Back End Software Engineer

Irish Titan

Job Description

Full disclosure: This is not a “by the numbers” job, because we are not a “by the numbers” company. We are, however, the recipient of multiple Best Places to Work awards and nominations. But wait….there’s more!

We are a rapidly growing digital agency seeking a talented, driven individual to come along for the ride. We’re looking for someone to do more than just fit in; we’re looking for a Back End Software Engineer to make us better. Having the right personality is as important as having the right skillset. Culture is on a par with competence, and our culture is based on a combination of:

  • Business First, Online Second™ (Our “Why.”)
  • Partnerships, Not Transactions (Our “How.”)
  • POTIS (Just ask.)

Our developers are responsible for programming online platforms that bring to life our clients’ brand, vision and business purpose. The Back End Software Engineer will collaborate with project managers, solutions analysts, digital strategists, and other developers. The goal is to deliver scalable and reliable technology solutions that provide engaging user experiences and truly support business objectives. Those experiences will range from sophisticated and elegant ecommerce platforms to robust software-as-a-service platforms and beyond.

This work is at the core of our ongoing relationships with our clients. Every piece of value you deliver will directly contribute to their success and help those relationships thrive. Are you ready to make that kind of impact every day?

  • Produce documentation, as needed, including functional and technical requirements and user stories.

  • Familiarity with limitations of PHP as a platform and its workarounds.
  • Proficient understanding of code versioning tools, such as Git.
