Do you think this could be you? We are looking for an awesome Tech Lead PHP (m/f/d) with a strong PHP background.

Your responsibilities will be:

• Manage a cross-functional team building services written in PHP
• Design, build and maintain scalable and highly available services
• Ensure your services are well tested, architected, meet our coding standards and have proper logging, monitoring, and alerting
• Set up processes and methodologies optimized for shipping code
• Mentor developers from various disciplines and ensuring their constant professional growth
• Work closely with product owners and business stakeholders to design technical solutions to fit product needs

You come with:

• Several years of experience in PHP 7 development of large scale and highly available applications
• 2+ years of experience in a team lead role. Managing people is just as exciting as managing software

• Passion for shipping. CI/CD is a must. Putting code live every day is a given
• Experience with RabbitMQ, Docker, Kubernetes, AWS, CI/CD pipelines (GitLab, Jenkins)

• Result driven: you create momentum based on your ultimate goal of getting things done

We offer:

• An open-minded tech organization with a “best tool for the job” attitude. Freedom to choose your tools and technology gives plenty of room for learning and experimentation
• A continuous self-improvement environment. Access to e-learning portals, budget for conferences, and paid certifications are just some of the ways we help you be your best self
• A great atmosphere. Team events and hackathons are some of the ways we make our office a place you want to hang out
• Ability to define your job. We are always happy to help you take new responsibilities and help you grow into the role you want
• A brand-new top-of-the-line MacBook Pro with whichever accessories you fancy. Deck out your workstation with whichever editors, tools, and accessories you need to feel at home
• Internal mobility. If you want to learn something new or try a new team, we have a “team-rotation” program that allows you to switch to open positions in other teams
