Tech manager / senior full stack Developer PHP

We are looking for a tech manager / senior PHP developer for our team in Valencia, Spain. You will be joining a mere technical orientated development company. As the tech manager you have your own tasks and projects and you will be supporting the team members by helping defining the tasks, discuss the chosen solutions. You will probably spend 40% of your time supporting the team. We also expect you to explore and investigate new techniques, trends etc. and give advise about if and how to implement.

We pride ourselves on being developer oriented, because we believe this is the best way to hold up to the standards our clients expect from us. Randock is run by former developers and technical savvy people.

Randock is founded by two Dutch IT companies. We work for clients from all over Europe and are focused on creating custom software, designed and developed from scratch. We develop our applications in PHP, mainly using Symfony as our framework of choice. We use scrum, use Docker, Git, do Behat and unit testing and use a Domain Driven Design approach (DDD). All code is reviewed and deployed automatically. Depending on the application, we use tools such as RabbitMQ, Elasticsearch, Selenium, CasperJS et cetera.

You will be added to a team of four developers. The team is working on 2 to 3 projects at a time. We need you to manage the sprints, help your team solve technical issues and help them to make the right architectural choices. You must be able to understand all projects and be able to think fast and help the team in making the most efficient choices.

What we offer

We are dedicated making our developers happy. We do this by creating an interesting technical development environment, where you get to work on challenging and varied projects. We offer training; time for you to work on your own projects and of course a lot of social activities and ways to relax at the office. We organize training and meetups to further boost your knowledge. We offer a good salary, based on experience and knowledge. Training and social activities are also included.

The projects

We have several interesting projects:

  • International application for the travel business: existing application, rebuild because of new features, better traffic load and international roll out.
  • Action Dash: online application for starting and managing projects to fund money for NGO’s and charity projects.
  • Artwork Dash: online artwork management and production application. Mange open artwork files, version control, collaborate on artwork, quotation, orders and production.
  • Let’s go golf application: invite friend, select course, book and pay, share results.

If you have an interesting project yourself we are interested to look at the opportunities and do it together.

About you

Our clients normally ask us to scope, build and maintain their (web) applications from scratch. You should be comfortable working on any part in the development chain.

We also complement remote development teams, with whom you work remotely together. Being able to communicate and express yourself is therefore crucial to the job. Traveling abroad for meetings and such can be part of the job, but mostly you will be working from our office in Valencia.

We are looking for a senior developer with management skills and at least five years of experience with object orientated programming, ideally using Symfony as your framework of choice. You should be able to write clean, easily maintainable code. Being knowledgeable in a specific subject (for example, message queues, high availability, data searching) is a big plus.

So, in a nutshell:

  • 5+ years experience with OOP, preferably Symfony
  • Experienced with Git, phased deployment.
  • Experienced in HTML, CSS, JavaScript.
  • Experienced with DDD.
  • Experienced with Docker.
  • Bachelor or master in a computer science related field.
  • Fast thinker.
  • Strong communicator.

Our office is located in the center of Valencia Capital.
