Stack Builders

Quito, Quito

Full Time


Experienced PHP Developer (Remote)

March 5, 2018

Are you the kind of developer that takes pride in the high quality and maintainability of your code?

Do you regularly apply TDD?

Do you work thinking of the current and future team that might have to work on your code?

Do you like to push the boundaries of the software industry one project at a time?

This might be the job you’re looking for.

What you’ll be doing

We expect that the developer hired for this position will be able to:

  • Deliver high quality code while meeting and exceeding client expectations.
  • Maintain, refactor and add to an existing code base.
  • Lead a team to tackle new projects when needed.
  • Conduct code review and pairing.
  • Communicate clearly and often about the project to us.
  • Keep expectations clear with the client.
  • When working with more junior developers support them and help them grow with clear, candid and respectful feedback.
Who we are

Stack Builders is an Agile software consultancy based in New York with offices in Quito, Ecuador. We are dedicated to going above and beyond not only by offering great services for our clients, but also by pushing the software industry forward through the use of better tools and practices.

Some of our projects are currently using Ruby, Rails, and Haskell as a back-end, with some PureScript, JavaScript and TypeScript (Node.js) on the front-end. We are passionate about providing clean and maintainable code that surpasses our client's expectations.

We work in a variety of languages and therefore we value developers who are flexible about working with different stack configurations, that feel confident about tackling new challenges, and that aim toward excellence.

If you’d like to work with passionate developers that value quality and best practices, this is the place for you!

REQUIREMENTSWho we’re looking for

We are looking for a remote contractor with a very solid PHP background and experience working with agile teams. We expect that this person would be strict when applying good OOP/TDD practices and value high quality clean code. As a part of this process we might ask you to complete a code challenge or exercise to review or for an interview.

A high English level is a must since we value strong communication skills and conduct all our work using this language.

We use Git and version control for all projects and expect proficiency using them.

This position would most likely last for at least 6 months and would require a commitment to provide 40 hours a week (occasional vacation time notifying in advance is fine) and generally working during NYC business hours (EST) from 9 to 6 (at least 5 hours need to overlap with your time zone to be able to do pairing sessions).

Please include a link to a GitHub profile with your personal projects or open source contributions in PHP that we can evaluate when applying. Please note that we will report any proprietary code shared with us.

If we think you might be a good fit, a couple of interviews will follow.
