Overview

If you are an experienced developer based in Eastern Europe and would like a full-time job working from home, this could be the opportunity you are looking for.

The Opportunity

We are an established US based company looking for two developers with what we would call a full stack skill set. But we’re not looking for ordinary developers, we want two people that will go the extra mile and really look after us, and in return, we’ll look after you.

One developer will be primarily involved in back end development. This person will spend most of their time making changes to existing code and coming up with innovative and effective ways to implement new features. We’re a relatively fast moving company and we like to try new things so you definitely won’t be bored. You’ll also need to be an expert troubleshooter.

The other developer will be primarily involved in integrating new features into the front end website and making UI/UX changes which help our customers navigate the website more easily. We have a strong commitment to our customers so it’s important that we make their experience as smooth as possible. We’ll be relying on you to help us do that.

For the back end role, you’ll need experience in the following;

  • PHP, MVC, OOP, MySQL, SSH, Linux
  • Custom API development
  • User Management
  • Payment Processing (PayPal, Authorize.Net)
  • Version Control & Code Repositories (SVN, Git, Mercurial)

For the front end role, you’ll need experience in the following;

  • UI, UX, PHP, HTML5, JS, jQuery, CSS
  • Bootstrap 3
  • Responsive Design
  • Photoshop (or Similar)
  • Version Control & Code Repositories (SVN, Git, Mercurial)

Qualities We Are Looking For

This opportunity is not just about what we need, we also care about what you need, so the qualities we value are those which will help us both grow. It’s important that you have excellent attention to detail, that you create clean code that is well structured and easily maintainable because it’s likely that other people will be working on your code.

It’s also important that your development is test driven, especially as the back end developer. When we pass the job on to the front end developer it’s important that any code you’ve produced works properly and has been thoroughly tested. In addition, it’s important that you deliver on time and meet deadlines.

A willingness to embrace challenge is also something we are looking for in both positions, as is creativity and innovation. Sometimes we’ll be asking you what the best way of doing something is, and we’ll be looking for new and creative ideas. We’ll also be encouraging you to stretch yourself.

The Small Print

Although we are a US based company, we are looking for developers based in Eastern Europe who will be working from home. Your hours would be 9 AM to 6 PM US Eastern time (with an hour off for lunch), Monday through Friday. Depending on where you are located, this would be approximately 14:00 to 23:00 GMT. Even if we don’t have work for you to do, we would need you to be available 100% of the time during your 8 hours, ideally on Skype.

Although you don’t need strong spoken English, you will need strong written English skills as well as the ability to read and understand English.

Just to be clear, you will be working on a freelance basis, not as an employee, but even so, once you have been with us for 8 months you’ll get 2 weeks paid vacation, on us.

Your starting pay will be $1500 USD per month, payable on the first of the month for the previous month. All payments are made via PayPal.

Ours is a fast paced working environment with opportunity for pay raises and bonuses for those who prove themselves. If you think you would enjoy working with us, please let us know who you are and why you think you would be a good fit. Tell us about your experience and what challenges you have faced and overcome.
