Development Team Leader
Location : Newmarket
Post Date : 03 October 2017
Employment Type : Permanent
Job Reference : 0010113710SS
Job Classification : IT & Technology
Having been operating in NZ for over 10 years, this company is the fastest growing company in NZ in its field. They have recently expanded into Australia and are seeing phenomenal growth across the ditch. The offices are bright and open plan with free parking, gym and the best coffee in Newmarket!
Reporting to the CTO you will be leading a team of 3 intermediate/junior developers working alongside the Product Manager based overseas. The company operates three main web based applications with the biggest challenges being scalability as the consumer base is rapidly increasing. In addition, there is a smartphone app built with React Native and a requirement for API maintenance as the application feeds into 3rd party applications.
Strong systems administration skills are required as you will be problem solving if there are any server issues and as this is a multi-host environment (They have recently started developing with AWS) you will also have experience with cloud development.
How you can make your mark?
The application is developed in Symfony but this company will be looking at upgrading their platform in the near future so you will be giving input into that process. You will be giving your opinion on user experience and will be able to use your business acumen to guide decision making.
You will either be an experienced Senior PHP Developer with at least 10 years' experience (Symfony Framework is not essential) but also you may already be in a Team Leader/Manager position and be looking to join a high-growth company. Excellent communication skills are a must as you will be liaising with people both internally and externally and most importantly you will have leadership ability to guide the team over the long term
