PHP Developer

Timisoara, Romania Full time

As a software developer, you will be part of a scrum team responsible for developing tools and core functionality in the Fronter learning platform, which is based on the LAMP stack.

You’ll get the opportunity to participate in all team activities ranging from planning to implementation, testing, QA and release.

The Fronter development teams work closely with our itslearning colleagues in Oslo, Bergen, Russia, Poland, Netherlands, and Boston. No development or testing task is one person’s responsibility. The team works together to take responsibility for each release.

Fronter is a platform historically implemented on a LAMP stack, but parts of the platform have been decoupled and implemented in other languages and frameworks, including Javascript and Python.

We expect you to be professionally curious, continuously developing your skill sets across the stack, focusing primarily on backend and API, while taking a keen interest in the other disciplines needed for continuous release. You must have a “can do” attitude with a thirst for knowledge and a drive for self-improvement. Most importantly you must care about progressing your team, your code and the end user’s experience.
