About the Job

The company is looking to expand our development resources in order to meet our demand for new products. You will be the primary developer for a new and as-yet-unreleased web application, running on Laravel 5.4 and using Spark.

We've gotten this application started and functioning as an MVP, but need a talented individual to take this over and launch before the end of October.

About You

The ideal candidate will have the following traits:

  • Have an excellent grasp of the Laravel framework, demonstrated from a prior project that was shipped and non-trivial.
  • Comfortable building a functional UI in Vue.js acceptable for B2B style applications.
  • Solid understanding of Object Oriented Programming in PHP.
  • Experience with interactive graphs (Highcharts a plus)
  • Experience with version control (Git / branches, migrations, rollbacks, etc).
  • Comfortable taking a series of user stories and translating those into well tested features (we happen to use Pivotal Tracker to assist with this).
  • Must be a team player and great communicator (particularly if you are remote).
  • Be available during standard U.S. working hours to communicate with other team members (Project lead, code review with other developers, etc.)


This is a full time contractor position with the possibility of becoming a salaried employee in the future.

We are offering between $35.00 an hour and $55.00 an hour in U.S. Dollars, depending on experience. This is equivalent to between $72,800 USD and $114,400 USD per year.
