Reliable CodeIgniter & PHP Developer (Full-Time)


Job Description

Hi there! Thanks for checking this job posting out!

I am looking for full-time CodeIgniter/PHP developer. You will be working on a wide variety of systems built using mostly CodeIgniter. Projects you will work on will include:

* Website and member's area.
* Email and push-message marketing systems (built in-house using 3rd party deliverability APIs such as Mailgun).
* Our API (built using Phil Sturgeon's REST library for CI).

All of the above systems are written in PHP using the CodeIgniter framework and MySQL.

You will ALSO help with developing new sites and services for our company by setting-up and modifying other scipts (not built with CI) from time-to-time.

This position will entail:

1. Maintaining existing systems.
2. Improving and optimizing existing systems.
3. Building new features for existing systems.
4. Building NEW services using a combination fo CI, standard PHP/PHP5, jQuery, JS, MySQL, and other tools. These may be scripts which we want you to install or things to make from scratch.

Desired Skillset:
1. CodeIgniter
2. PHP5
3. JavaScript & jQuery
4. HTML and Twitter Bootstrap UI framework.
5. MySQL and writing queries by hand (such as SELECT x,y,z FROM table_name WHERE id > 12345).
6. GIT

1. Be available on chat and Skype for daily syncs at pre-determined times.
2. Use our bug tracking system (CodeBase).
3. Comment your code so others know what's up.
4. You will work alongside and report to the person who created everything to this point, so you won't be "flying blind."
5. You should be comfortable working with a remote team. Our team is distributed across four continents and we use Skype, HipChat, and Google Hangouts on a daily basis.

You will likely need to learn new skills and upgrade your skillset from time-to-time while working for us. For example, we just started using Redis for some things.

Applying to this job
1. Generic template applications/responses will be discarded and disqualified immediately.

2. Please include links to your work. (github account, portfolio, communities your participate in, etc. whatever you have). I want to see examples of what you have done and who you are.

Initial "trial" Period
Should I choose to work with you, there will be a "trial" period (paid) where I will give you a project to work on. If the project goes well, we will keep you on full-time on an ongoing basis.

About the Company

Our company is US-based, however our team is distributed globally between the West Coast (US), Hawaii, Japan, and the Philippines. We are a loyalty marketing company with strong software/dev roots which rewards our members with points for doing things they already do online such as shopping, using our mobile apps, trying other apps, watching videos, and more.

I look forward to your application!
