compensation: $50,000-$70,000 Annually
employment type: full-time
telecommuting okay

You're a dedicated developer who loves figuring out complex systems and make them work together. You are the kind of person who is great at OOP using PHP, you're great at setting and following coding standards, and you may very well in your spare time play with things like Vagrant and Docker to solve deployment problems and because they are interesting technologies.

You're looking for a position where you can work in the comfort of your own home/workplace. You're happy to work on your own, and very comfortable working with an International, online team.

You won't settle for a half-baked solution and gets upset when the client points out a mistake or an edge case you didn't find yourself.

You're happy to work with a team using GitFlow or can work totally on your own. You can communicate well both written and verbally in English.

You've probably made public commits on GitHub, either resolving issues with other people's code or contributed directly to open source projects of any size. I'd guess you'll already have a profile on StackExchange, asking for help or answering questions. Ideally answering :-)

When you hit a wall you'll figure it out; you won't let anything stop you. You take a look at code you have written and will happily refactor it to improve it.

When we have an ongoing launch, and something goes wrong with our system - you'll work 20 hours in a stretch, if needed, to resolve any issues under your control. There's no need for us to ask, you'll just get on and do it.

You understand unit testing and are very happy to make sure you have as close to 100% code coverage as possible.

LAMP/LEMP, Composer, PSR-0 vs PSR-4, Dependency Injection, PSR-7, micro vs full stack MVC - you know exactly to what I'm referring.

You're also highly proficient in front-end JavaScript coding. Although we have front-end designers who will take care of most of HTML and responsive CSS coding, you are the kind of guy that will look at their code, and you'll want to make it better. Tighten it up, ensure the semantics are validated, and when the front-end developers struggle to use APIs such as Vimeo's playback API with tracking capabilities, you're the person who gets it all working, in time for our launch deadline.

Your working hours will vary but will mainly be during the New York business day. Although we're an International team, the management and the majority of our Tech team is based on the East Coast of the US and in the eastern half of Europe.

What You Will Be Doing

You're the Team Leader and will have three other front-end and back-end developers working with you. You'll understand how to bring out the best in them through encouragement and nurturing, and live into the five core values of our company. We believe in people. We believe in love & care. We believe in integrity. We believe in fun. We believe in growth.

You will be responsible for continuing our PSR-7 compliant dashboard that handles our checkout system, integration with our CRM system (Infusionsoft), building out Client dashboards and much more. You'll be involved in developing our new client and staff facing dashboard, using Laravel 5.6.

On a daily basis, you will be immersed in our PHP codebase, developing and improving reporting, and be a crucial part of developing a new membership management system to handle our thousands of clients.

What Are You Looking For?

You're looking for a long-term relationship where you can contribute and be a valued part of the team.

You'd like to work for someone who actually understands what it's like to code, someone who can code reasonably proficiently themselves, someone who can provide clear guidelines, who knows what it's like being engrossed in finding a solution - and who is passionate about making code and the web solve real business challenges.

You might also want to do something worthwhile - we're an organization that helps people achieve their dreams, by giving them the tools and the belief they can do it. And you can be a significant contributor to that.

You are open to personal development and ideally spiritual development as well. We expect you to grow as a person and as a team member while you work with us. You must be a passionate, skilled professional.

Perks include:

- Paid Time Off

- Company Paid Holidays

- Opportunity to work in a fast-growing, heart-centred business with a mission for helping people build their dreams.
