Job type: Full-time

Hiring from: US only

Category: Software Dev


Happy Cog is looking for a full-time PHP Web Developer to join our team immediately. We’re a growing interactive agency of 55+ people in Manhattan's Flatiron District with great clients (like Google, Airbnb, Twelve South, Etsy, The Associated Press, New York City, St. Regis, Columbia University, and WPP) and an incredible roadmap.

Our development projects are typically built on PHP and are often Laravel. You don’t need to know it to join our team, as long as you’re experienced with another modern framework (such as CakePHP, Zend, or another MVC- or SOA-oriented system). Given the range of work you’ll be doing you’ll never get bored. We need someone who loves keeping up-to-date on the newest advancements in the field and can figure out when to start applying those advancements to client work.

You’ll be a member of our development team, working closely with our other fantastic front-end and backend developers during every phase of your projects. You’ll also be communicating directly with clients and with our project managers to understand their requirements and present your work. Your job will be fun, challenging, and interesting.

You’ll be working on 2-3 projects at any time; typically one large application and a few smaller projects to keep things fresh. 

Responsibilities Will Include:

  • Building new applications, websites, and features with Laravel.

  • Contributing to high-level architecture planning, consulting with our internal team on approach and level of effort, directing more junior developers.

  • Flexing your muscles on aspects of application development outside of app code: database modeling, query optimization, setting up efficient logging and monitoring solutions, and other advanced requriements for highly functioning apps (you do not need to be a DBA or Sys Admin).

  • Working closely with our front-end development team on website projects. We’ll want and expect your input on the best ways to structure the build — from start to finish.

  • Staying up-to-date on the latest development technologies and methodologies.

Requirements

  • Previous MVC framework experience, Laravel is highly preferred.

  • Ability to understand user behavior and intent, and use this information to build intuitive apps and websites for our clients.

  • Knowledge of Git, we use it on all projects.

  • Experience with AWS services is a plus.

  • Experience with Raspberry Pi (or similar platforms) is a plus.

We offer:

  • A creative environment to do the best work of your career.

  • An amazing team of developers, designers, marketers, project managers, and the occasional four-legged office pet.

  • Lunch paid for by the company, every day, via your own Seamless/Stadium accounts.

  • Flexible hours.

  • Flexible paid vacation policy.

  • Health, Dental, and Vision insurance.

  • Retirement plan with company matching.

  • Perks and discounts from many stores and services-- cell phone bills, hotels, rental cars, gyms, etc...

    Last Call Media is looking for a developer to join our team! 

    Our team prides itself on being able to neatly stitch together contributed modules, Drupal configuration, and custom functionality to meet product requirements, and we often find ourselves pushing the envelope of what is technically possible. As a company, we are very active in the Drupal and web development communities, and enjoy making time for code contribution, public speaking, and socializing.

    As a developer at Last Call Media, you will be a part of the development process for many different types of web projects. You will be responsible for writing code, gathering requirements, participating in architectural discussions, and troubleshooting issues. You will learn from (and eventually teach) other developers, and engage with clients frequently. You will be encouraged to experiment with bleeding edge technologies and processes in order to find and share ways we can work faster and smarter as a team. Finally, you will be trusted to work with others to carry projects and tasks to completion and must be able to work with limited guidance and be willing to ask for help when you are stuck.

    Last Call Media is a fully distributed company so you can work from anywhere, but we ask that you be able to commit to at least 5 hours of overlap with New York time (ET) Monday through Friday. 

    Technical Requirements

    Must know, or have the confidence to learn:

    • Solid with the fundamentals (PHP, Javascript, HTML, CSS, and the LAMP stack)

    • Love version control (Git preferred)

    • Be comfortable on the terminal

    • Basic Docker/Docker Compose usage

    • Debugging/troubleshooting problems you’ve never seen before

    • Basic Drupal skills (configuration management, theming, and module development)

    Cultural Requirements

    Our ideal candidate would be:

    • Highly communicative

    • Able to work independently

    • Comfortable asking for help

    • Experienced with communicating with clients directly

    • Eager and motivated to learn new concepts

    • A team player in a collaborative environment

    • A fast learner

    • Able to communicate complex ideas clearly in English

    This position is compensated at a salary commensurate with skill and experience, with comprehensive benefits including an annual professional development budget, and varied, engaging work for enterprise-level clients. If this position already sounds like you or sounds like where you're headed, please reach out!
