Senior PHP Developer
CommuterClub
Bucharest, Bucuresti, Romania

This is a unique opportunity to join one of Europe hottest FinTech companies (Sunday Times Tech Track, Everline Disruptor of the Year). We are looking for a Full Stack Engineer to join our Bucharest team. You will work with our Romania based Engineering Lead to build and grow the business and join our co-founder (Bulgarian) and MD (Romanian) in developing our presence on the ground.

We are a fun, entrepreneurial and passionate business that is looking to disrupt how people pay for their trip to work. We are growing quickly with over £40mn of tickets processed to date, thousands of happy customers and big pipeline of new product innovation. We recently raised £ from leading UK angels and investors such Peter Jackson (CEO Travelex), Andy Murray (World No 1 Tennis Player), Anthony Gutman (Co-Head Goldman IBD), Gavin Casey (CEO London Stock Exchange).

Our focus is technology first; we hate manual processes and will automate as much as possible building a robust back-end to support our simple and intuitive front-end system.

Your role:

As a Full Stack Developer, you will take on real ownership to grow our code base as well as improve our infrastructure stack as we develop a world class IT platform. You will be based in Bucharest, Romania but will have the option to travel to London and will use current communication and collaboration methods to stay in touch with the teams.

You will take responsibility for your own work streams and will have significant autonomy to develop a solution to challenging technical problems. You will pro-actively engage with the Engineering or Product team and will love working collaboratively.

Expect a challenging but supportive environment where you will learn every day and cover a broad range of projects every week. As you develop you will have the opportunity to mentor junior team members and provide support to the other members of the dev team.

What we are looking for:

We are looking for an independent, curious, industrious and diligent Developer to take our platform forward who at a minimum has experience with the following:

  • Minimum of 2-4 years’ experience with PHP (OOP) in a consumer facing, transactional, technology driven organisation;
  • You love working with LAMP / WAMP (Linux, PHP, MySQL, Apache) and are comfortable writing complex deployment ready code;
  • Familiarity with server management (AWS, Linux server configuration and networking concepts);
  • Experience of PHP micro-frameworks as well as templating engines;
  • Experience in transactional and eCommerce systems. We hand millions in payments daily and service thousands of customers. You need to know how to build scalable and robust code;
  • Experience in consuming APIs (AWS, Stripe, Sendgrid, Twillio and more) as well as developing RESTfull APIs;
  • Preferably university-level degree in Computer Science, Electronic Engineering or Mathematics;
  • Strong communication skills with working knowledge of English;
  • Comfortable working in hyper-growth environments.

Above all we want real drive and motivation to solve complex problems and create great code that will be rapidly tested and deployed.

About our stack:

We have to stay nimble while delivering mission-critical code. To do so we constantly prioritise keeping both our stack and our codebase lean.

We build simple, reliable systems on top of technologies we understand and trust. We're primarily built in PHP using MVC principles, and we rely on MySQL and Apache to keep things running.

Our server is cloud hosted using AWS and we operate a robust infrastructure structure environment to ensure minimal down time and high reliability for our transactional system.

The team is lean and we deploy many times a day, supported by a test suite we trust and a culture of code review. Our moto is fail fast, fail often and we are always incrementally improving our code and platform.

Our offer:

A unique experience to be part of a truly exciting, dynamic FinTech start-up in the UK and Romania. Things will move fast, and every day will be different but you will be a key part of building a fast growing and innovative organisation.

  • Form a core part of Engineering Team working with world class technology;
  • Competitive package with real ownership in the success of the company;
  • Room for you to do things your way and try new approaches.
