We are currently looking for a passionate, thoughtful and skilled PHP Developer (m/f) to join our Mobile Team.

Over 70% of ABOUT YOU’s traffic is coming from mobile devices. During peak times the API behind our App and Mobile Website handles thousands of requests per second for over half a million users per day. That means scalability, stability and speed are our top priorities to offer our customers the best possible experience.

Challenges on which the Mobile Team will be working in 2018:

  • Further improving speed, stability and scalability of the backend application
  • Providing a high level of user-specific personalization while maintaining low response times through smart caching
  • Incorporating further company-wide APIs into the application and running experiments to make shopping even more convenient

What you will do

  • Work closely together with experienced developers, product managers, QA, and designers to ship new components and features
  • Increase API performance by profiling the application and optimizing it in detail
  • Continuously improve test coverage and reliability
  • Monitor application health and react proactively if customer experience is impacted
  • Explore new technologies and learn from some of the best developers and specialists in the business
  • Have a direct impact on team processes by regular agile retrospectives

Who you are

  • You have several years of experience in building highly performant and scalable backend applications
  • You are very proficient in PHP and have a deep understanding of its basics
  • You have worked with Lumen, Laravel, Symfony or similar frameworks before
  • You have experience with application caches like Redis and HTTP caches like Varnish
  • You care a lot if an API call takes 50ms or 200ms
  • You possess good knowledge of relational and Key-Value databases
  • You write well-structured, efficient and maintainable code
  • You are adaptable and resourceful and you are able to develop effective solutions to problems
  • You have excellent analytical and problem-solving skills and can express your ideas
  • You love solving problems and achieving goals in a team instead of working just solitarily
  • You are used to working in an English speaking environment

What you will get on top

  • The new way of developing:
    • Open Structure: small teams with start-up spirit and hands-on mentality, chance to stay focused and specialize
    • Striving for Excellence: be an expert and take ownership of your work, possibility to take a lead developer role for a certain period, possibility to switch teams
    • Clarity is King: clear and transparent communication, learning from mistakes, celebrating success
  • Technology stack and methods based on an opinionated mindset
  • Free choice of IDE or OS
  • Free entry to one of Europe's largest Developer Conferences: code.talks
  • Brand new office in Hamburg’s city center
  • Attractive employee discounts in all our shops
  • A variety of additional benefits and employee services
  • Regular company events
  • Free Laracasts account
  • Language and yoga classes at no extra charge, fresh fruits daily and free drinks of all kind
  • Help in the Visa application and relocation process if needed

We are looking forward to receiving your application - preferably via our online application portal! Thus we can ensure a faster process and for you it is very easy to upload your application documents. :-)
