We're looking for a Senior PHP developer with 5 plus years of backend development experience.

Formed in 2000, SOZO is an award-winning digital agency based in Cheltenham, UK. We are looking for a PHP developer to work on the development of complex comparison and B2B sites built within the Wordrpess ‘framework’ and ecosystem. This can be a remote or office based roll (in Cheltenham, UK), but being close enough to come for occasional meetings would be useful. 

If you are on a time zone more than 4 hours from the UK this would not work for us.

SUMMARY OF THE ROLE

You need to have the following skills and experience:

This role will be within a talented and experienced Wordpress development team producing high-end custom Wordpress sites. You will have the opportunity to work on complex comparison and B2B sites and practice advanced Wordpress development methodologies.

As well as working on advanced Wordpress sites you will also help with the on-going development of our startup theme - constantly striving to keep it up to date and improve development efficiencies. 


YOUR PROFILE
  • Although you may also have strong front-end skills which will certainly be useful, you are totally happy to work primarily as a back-end developer.
  • Excellent communication skills (verbal and written) and great listening skills
