PHP Developer Vacancy

PHP Developer vacancy - Nimbus Hosting

We’re looking for a PHP developer

Things are getting busy here at Nimbus Hosting, and we’re looking for a talented PHP developer to join our team. It’s a brilliant opportunity to be part of a growing business with a great reputation, working on our game-changing platform and joining a handpicked group of friendly, down-to-earth tech bods who know how to have fun. 

So, who are we? Well, we’re a leading hosting company specializing in looking after creative agencies, digital agencies and freelancers who build PHP and WordPress websites. To help them to manage their hosting, we’ve invented a unique platform called STORM, which takes existing hosting technologies and makes them super easy and intuitive to use.

We built STORM using PHP and Laravel, through the agile development approach. It’s been up and running for around two and a half years, with thousands of users, and we give it weekly or fortnightly updates based on their feedback and our new developments. The idea, with everything we do, is to make it easier for our clients to do their creative thing.

So what do we need? We’re looking for a new PHP developer to join our development team, reporting directly to STORM’s lead developer. You’d be working in a non-client-facing role, alongside 3 other developers, all based entirely on this project. Together, you’ll have a strong influence on features and the future direction of STORM.

You’ll be based in our Hertfordshire HQ, which we’ve recently revamped to include a great new breakout space with a spacious kitchen, quiet areas and not-so-quiet areas where we play pool, darts and table tennis. There’s free beer on Fridays and we like to head out as a team pretty regularly, getting up to stuff like Crystal Maze and Gokarting. 

If all that sounds right up your street, here’s a closer look at the skills you’ll need and the benefits we offer…

  • CMS experience (WordPress, Magento, Drupal, etc)
