PHP/Laravel developer for subscription ecommerce startup

We’re looking for a solid midweight PHP developer to be the first in-house developer at Freddie’s Flowers, an exciting young business that delivers beautiful boxes of flowers straight to our customers’ doors for £20 a pop, all managed via a custom ecommerce system built on Laravel. We have been delighted by how well things are going and now need support to manage the rapid growth of the business.

Don’t worry, though: although you’ll be the first in-house developer, you won’t be alone. You’ll be working closely with our external developers, Big Fish, who’ll support you as you learn the ropes and will continue to work on the site with you; over time you’ll become the person primarily responsible for the Laravel web application that powers our business, but we don’t expect that on day one.

You’ll be working on everything from small fixes to big pieces of new functionality, and will be the first member of a growing team.

From the start, you’ll need to be comfortable with:

It would be great if you already knew about the following stuff too, but it can also be learned on the job:

We’re looking for someone who relishes the challenges and opportunities that come with being the first technical hire in a business, and wants to grow both themselves and the team that they’re a part of.

Since it's a totally new role, and since it involves interacting with an external agency so much, we'd be happy to consider remote working as an option and make the effort to figure out how that might work.

If that sounds like you, please email with a CV and brief covering letter and we’ll get in touch.
