Salary: Up to £30,000

Location: High Legh, Cheshire

Patron Hallow is a small but growing technology company that develops products and applications to assist in multiple sectors. We are seeking to fill the key position of a PHP Developer in our High Legh office and we are looking to fill the position as soon as possible.

The successful candidate will be working directly under the Chief Technology Officer and will also at times take instruction from the Directors of the company. The candidate may also be required at times to assist other developers in the team and help with training apprentices.

We're a small young team who work very well together. We're looking for a candidate that will gel with the existing team. We mostly build web applications around our custom PHP framework. It's fast, easy to build upon and to extend. We keep it clean, tidy and free of code bloat. We push things along the production line using SVN and the candidate would be expected to also test their work. There's a mix of Object Orientated and Procedural functions leaning more towards the latter so we're looking for someone who is happy working with both, and someone who's open minded enough to choose the appropriate method based on need rather than current trends.

Most important is that the candidate has a very good sense of logic, common sense and the initiative to work things out on their own when required.

We don't expect you to know everything already, but here are some of the skills we hope you have:

  • Server Side PHP development
  • Front end HTML and Javascript development
  • Understanding of MySQL databases including database design and maintenance
  • Good eye for design, layout and usability
  • Ability to write clean, efficient and readable code
  • Experience of Jquery Javascript library - desirable, not essential
  • Understanding of AJAX - desirable, not essential
  • General understanding of MVC design patterns and frameworks - desirable, not essential
  • Enthusiasm and an interest in all things technology

Candidates are recommended to hold a driving license due to the rural location of our office.
