PHP DEVELOPER – BACKEND, LARAVEL

Experience : Senior or Intermediate

THE SIMPLYPHP LIFESTYLE

We look at our development team almost like a hockey team. We try to have the best players possible within our means, and we’re always on the lookout for new players that can contribute to our success. We also make sure that the existing team that has taken us to where we are today is well taken care of. Are you ready? Read on!

Our office is a home away from home. Our location is easily accessible, being right next to the Peel Metro station. Work hours are flexible because we trust our employees and allow them to manage their own time. We have superior health insurance. Our kitchen is fully stocked with plenty of complimentary food (fruits, yogurts, granola bars, different types of bread, cold cuts, tea…) and a high-quality coffee machine that also makes Espresso & Cappuccino. There is a beer tap which is especially great when sitting on the bean bags and gaming on the PS4, throwing some darts or playing some guitar. It’s not unusual to want to stick around or take a longer break and hang out. On the contrary, it’s welcomed!

CAREER AT SIMPLYPHP

The owners of our company are down to earth and they’ve been around for long enough to spot a great developer and recognize their potential. Communication is highly encouraged and hard work can lead to opportunities to evolve within the company. Collaboration is a great way to learn and grow and we want to see our staff thrive and succeed! If you’re a talented developer with decent communication skills in English, you’ll surely fit right in.

HOW WE WORK

We take the time to get to know you in order to include you in teams and projects that will suit you best. We work on a variety of projects; short and long term, in teams or alone. Our clients sometimes hire us to be a part of their team, to build a new project or do some maintenance. All our projects are managed by our Project Coordinators who also takes care of the planning and communication with the client. We are also strong believers of backing our developers. You are the expert and you will be treated as such by us and by the client. If the client needs to be redirected, then that’s what the Project Coordinator will tell them. We work for you, not you for us.

OUR WEAPON GALLERY

You have the choice to work on Linux or Mac but let’s be honest, we love Linux, particularly Fedora, almost equally to Ubuntu. In general, we work on a LAMP stack, and not limited to: Laravel, Symfony, Vue, Angular… depending on the client’s needs. We’re currently in the process of certifying our team, for example in Laravel.

INTERVIEW PROCESS

Our process is fast. Once you reach out to us, we request a 5-minute phone call at the time of your choosing. If all goes well, we are ready to meet you ASAP. The length of the meeting is usually between 1 and 1 ½ hours and consists of a first meeting with our HR manager, then with a Senior Developer and finally with one or both of our Co-Founders. When we make an offer, we suggest that you sleep on it in order to ensure that you’re making the right decision for yourself.
