PHP Developer

PHP Developer (Contract OR Permanent)

The PHP Developer will help to steer Capify through a period of transition as we look to retire a core back-end loan management system and replace it with a new 3rd party product over the next 12 months.

You will be part of a small team responsible for bringing the platform to End of Life in a controlled and supported way. You will be directly involved with application maintenance, system debugging, code reviewing, and supporting the business through this crucial period.

The legacy platform requires a PHP developer who is comfortable working with older versions of the framework and without many of the modern technologies and innovations that are considered current.

Key Deliverables

  • Build up knowledge of the platform architecture and dependencies and work with the business on delivering tactical solutions until the system can be retired.
  • · Work closely with the project manager running the transition initiative to capture any risks and mitigations.
  • Help improve the code quality and documentation of key business processes.
  • Participate in daily stand-up meetings.
