Senior PHP (Laravel) Developer

NOTE: This is a full-time, remote, long-term position at a product-based company, accommodating time zones across Europe, Africa, and South/Central/Western Asia.

The Interaction Design Foundation (IxDF) is a leader in UX and UI design education and our reputation is built on high-quality courses and masterclasses that set the bar in the industry. Our goal? To revolutionize the standard for UX learning worldwide. That's why we're on the lookout for a Senior PHP Developer whose skills match the excellence of our educational materials. If you're inspired to take online education to new heights and eager to make a meaningful impact, we're excited to meet you.

Here, you’ll never have to advocate for the importance of investing in code quality—our founder is a coder himself, and our elegant code is the vein that keeps the IxDF healthy and growing. You’ll work on stimulating projects in a healthy, collaborative environment where your ideas and time are valued. You’ll be involved in decision-making processes, which means there are incredible opportunities for you to take initiative and grow here. In fact, it’s encouraged! 

This is a rare opportunity to work exclusively with senior-level PHP devs in a diverse, highly organized, result-driven environment where you can thrive personally and professionally

About the Project

Our Dev Team is dedicated to enhancing our primary product: a web application hosting online courses, masterclasses, and community tools. Started in 2013, we've consistently improved code quality, features, and test coverage, achieving nearly zero legacy code or technical debt. How? Through our rigorously refined IxDF UI Kit and JavaScript conventions for the front end, and steadfast IxDF PHP and Laravel conventions for the back end. Our CI is highly automated with tools like Psalm (max level), PHPStan (max level), Rector, PHPCS, PHP-CS-Fixer, Deptrac, phpcpd, ESLint, etc.

The Stack You Will Work On

What You Will Be Doing

You'll collaborate with senior developers, UI/UX designers, content and product leads, and our founders. Your main responsibilities will be to:

  • Write maintainable and clean back-end code, including our open-source packages.

  • Engage with cross-functional teams to refine specifications for new features and enhancements.

  • Maintain up-to-date documentation for all developed and modified code (MD + mermaid.js).

  • Consistently expand test coverage using PHPUnit and cypress.io, with a preference for TDD.

  • Proactively engage in refactoring processes to reduce technical debt, aiming for an optimal developer experience.

  • Review peers' code submissions, utilizing PR reviews as a knowledge-sharing and problem-solving tool.
