My client, a financial startup based in the tech-hub of Shoreditch / Old Street are looking for a junior PHP Developer to join their team. You will be joining a startup organisation with a cool and flexible working culture. Your main responsibilities will be to work with a senior PHP developer to create a cutting-edge social platform built in Laravel. As well as working on new pages, the Back-End Developer will also work on business as usual, test existing pages and researching for future ones. Whilst this will be a predominantly backend position, you will get to learn the front-end too, so a minimal knowledge of HTML/CSS/JavaScript is highly appreciated.

This role will suit a keen junior programmer who is passionate about Laravel and PHP. If you don't have commercial experience, you will still be considered, however personal projects in PHP are a must and a can-do attitude essential.

Key duties:

  • Testing for issues and performance improvements
  • Collecting and organising new requirements
  • Researching on new features
  • Passion for learning new technologies!

Tech requirements:

  • Laravel
  • WordPress - desirable
  • Git + GitHub
  • MySQL
  • LAMP stack (no Microsoft here, thanks)
  • Composer
  • HTML/CSS/JavaScript basics


  • Materialize CSS or Bootstrap
  • Grunt
  • Server side experience
  • SEO
  • Strong database principles knowledge
  • Trello
  • If you can speak Italian, that's a real bonus, but not a requirement.

If you are an enthusiastic junior PHP developer looking to learn and expand your Laravel knowledge and work in a really fun environment please get in touch. the salary is £25,000 and comes with the following perks:

  • Flexible working hours
  • No dress code
  • Work in an exciting and involving start-up environment
  • Opportunity of fast career and salary increase
