- Advise on further improving our software development systems, and helping to build out a roadmap for future framework framework.
- At least 5 years of experience working with PHP and the rest of the LAMP stack. If you’ve been using PHP long enough to remember the excitement of PHP 3 that’s a bonus ;)
- Can demonstrate the ability to write production quality code oriented around maintainability, security, and speed.
- Passionate about writing code and being in a position where you can spend most of your time getting to be a programmer (rather than meetings, emails, TPS reports, etc).

- Experienced at managing multiple projects and deadlines. We are an agency so we have multiple active clients at any given time.

- Must have fast and dependable internet connection, an appropriate work from home environment, and supply own computer and other technology.
- Experience with the Stripe API, especially Stripe Billing. We write a lot of complex billing code.
- You are open to this position growing to full-time work eventually.
Benefits of working for us:
- Fully remote work with flexible work schedule.
- Guaranteed minimum of hours.
- We care deeply about the work that we create for clients, the importance of good code, and wish to work with someone that has a similar mindset.
You should not apply if:
- You don’t have a strong PHP MVC background or experience with writing efficient and secure code. This is an essential requirement.
- You are only looking for temporary work.
