About Commerce Kitchen
We like to think of ourselves as superheroes. Superheroes who enjoy beer and Thai food, and the occasional Bomb Ball match.
Commerce Kitchen’s superteam of web developers, designers, SEOs, writers, social media ninjas, and project managers aren’t planning on taking over the planet; we just want to make the virtual universe better for everyone by designing and building crazy-user-friendly sites and apps that are easily found in search, and by elevating the level at which people do business on the internet.
We love what we do. A whole lot. Like, a lot a lot a lot.
Our Approach to Development
Inspired by some of the other amazing agencies out there, Commerce Kitchen believes in the paired approach to programming. When two people program together they are much more productive, more creative, and, honestly, a hell of a lot less bored.
Because there’s always someone checking your work–and you’re always checking your partner’s work–there is much less opportunity for errors that easily slide by one set of eyes.
Paired programming is invigorating, inspiring, and effective. Come join a pair.
Friend: your primary mission will be to make improvements to a large existing enterprise web product with PHP development tools.
We are looking for very strong LAMP stack experience, including Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP. The system you will be working with will have an e-commerce focus and custom API components. That means we need you to have API and transactional experience.
Required skills will include:
OOP (object oriented programming) and common design patterns for the web. PHP for web development using Apache and MySQL, meaning you understand how to write queries, create tables, and interact with the command line interface. You must know how to perform optimizations and have excellent SQL skills.
Experience with Linux including shell commands, scripting, Linux permissions model, and basic configuration. You will also possess experience working with some form of version control software such as Subversion/SVN and GIT.
We’re looking for a superhero to join us who has good communication skills, the ability to work independently, and works well with a sidekick as part of a paired programming team.
You will be working directly with project managers and analysts, and you may speak directly to customers for requirements clarification, depending on the needs of the project.
Desirable skills include: Experience with Smarty Templates, CSS, JQuery, and a working knowledge of GIT. Experience with database modeling with MySQL is preferred.
If you are interested in putting your superpowers to use in this context please contact our Chief Firefly Pilot Tynan Szvetecz — email@example.com.
Compensation & Benefits
Since we are a team, we’re looking for people who have our back. In return, we offer competitive rates for our term contracts and lovely salaries for our full time employees. Once you prove your stuff, health benefits too. Did we mention Wine Friday? Endless supply of magic burritos? Rec room?
