Full stack/PHP engineer

Edukey Education Ltd

We are a successful EdTech company, making great software for school teachers & finding innovative ways to solve real problems that teachers are facing in the classroom. To continue doing that at ever increasing pace, we are looking for a full stack software engineer to join us.


We are more than happy for you to work from home, however availability for physical meetings in the UK (Edinburgh or Pembrokeshire, Wales) is essential. We would also prefer someone in a similar timezone.

We are looking for a full stack developer and therefore working knowledge of entire stack is essential with emphasis to excellence in backend (php) development & above all else - great problem solving skills.

So, as far as stack goes:

Working knowledge of linux server administration & good idea about server infrastructure;

In-depth understanding of mysql (or comparable RDBMS), emphasis to optimisation & performance;

Excellent php (duh!) skills, industry experience with at least one mvc framework (we use cakephp);

Ability to solve essentially any front end problem that might arise in modern web, mastery of javascript/jquery along with css/html;

Care a lot about product and user experience and take responsibility for thinking like a user. We’re looking for people who don’t rely on a designer to figure UX/UI stuff out for them.

Besides knowing the technologies, you should be:

  • Methodical and mildly allergic to spaghetti code;
  • Well-balanced between efficiency and perfectionism;
  • Team player who is not afraid to contribute ideas & who is not upset if voted down;
  • Experienced with agile methodologies;
  • Able to manage your own time;
  • Great numerical & reasoning skills;
  • Overall excellent software engineer!
