What We are Looking For

- Knowledgeable in Linux/Unix system administration including Apache+PHP installation and configuration, scripting (bash, etc) and package management.
- Open Source Advocate. Most of the software we work with is based on open source technologies. We want candidates familiar with using open source development tools and prefer people who are or have contributed to open source projects.
- Someone who embraces teamwork and can keep up in a face-paced environment. Must be able to stay focused, yet knows when to ask questions.
- Work will include roughly 70% backend PHP development and 30% frontend work.
- Perform code reviews (pull requests).
- Attend weekly, online sprint planning meetings (Mondays).
- Attend daily, online stand-up meetings.
- While we expect you to be working roughly 8am – 5pm CST, Monday-Friday we can be a bit flexible.
Warning to Consulting Shops
This isn’t our first rodeo. We are looking for a first-round draft pick so help us by not wasting our time with junior level candidates. Please send us no more than two candidates from your company. We have a long memory so we will remember who sent us serious contenders and we will definitely factor that in on future opportunities.
