Job Description

Junior Developer | PHP/JavaScript | Manchester | Glassdoor 4.5-star rating | up to 25k + 10% bonus | Sponsorship available

The Company

Manhattan Partners are exclusively working with a thought leader in their industry, with a unique digital platform and analytics expertise. Operating in over 140 countries with a growing list of successful client case studies across the globe and 1 million users using their platform daily.

This is a playful workplace with breakout areas where you can regularly use the table tennis facilities. Enjoy free drinks and snacks, work from home on Wednesdays, flexi start time between 8-10 am, with free parking or a 2-minute walk away from the closest transport links which are only 20 minutes from the Manchester City Centre. The main rule to follow is no politics, and best of all, Friday breakfast deliveries!

The Projects

Do you want to work for a company that cares about the culture you work in? A fun working environment and a fantastic team? If the answer is yes, then this is the role for you!

You will be working across all major cloud platforms, such as AWS, Google Cloud and Microsoft Azure. Working with large global brands and even have the potential to travel and work abroad.

Due to rapid and successful expansion on an international level, we are looking for a curious and self-motivated Junior Developer who has a good understanding of their specialised language and tools. Whether that’s PHP, JavaScript, Go or any other languages. You don’t need any commercial experience, although your private GitHub must be up to date with examples of any work you have done in your own time, as part of a collaborative project. We are looking for someone who wants to learn and be developed within the business, enjoy challenges, be open and transparent about the problems they face.

The Role

You will be reporting directly into the Senior Developer, who has worked their way up within the company from a junior position within 5 years. You will receive full support from your manager, with training opportunities and the chance to work alongside the best collaborative teams. The company has a flat hierarchy, with highly skilled professionals who are considered to be experts in their field with above-average experience for their roles, such is the level that this client operates at.

The company is all about how you’ll fit in. They’ll offer you a Learn to Earn rewards scheme of training to improve your skills and keep you current. Every Friday, you’ll have the opportunity to spend 20% of your time on your own projects to collaborate with other colleagues whose skills you can leverage to learn.

· Knowledge of PHP 7

· Learning more on PHP
