    Senior Magento PHP Developer

    Are you a code wizard looking to work in-house for a dynamic global business where you can take ownership and help guide the company with your work and ideas?


    Driftworks want someone to join our tech team, to work on the development, support and maintenance of our own website and associated technical infrastructure.
    This is primarily a PHP developer role, primarily Magento related, with a focus on coding and a range of technical skills rather than straight-up web design.

    We are looking for a PHP Developer responsible for managing Driftworks back-end services and the interchange of data between our various tech platforms and our customers. Your primary focus will be the development and support of server-side logic, definition and maintenance of the central database, and ensuring high performance and responsiveness to requests from the front-end. You will also be responsible for integrating front-end elements built by co-workers and 3rd parties into the application. Therefore, an understanding of front-end web technologies is necessary.

    We’re not expecting you to be an automotive genius, but if you’re into cars and are the type of person who considers working somewhere that occasionally smells of petrol or tyre smoke is a positive thing, that’d be helpful.

    • Development of back-end elements for the Driftworks Web shop
    • Integration and configuration of user-facing elements developed by 3rd parties
    • Troubleshooting configuration and compatibility issues
    • Building efficient, testable, and reusable PHP, JavaScript and CSS code and modules
    • Solving complex performance problems and architectural challenges
    • Monitoring, reporting and ensuring best practice for the technical environment
    • Liaising with 3rd party suppliers and technical partners
    Skills and Qualifications
    • Strong knowledge of PHP web frameworks
    • Good knowledge of front-end technologies, such as JavaScript, HTML5, and CSS3
    • Understanding the fully synchronous behaviour of PHP
    • Understanding of MVC design patterns
    • Knowledge of object oriented PHP programming
    • Experience of high volume e-commerce, Magento M1 and M2 preferred.
    • Strong knowledge of the common PHP or web server exploits and respective patches.
    • Familiarity with SQL/NoSQL databases and their declarative query languages
    • Experience with APIs, App integrations and automation to get systems to work together efficiently and reliably
    • Experience of XML feeds, data gathering, scraping, handling and translating.
    • Proficient understanding of code versioning tools, such as Git
    • Documentation for testing and technical procedures
    • An ability to communicate and simply explain complex technical scenarios
    • The ability to be focused, methodical and organised in a vibrant, distracting and sometimes high-pressure environment
