on solving problems rather than configuring tech.
We use Dockerized Environments to be able to run any part of the system on any system
We use AWS to scale our architecture to our customers due to seasonality which made us build the system in a way that it can scale up and down
We have a scalable image processing system based on serverless AWS Lambda
We use GitLab for our CICD Pipelines We value that any developer is enabled to do deployments into the live system with a click of a button
