Senior Platform Developer

We are looking for an amazing back-end developer with solid Laravel and PHP experience to help us bring our retail and loyalty products from concept right through to delivery.

You’ll join our team of awesome developers and designers in our Melbourne CBD studio, working with national and international clients on large-scale projects and products.

The team at Arkade truly understands how technology can affect people’s lives. We build and manage customer experience (CX) platforms that are so much more than websites, emails, ecommerce, apps and social media. So much so that we refer to ourselves as a loyalty agency as opposed to a digital one.

Our studio is in the heart of Melbourne’s CBD, 2 minutes walk from Melbourne Central station and retail district. It is right on the doorstep to the best food, coffee and shopping the town has to offer.

  • Work with a dynamic and motivated team of developers, product managers, and creatives
  • Be part of a dedicated Agile sub-team within the agency with clients and products to own
  • Forever engaging with leading - and bleeding - edge technologies and methodologies
  • Never a dull moment with a variety of on-going diverse products and projects
  • Actively participate in the ongoing evolution of your role and the way we work as a studio

You will be working closely with talented digital strategists, shaping new and innovative ideas into meaningful platforms. You will mentor and collaborate with other developers, and be responsible for the robustness and sophistication of what you build.

You can

  • Demonstrate deep understanding of the Laravel framework 
  • Work with other developers, in a teaching and learning capacity
  • Use and even create APIs and are savvy with web application security
  • Succinctly explain your work by means of tests and docs
  • Wrangle front end HTML, CSS and JS in a pinch (mainly React, JQuery, but angular is a plus)
  • Continually improve your code, toolset and processes and take others along for the ride

You have

  • 3+ years experience in Laravel
  • 5+ years experience in PHP application development
  • Experience with scalable AWS platform architecture
  • Experience with or desire to use CI/CD Tools
  • Have experience with more than one RDBMS (not just MySQL)
  • A collaborative and generous nature
  • High levels of accountability, motivation and time management skills

We offer

  • A team invested in you and your own personal development
  • A friendly, fun and motivated working environment
  • Respect for a healthy work/life balance
  • 4x RDO’s a year on top of paid holidays
  • A Fully stocked kitchen and drinks fridge

If this sounds like the perfect fit, then we would love to hear from you. Please send your CV to work@arkade.com.au
