Senior PHP Developer

  • Leeds

  • £35,000 to £40,000 DOE

Our client is a team of talented, data-driven, UX and creative commerce technologists based in Leeds. They help brands and retailers sell more effectively by taking a human-centred approach to commerce.

We’re searching for an experienced PHP Developer to join their friendly, committed & client-focused team.

This is primarily a back-end role, but some front-end skills would come in handy. Exposure to JavaScript, jQuery, Bootstrap/Foundation, RWD, SASS/LESS, would be useful. You would, however, be working alongside front-end developers.

Working with multiple platforms and continually testing and evolving processes in order to best meet the needs of clients and their customers. The successful candidate will become part of an experienced and tight-knit team. Our client recognises success and there is plenty of potential for the right person to grow with this role.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Backend development of e-commerce and content websites
  • Working with the development team to estimate and deliver work
  • Contributing to the ongoing improvement of working practices, systems and processes
  • QA testing of delivered work

The Ideal Person:


  • PHP development (3+ years)
  • Linux Command Line experience
  • Good working knowledge of Git
  • Strong interpersonal skills – able to talk with authority with other team members and clients
  • A good communicator, able to articulate the approach you’ve taken in your work
  • Confident, friendly and mature; you’re a true team player.


  • Enterprise-level e-commerce platforms
  • Exposure to automated deployment tools
  • Experience delivering projects in an agile environment (especially SCRUM)
  • Front-end development

Ideally, you’ll have experience within ecommerce - either agency or client-side. If you haven’t but can demonstrate how you’ve practiced human-centred thinking in your work we’d really like to speak to you.

Please ensure you also provide a working link to your portfolio / GitHub with your application as this is essential when reviewing all applicants for this role.
