Senior PHP Developer for web dev firm
September 22, 2009 1:01 PM

We (Synapse Studios) need a senior PHP developer with PHP 5/OO experience who can step in and help guide the growth we're expecting in the near-term. We've gotten along now for a few years with some great developers, but no one with structured experience who can bring our architecture and coding methodologies to the next level. That's who we're looking for.

We're also looking for someone that knows how to write clean and efficient PHP5 object oriented code at the enterprise level. Here is a list of our "absolutely-must-have" requirements:

* PHP 5 - object oriented experience
* SQL knowledge: basic and advanced (i.e. stored procedures, views, triggers, etc)
* HTML (can code by hand or in sleep)
* Subversion or other version control systems
* Some HTTP experience (you should know the difference between GET versus POST, what a 404 is versus a 200, 301 redirect, etc)
* Regular expressions (at least able to understand them even if they give you horrible, horrible nightmares)
* Model-View-Controller (MVC) experience (via frameworks such as Kohana, Zend, Cake, or Symfony for example)
* AJAX by way of jQuery, YUI or any other popular libraries
* Knowledge of design patterns
* Apache and mod_rewrite experience
* Linux system administration skills
* Extensive Javascript and CSS knowledge
* Experience with at least one other language (C, Perl, Java, Python, Ruby)
* Using and writing APIs

We need someone on site in Tempe, Arizona, but we're open to helping people relocate.

We're a younger group of motivated web developers and our company is growing rapidly. We keep things fun and interesting, have great office space in the downtown district, and do our best to give back to our community. Find more out about us at our site.
