Senior PHP Developer

Ui Designer in Birmingham, ENG

Posted 2019-03-25

Job Description
We are looking for Senior PHP Developer to work in our small but growing team based just outside of Leicester city centre. As someone with at least 3-years experience in this field you will lead on every aspect of the design and development of our internal projects as well as those from our diverse and varied client base.


We are a market leading and award-winning UK online learning company that specialise in providing small and medium sized businesses with quality yet affordable products and services.

We develop engaging and impactful online learning content designed to improve the skills, knowledge and confidence of our client’s employees as well as helping their business grow.


As an expert in our field, we question the obvious and explore ideas in great depth. We start with questions like why, who and what when developing our own projects as well as those for our clients. When we design a product or solution, we strip back the clutter and only use what we need to achieve the desired results. We don’t baffle clients with jargon either, we’ll just say it as it is; and if something isn’t quite right or isn’t working then we’ll say so and provide an alternative solution.


As our company grows, we are looking for a Senior PHP Developer to come on board with us.

We are expanding our product offering and are in the process of going through a complete re-brand. This is a great opportunity to join this team at the start of its journey and forge a rewarding career.

PHP 7+
MySQL 5.6+

A clear understanding of the JSON data format
Experience in Code Review
Ability to map out an idea into a full project specification / wireframes

The right candidate will also have the following skills and experience that can be evidenced in past work/projects;

Participate in the entire application life cycle, focusing on coding and debugging
Write clean code to develop functional web applications
Troubleshoot and debug applications
Continuously discover, evaluate and implement new technologies
Look for ways to automate processes to make the business more efficient

An incredible eye for attention
Ability to put forward ideas

Being able to work within our small team is vital to the success of the role.


You will be able to liaise with clients, suppliers and other team members on a day-to-day basis so excellent communication skills are essential. Being able to communicate and influence appropriately on the phone, in person, in writing and confidently contributing in internal meetings are an essential part of the role.

Problem Solving:

The ability to think on your feet and deal with problems as they arise, identify the root of the issue, seek a solution and implement it is key. We encourage each other to seek solutions before getting bogged down in what went wrong; a “can-do” attitude is paramount to achieving this.


The ability to work as part of a team, under instruction or independently are key skills for anyone working at Peritus. Being able to take on board positive and negative feedback on project work and implement amendments to improve the result is a huge part of life here.


We encourage accountability in our work, own your projects and take responsibility for the finished result. Working in a small team, the successful applicant will be a key part of our team and they will make a difference to our business every single day. We want TEAM players, not people clocking in and out! This is an opportunity to work with a vibrant and growing creative business.


The salary will be competitive and dependent on experience and the level of your technical knowledge. This will also be reviewed at key milestones and performance.

Good working environment, not far from the city centre with access to superb technical set ups.

Working with award-winning Directors, you will be provided with a clear progression path with training provided to support your personal and technical development.

Please specify your salary expectations in your application to be considered.
