Ocasta · Dec 5th 2019
Hello! We're Ocasta - a friendly, diverse team that design, build and maintain Oplift, our Digital Operations Platform and other custom solutions.
We are looking for a PHP developer to add to our small but talented server team. When not drinking coffee (other beverages are available) or eating cake you'll be working with Cake - CakePHP that is - extending an e-commerce platform for a national retailer. We know you love PHP but we'll also give you the opportunity to learn new technologies - for example our typical stack is Golang, GraphQL & microservices hosted on AWS.
We have a great office in Brighton and aim for a good work life balance which means we don't mind where in the UK you are based as we're happy for you to work remotely. We encourage anyone applying to read some of the Five minutes with... series of posts we have on our website where our Ocastars talk about why they enjoy working here.
