Our client is a company of 70+ people who are looking to find some core PHP developers for their development team. They pride themselves on having a great work environment and culture; after they are done with all the pride stuff they actually deliver on the promise of a great place to work – not a lot of companies can say that. Oh, and their view of the mountains is pretty sweet too.
So, what exactly does “core PHP” mean? It means that they are looking for someone who looks at PHP code, knows what’s going on and isn’t afraid to jump in and improve it because they have the experience to know what they’re doing with the language. You know, one of those OOPHP types that can build it if they can’t find it.
This company is one that believes in things like open floor plans, quarterly hackathons, agile development, good benefits, and a bonus program where you can earn up to an extra $1000 per quarter.
It’s starting to stand out a bit from all those other places you hear about, right?
In order to get in the door you should know and believe in OOP preferably with PHP since that’s what everything is built in already; you should have the ability to write quality code out that works (pride in most of your code getting through QA unscathed is key); and while asking questions is the only way to get ahead, you should understand that having to ask the same questions all the time is wasteful and keeps people (yourself and your coworkers) from getting their own jobs done.

Send the title of your favorite book as well, because Jayna need some new reading ideas. She’s been reading tabloid newspapers and gossip blogs too much, it’s time for something more literary.
