Job Description

Location: work from home

We're currently seeking experienced PHP/LAMP engineers who have tackled the challenges that come along with building, deploying and operating large sites that cannot fail. Ideally you’ve had exposure to a variety of high- and low-level tools and technologies, with recent deep experience in object-oriented PHP5 running on top of a replicated, transactional MySQL environment.  And while you needn’t be a Linux kernel wizard, you should have a pretty solid mastery and be able to work magic with the command line when you need to. This position is focused on our customers' success, identifying the root cause of their problems, and helping to build automated solutions.

Proficient in:
- Javascript and relevant Javascript libraries (jQuery, YUI)
- HTML5 and CSS
- Relational Databases (MySQL, Postgres, Oracle)
- Source control systems (git, svn)
Experience in:
- Writing Backbone or Ember.js applications
- Writing and using RESTful APIs
- Writing unit tests and preferring Test-Driven Development
- Working in Agile methodology, pair programming environments
