You are a technically curious Backend PHP Developer that wants to be part of a core development product team. You do understand (and maybe even already have experience with) the power of things like TDD, DDD, CQRS ? Then apply for the position of Senior Backend Developer (PHP) at VONQ and be part of our team that builds our flagship product, tools and APIs that serve global customers! #gettingthingsdoneright

As a Senior Backend Developer in the VONQ Product Team, you will be leading critical product development efforts and get your hands dirty in the implementation of various applications/services. You'll be working closely with our CTO and our product management team.

You will be contributing to our flagship product called Job Marketing Platform (JMP). It’s a (big) data-driven application with a recommendation engine to serve multiple personas. JMP incorporates the team’s learnings and best practices including CQRS and event sourcing. Although it’s a young product we’re practicing LEAN methodology to gradually evolve it in a modular way and having a very ambitious roadmap in mind.

What you actually will do
           Work in an agile (scrum) environment and deliver high quality applications/services
           Pro-actively lead development efforts for new product initiatives and feature development
           Mentor and support team members
           Support the devops team in utilizing practices such as CI, CD, and automated release management
           Write robust and efficient code primarily using PHP, Symfony and MySQL, and learn other languages/frameworks if needed
