Full-Stack Engineer (PHP/JS)

Looking for the next big move in your career? We’re a fully remote (since before covid!) international digital studio (growing 2x yearly, 30+ people) looking to hire a Full-Stack Engineer across the PHP and Javascript stacks. Sounds maybe interesting? Read on…

🥱 The TL:DR;

We’re looking for a Full-Stack Engineer focused on PHP and Javascript. As a Full Stack engineer at ColorElephant you’ll work across a variety of projects in adding brand new functionality and ensuring bugs are squashed. This is a great opportunity for someone that likes to experience different technologies and industries but requires someone able to jump across projects and able to work in a fluid environment where there’s a lot of change happening. You work alongside your team of designs, QA and internal project managers in weekly sprints. This is a fully-remote, permanent, full-time position.

👉 This is for you if…

1. You’re looking for a remote, long-term position
2. You have experience (2/3 years) in Javascript and PHP at production-level;
3. Strong experience in Laravel;
4. Strong experience in React;
5. Strong experience in Vue.js;
6. You have hands-on experience with MySQL, Postgres;
7. You’ve got great technical communication skills: you can articulate your thoughts clearly;
8. You’re ok and happy to work across a variety of projects getting exposed to different industries and codebases;
9. You need to be curious;

Note: You’ll see we never specify stuff like “Be a team player” or “Be dedicated” and stuff like that. That is a base requirement for any position these days, but just know we also like these things people usually ask for:  motivated, focused, hard-worker that likes to grow and learn more, that works well with others and has a positive attitude 😎

💪 This is even better if…

1. Experience with MongoDB;
2. Have developed large-scale Laravel projects before;
3. You’re able to work without micro-management and constant guidance, but rather can understand the high-level needs and the tasks needed and take it from there.
4. Experience with React Native;
5. You have a natural interest for all things programming/tech — you don’t mind learning, you actually love learning.
6. Experience with Node;
7. You’re able to stop, think for yourself and act.

🤓 Being an engineer at ColorElephant

We’re not Google or Facebook. We know that. But we provide ambitious, eager-to-learn engineers with unique opportunities to work on international, large-scale needle-moving projects having insane levels of ownership. You can be more or less seasoned, and you can either be working directly with the client — having contact with successful entrepreneurs and ambitious individuals — or be part of an internal team delivering the project. Regardless, we can promise one thing: you won’t be freaking adjusting pixels. You’ll have ownership (and with that, responsibility) to develop entire functionalities and products. You’ll be able to grow and learn, you’ll be given trust and expected to run with it. You’ll face challenges and fck up, and we’ll clean it together and learn. You’ll have a close-knit team without politics, “power wars” and bullshit. Here’s what matters for us: delivery (ship sht!) with quality, self-improvement and support of others. If you do that, you’ll have tons of opportunities here — to grow, to learn, to take additional responsibility, to be exposed to unique international projects and people.
