PHP Developer (Laravel) – Nottingham (Hybrid Remote) -  £50,000

Laravel | Microservice Architecture | Test Driven Development | Training and Development Budget | Remote Work

Ada Meher is currently working with a leading agency, with offices in Central Nottingham, who are recruiting for a Backend focused Engineer to work on some of their large-scale Laravel builds. The majority of the projects are greenfield in nature, using the latest in Laravel technology as well some Vuejs/Typescript and AWS based microservices, with a smaller proportion of the work focused the refactoring and maintenance of older code as they look to avoid any technical debt. They hold engineering standards in high regard so if you're looking for a company with an affinity for rigorous testing processes this could suit well. There is no firm requirement for TDD experience, but Unit testing is a must.

With an office hub in the centre of Nottingham, they value the sense of collaboration in this space as well as their employee’s autonomy and as such operate a hybrid model requiring a weekly office presence. The client has flexibility and autonomy at the core of their culture, so whilst there is an expectation of an office-based presence they are more than happy to work this around other life commitments to find a solution which suits all.

The client also prioritise the development of their staff, with every new starter being offered a choice of professional accreditation to work towards in their first 6 months as they aim to constantly improve their quality of work. They also offer target-based progression incentives to financially reward hard work and development.

The ideal candidate will have both the experience working with in OOP PHP and relevant MVC frameworks, preferably Laravel, and be enthused by the chance to develop solutions to enterprise-scale requirements, using a modern approach incorporating TDD. Given the greenfield nature of the work there is plenty of opportunity for input from all levels on the design of the solution and a real chance for the right person to really make their mark.


To be considered:

  • Demonstrable experience of OOP PHP
  • Demonstrable experience with relevant MVC frameworks (Preferably Laravel)
  • Experience Developing APIs
  • Experience with Unit Testing/TDD
  • Experience working to SOLID principles
  • Knowledge of Typescript/Vuejs or the Statamic CMS would be a benefit


The company in question is a market leader not only in the solutions that they provide to their clients internationally but also the technology the work on and the environment they create. They aspire to create a relaxed environment where people can work on forward thinking technology solutions.
