Senior/Lead PHP Developer   

Come join NZ startup of the year (Hitech 2016) in building  this  highly demanded fast growing SaaS product that’s truly disrupting the Ag industry with their Fintech solutions. You will play with the latest stack and enjoy our cutting edge rapid development and the impact you will make from day 1.

Who are we

What started as a simple idea to keep ahead of the financial state of a farm has now grown into an award winning SaaS business  and a platform where the farmer, the accountant, the consultant and the banker collaborate in real time and gain great insight to the financial performance of the farm. We are pumped about the partnerships we have with Xero, LIC, leading banks and accounting practices and the rapid demand and positive impact we are seeing across NZ, Oz and the US (so far).

Our culture is second to none, we have people from all walks of life - from young farmers wanting to give back to the industry (in a non farming way) to gadget junkies that geekout to the latest tech and love the start-up way of life. We love building cool tech, working with like minded individuals and bringing this vision to life.

You will enjoy having complete ownership of your work and thrive in a lean/dynamic rapid development environment. You will see the impact you will make on a daily basis and get a real kick out of growing this amazing product.

Whilst you will code like a boss, this is by no means just punching endless lines of code, you will be involved in driving the technical direction of our product, help make crucial decisions and drive world class architecture and solutions.

We are seeking sharp web developers  that enjoy playing with the latest  tools and working on high profile projects. It would be super cool if you have experience in a similar technology stack but we're happy to  help you bridge any gaps as you we are mostly interested in your overall talent, personality and great attitude.

Ideally your technical tool belt should include: PHP, HTML, CSS, VueJs, Nginx, MySQL, MongoDB. Experience with modern MVC frameworks, ideally Laravel and/or Symfony. Your experience developing cloud products in Amazon AWS or similar environments would be highly desirable.

 What to expect?

  • A highly collaborative environment working with an encouraging and talented team
  • Complete flexibility and ability to work from home
  • Self-management is the norm and leadership is more about mentorship and guidance
  • Professional development galore where you won't help but grow
  • Competitive salary PLUS company options
  • Longer leave allowance - additional 5 days
  • Free daily caffeine hit, Figured getup, fun workplace, mac gear to name a few

At the end of the quiz, you'll be asked to upload a photo. This doesn't have to be a photo of you – it's a chance to show us what makes you unique and why you'll fit our company. You can prep this in advance or use your device's camera when you get to the last page. There are easy steps to follow for either process.
