Open Positions (2)

Experienced PHP Developer
Added 6th Feb

Car and Classic are looking for a backend PHP developer to join our team and help build the world's best classic car website.

 

You'll be working, initially, with one other developer - with such a small team your impact is integral to our continued success.

 

The Role

You'll focus on ensuring Car and Classic runs smoothly for its advertisers, purchasers and dealers. You will help design & deliver features for our customers, while improving our legacy home-grown PHP codebase.

 

This role requires strong communication skills, alongside excellent PHP knowledge. You'll be given the autonomy and space to focus on your work, without micro-managing and pointless status updates.

 

You

You should be a detail orientated PHP developer who is always looking to improve and grow. You should be a self-starter able to manage your time and commitments.

 

Requirements
  • Experience working with legacy PHP projects
  • Experience with MySQL
  • HTML, CSS, JavaScript and jQuery
  • Effective communication skills - written and verbally
  • Passionate about improving our codebase as we go

 

Nice to haves
  • Ansible experience
  • Design or UX experience
  • Involvement with open source projects
  • Sysadmin experience

 

Personal
  • Self-motivated
  • Fluent in English, written and spoken
  • Proactive attitude
  • Proven track record of successful execution, learning and growing

 

Process

After an initial chat with our Lead Engineer all qualifying candidates will then be invited to complete a short paid development & review task, where you'll have the opportunity to see how we work and make sure you'll enjoy the job.

 

If all goes well you'll be offered a permanent position!

 

Our Company

Car and Classic is currently raising over £1, 000, 000 with its partner company Cazana, to be used to grow the company into a larger and international success. While currently Car and Classic is a 3 person team, we're working directly with Cazana and their experienced team of 20+ to reach our goals.

 

We already command the classic car classifieds market, being the largest classic car site in Europe, but our goal is to be the largest classic car site in the world.

 

Our day to day communication happens in Slack, we have weekly catchups and we're always around for a chat if needed.

 

 

Get to work on a website with millions of pageviews a month, with endless potential and you in the drivers seat.
