Strings IT Recruitment is specialized in helping IT professionals, engineers and other tech specialists discover better career opportunities. Free of charge, of course.

Our client is a German-Russian startup that - unlike most startups - is very well-backed financially for at least a couple of years. The product they are developing is a gift card marketplace that allows users to buy their favorite gift vouchers at a discount and sell unwanted gift vouchers for cash. Initial target markets: Germany and Russia.

The team consists of top-notch experts who already have experience in creating a multi-million dollar business. Currently, they are looking for a Lead PHP Developer to join their newly-created tech hub in Sofia, Bulgaria.

Your skills & experience:

  • At least 4 years of experience in PHP development;
  • At least 1 year experience in leading a small-medium development team;
  • Experience with API-driven applications, ideally involving native Mobile apps;
  • Experience with nginx configuration, caching and php-fpm;
  • Experience with setting up transparent logging and monitoring tools;
  • Solid understanding of application profiling, optimisation and load testing;
  • Strong practical experience with Git and popular branching & CI processes / tools;
  • Strong practical experience with Laravel/Lumen or Symfony/Silex - if both, that's a strong plus;
  • Strong practical experience with relational databases (MySQL or Postgres) and ORMs (Doctrine or Eloquent);
  • Fluent English;
  • Entrepreneurial and independent mindset - you must be able to work independently with remote guidance, and enjoy it ;)
  • Startup mindset - incl. the necessary work ethics (12-hour work days, working on weekend).

Bonus points:

  • Experience with AWS products;
  • Experience with configuration management tools (Ansible, Chef, Puppet);
  • Experience with Docker as a strong plus.

The offer:

  • Starting salary: 4000-5000 bgn net/month - depending on your skills and experience;
  • Very informal and relaxed working environment;
  • A shiny MacBook Pro or a powerful PC laptop - whatever you prefer;
  • Bring your pet to the office if you would like - if it’s either a dog or your goldfish;
  • Working out of the office is OK (not all the time) as long as you do your job;
  • Opportunity to be part of the growth of a huge business.
