About the position

We are looking for a Junior Web Engineer who is passionate about programming, open source, and the web. This is a full-time position.

Our needs

One of the most important things to us is your passion for learning and problem solving. We want you to have an understanding of object-oriented programming and relational databases, but we’ll work with you to evolve your skills and learn our infrastructure. You’ll also need strong communication skills, but since this in a junior-level position, extensive workplace experience is not required.

A large degree of our programming involves PHP 5, PostgreSQL and JavaScript to build websites and applications using modern MVC architectures and RESTful principles. Because of this we need someone who has experience with PHP, SQL and JavaScript. We follow modern PHP best practices such as using standards put forth by the PHP-FIG group and using Composer for dependency management.

Clean HTML, well-structured CSS, and a solid understanding of usability is important. In addition to back-end PHP and SQL programming, this position entails some front-end work. You’ll be interacting with JavaScript and jQuery daily. Being able to open up Photoshop and export graphics will definitely come in handy.

We’re looking for someone who works well both independently and in a team setting — someone who is organized, self-driven, curious, and passionate about the web. As this is a junior-level position, you are not expected to be an expert, but you should be dedicated to growing and learning.

  • Write clean and efficient PHP, SQL and JavaScript
  • Write semantic HTML markup and organized CSS
  • Work collaboratively with our creative team and other engineers
  • Build brand new applications and sites while also helping to maintain and edit existing ones.
