Our client uses Deep Learning, NLP and advanced linguistics to teach computers how to understand language, and find actionable insight for their clients. As a Full Stack PHP Developer, you will work on their range of SaaS products, building new products and maintaining existing ones. They are a revenue-generating, growing startup. You will work with other members of their Scrum team to design products and determine how the technical requirements of the product will be met.
For existing products, you will manage the hosting (Rackspace servers managed via Laravel Forge) and triage, and resolve issues as they may arise. The team will day to day consist of two or more developers (including you) and a Linguist/Account Manager. Where needed, a Graphic and UX Designer will be available. An important part of your role will be to help design the user interfaces and workflow, consulting the designer where required.
They were born out of a spin-off from a larger Digital Marketing agency with whom we share an office, so there a dynamicant office atmosphere and social occasions. This means that although they are a relatively small start-up, they have a range of experience to draw on where needed. They have an encouraging culture and try to work together on problems and ask advice when we need it.
Their PHP framework of choice is Laravel. Their product ecosystem consists of a few core shared services (each as their own application) and a Laravel application providing the Dashboard for each SaaS product. Some knowledge of Python or an interest in learning it would be helpful as they have some Python microservices to make use of NLP and Machine Learning libraries.
They also try to have reasonable automated testing coverage where possible, using a mixture of browser, feature and unit testing.
