This vacancy has now expired.
I am currently working with the best start up in Manchester.

Their impressive product has already attracted generous investment.

With a further multi-million-pound investment forecasted for 2019, you will have the opportunity to join them at a pivotal time of their journey to give strategic and creative direction on back-end development.

This is a true start-up with ambitious plans to grow on a level that will match the likes of Uber and Deliveroo. This will enable you to move into a Head of Backend Development role and build out a team.

This company is looking to change an entire industry which directly impacts billions of people worldwide. They have already proved the success of the platform and are also seeing a lot of scale week by week, which will require the implementation of DevOps practices.

Currently they are using PHP but in the next few months they will be re-platforming the entire system and building it on a Microservices Architecture using NodeJS, which you will play a key part in. Full training from PHP to Node will be provided if needed. This is a fantastic opportunity to join a team with zero technical debt and give strategic direction on a greenfield solution being built using the latest technologies.

Key Skills & Experience
- Knowledge / Experience of PHP
- Knowledge / Experience in Laravel 
- MVC Framework Experience (e.g Symfon, Yii)
- Willing to cross-train to NodeJS 

There will not be another opportunity like this in Manchester and interviews are taking place ASAP.

Please apply for a confidential discussion.
