Senior PHP Developer & Team Lead

We're looking for someone to lead our PHP development team and help solve complex problems for our clients through web applications.

The Senior PHP Developer and Team Lead role is both a senior developer and management role in the agency, which has responsibility to line manage PHP developers and help lead our web application development work in the agency. The leadership work is focussed on PHP, JavaScript, web application development, and technical architecture.

We’re looking for someone with strong PHP skills, a collaborative and supportive mindset, and good soft skills who is interested in a leadership role at a small business where they can make a difference.

We’re a user-centred & accessibility-centred studio. We take complex content and data and simplify them for users through good design. We work for a range of clients across the public sector, charity, arts/culture and science/tech industries. Recent clients include W3C, UK Parliament and Cambridge University Botanic Garden. Our tech platforms are Laravel, Symfony, WordPress, Craft CMS and Vue.js.

We believe in flexibility and supporting staff to do their best work. Our preference is for full-time though we may consider part-time hours. Our studio is based in Cambridge, UK. We currently have a hybrid work pattern, with working remote the default and the team coming into the office for meetings, to collaborate, or just to have a different work environment. You’ll need to be based in the UK for this role. Staff are expected to travel into the office when needed, this may be a few times a month or on busy projects a couple of days a week. You’ll also need to be able to travel for client meetings as and when required (normally Cambridge and London).
