DETAILS OF ROLE:
Job Title: Head Of Web Development
Manager: CTO
Compensation: Competitive Salary
Location: London
Duration: Permanent Only

ROLE SUMMARY:
Laundrapp is a truly unique environment. We mix convenience with high quality cleaning and since our successful launch in 2015, we’ve grown to over 50 towns and cities across the UK. Now, we’re ready to take on the rest of the world too.

We’re seeking a talented Head of Web Development to lead our back-end team by example. We use the Laravel framework and so vast experience with this is a must.

You’ll be responsible for all things server, including architecture, our sites and APIs, our real-time driver routing technology, server performance, security and up-time.

We’re still a young startup and we need someone who thrives in such an environment. You need initiative, new ideas to bring to the table and the ability to solve the technical challenges of the business.

You’ll gather requirements and guide the business on the best technical route, but you won’t be afraid to push back on unrealistic goals. You’ll define and delegate programming tasks to your team.

This role is also very much hands on, so you’ll be a seasoned PHP developer with an active involvement in open source communities. We want to hear your opinions on GitHub issues or, even better, a pull request.

With a deep understanding of object-oriented programming and software patterns, you’ll define and maintain the solid architecture of the Laravel application. Ultimately you’ll define the future of our technology platform.

SKILLS / EXPERIENCE:

  • 2+ years Laravel development experience with completed sites as examples
  • 5+ PHP/MySQL development experience
  • 3+ front end web development experience, HTML/CSS, JQuery/AJAX/Javascript and frameworks such as Backbone / Bootstrap / Compass
  • 10+ years programming experience
  • Knowledge and experience of authentication (OAuth), billing (Stripe), email (Mandrill / Mailchimp), queues (Beanstalkd) desirable
  • Strong understanding of GIT version control
  • Demonstratable leadership and vision in managing projects and people
  • Experience in a position with similar responsibilities and of working in high paced start ups
  • Open to direction, collaborative work style and commitment to get the job done
  • Great communication skills and clear spoken English

Please send CV and covering letter direct to jobs@laundrapp.com
