Experienced PHP / MySQL developer

I'm working with a growing team in central Manchester, who need an experienced back end OO PHP / MySQL specialist to help with their PaaS product.

The Business:

The business is built upon a large, bespoke software platform written using OOPHP, contained by a MySQL database on AWS. This needs to be updated, maintained and ideally transformed into microservice architecture with a plan to replace the old framework with an MVC framework or even JavaScript in the near future.

Currently working from a centrally located Manchester office, the team are a good bunch of people with some excellent upcoming projects in the pipeline and good opportunities to establish yourself as a keystone in the team.


You will need a good two to three years commercial experience working with OO PHP and MySQL databases as a minimum. Whilst an interest in MVC frameworks or even contemporary JavaScript libraries would also be beneficial but not essential experience.

Good communication skills and a "can do" attitude / willingness to apply yourself to difficult tasks is essential.


  • Object Orientated Programming
  • PHP 5/7
  • MySQL databases
  • SQL
  • HTML / CSS / jQuery
  • LAMP stack development

  • AWS
  • PHP MVC framework i.e. Laravel / Symfony or similar
  • Computer Science Degree or similar

  • Unit testing experience

If this sounds like you and you are interested in this role, then please apply through this advert, or send across your CV to me directly - and I will get back to you asap.
