About Us

Our mission is to enable digital transformation in organisations that deliver social good. We work with Charities across their digital stack helping organisations to rebuild their processes using flexible open source tools. We help organisations reimagine the way they work so they can focus on impact.

We're a bootstrapped startup that has grown to over 35 in the team based solely on word of mouth from the work we've been producing. Were a distributed team, with staff in over 15 countries and a head office in Shoreditch, London. We offer flexible hours and a real team mentality, working together to make things better.

Uniquely, all our solutions are open source, helping our work to have the greatest possible impact. Our clients include Charities such as Wikimedia, Farm Africa and Amnesty International, but also companies, trade associations and government bodies too.

The role

We are looking for an experienced senior PHP backend engineer to work with us on a range of PHP Symfony 4.x based products for the not for profit sector.

Compucorp is split into product teams. You would be joining as a senior member of one of these teams, being a part of product decisions, from inception through to release. You will use the latest technologies and will have responsibility to make architectural and technical decisions on the future direction of new platforms that will have significant impact. Were also a heavily process driven team, and you will in time be expected to contribute both to the following of processes, but also to their maintenance and improvement including CI/CD tooling and infrastructure.

The platforms we build are business process focussed for the not for profit sector, so expect to be working on functionality to help support ecommerce, marketing and payment processing but with a not for profit fundraising twist.

As a Senior PHP Engineer you'll be responsible for:

  • Planning and implementing the architecture of web platforms, REST APIs and CLI tools
  • Applying software development best-practices and keeping a clean and easy to maintain codebase
  • Maintaining documentation
  • Writing technical specifications
  • Sharing knowledge with other members of the team
  • Participating in planning meetings where we discuss priorities and new features development
  • Code Reviews
