Senior Backend PHP Engineer (d/f/m)


Madrid, Spain | Posted: 1 year ago

This job is expired and may no longer be accepting applications.

What you will do:

  • Design, develop, drive: Solution design, development, testing, shipping, monitoring and maintenance are all done by ourselves in our 80 different applications and services

  • Use your brain (a lot): Use your experience, hands-on and can-do attitudes to solve complex problems in one of the most prolific engineering teams in the vast startup hub of Berlin. (1600+ releases in 2017)

  • Raise the bar: Your personal skill set and solid experience bring direct impact to our teams. By sharing your views and experiences, you add to our diverse culture which makes everyone of us better every day

  • Lead the pack: Small temporary project groups or new permanent teams get kicked off on regular basis. We always need leaders being ready to take over a business unit’s services or provide “POC and delivery” on untouched fields

What you will learn:

  • AUTO1 is disrupting the automotive industry. Most of the things we do have never been done before. Every day we are scaling and tuning the core platform and create tools to launch new green field applications

  • Cutting edge technology stacks and the drive to always think about the next thing to incorporate without getting bloated. All projects are on PHP 7.*, mainly using the symfony framework from versions 2.x to 4.x. We employ docker, mysql, postgresql, elasticsearch, supervisor and AWS technologies like ec2, ecs, sns/sqs, s3, elasticache and more

  • Migrating PHP MVC applications to modern 12factor microservices has its own challenges and these require creative approaches

How you will progress:

  • On the second day most new starters are ready to code

  • Around two weeks later your first lines of code will most probably hit production

  • In one month your impact to your team starts to become measurable 

  • After half a year you will have significant domain knowledge of the topics you have been working on and be a contact point on this for all your peers

  • After one year at AUTO1 you have become a core committer to a two digit number of our applications, being broadly as much as deeply experienced with technical and business challenges in your team and its direct vicinity

What you should bring:

  • You are very smart and can understand complex problems swiftly

  • You have 5+ years of professional experience in PHP programming

  • You have a good understanding php ecosystem

  • You have a passionate opinion on how object-oriented PHP code and applications should ideally look like, but you’re not too dogmatic to ignore every-day needs of a business

  • You bring at least 2 years experience with symfony based technologies.

  • You must have a good level of English.

What you will get:

  • Colleagues striving for excellence while using the latest technologies

  • Relocation support that includes assistance with visa, apartment search and refund of moving cost (if needed)

  • A beautiful and modern office in the heart of Madrid with free drinks & fruits

  • Team and company events

  • Flexible working hours

  • Annual salary reviews weaved into our feedback cycle

Sounds interesting? Upload your CV with a note of your salary expectations. We are looking forward to your application.
