Posted 5 months ago - 148 views - 19 Applied

Vialma is searching for a PHP-Symfony developer. In this role, you will be part of making our product better using state-of-the-art techniques.

This is a remote position in a distributed team available from a location from GMT-1 to GMT+7. You can work from home, a coffee shop or the beach as long as your work is aligned with our goals. At Vialma, remote work is not only a perk, it is a culture that we nurture and maintain, favoring a good work/life balance for everyone.

We embrace diversity and inclusion and we are committed to build a welcoming place for all. If you belong to an under-represented group in tech, youll find a welcoming culture that thrives on diversity.

Whats the team like?

The Vialma tech team is an open-minded enthusiast group of 10 people working together from various places in Europe (UK, France, Armenia, Kosovo, Italy), Africa (Nigeria) and Asia (Viet Nam, India). One third of our development team are women and the total Vialma team of 24 counts14 different nationalities.

We make a product that meets both convenience and performance, with high-quality code, meticulous design and top processes. We work in a transparent and respectful manner, with regular contact with the CEO and the other teams. We limit the number of meetings to a reasonable amount (3 per week for developers) and adjust the processes in place when needed. The team owns the processes, not the other way around.

The Product Owner, the Project Manager and the CTO are partners who serve developers with the right tools and the right information at the right time: each teammate is empowered to make a big impact, with the help of others whenever needed. We have retro meetings where we can share good or bad experiences, for the purpose of continuously improving. From these meetings we list actions and track them. We dont ignore the refactoring tickets and work on them continuously while protecting the new features coming in.

You will report to the CTO, who will follow your progress and achievements on a regular basis in order to make your time at Vialma an enriching journey.

  • Flexible work time

Your key tasks for this position:

  • Transpose the product specifications to an actionable web product

  • Preserve high-quality code, refactor on the fly or advise for bigger refactoring
  • Work closely with other Symfony developers, perform code review, give and receive constructive feedback
