Senior Software Developer

Talent Army

Senior Dev role working on a very large piece of software with part-remote and flexible hours available.

  • Palmerston North-based
  • PHP and/or Java
  • Financial/Banking sector
A friendly, kiwi software house who are really punching above their weight out of Palmerston North, Manawatu is expanding their team and looking for a Senior PHP Developer to join them. You’ll be part of a small but very stable team with strong independence and the ability to get involved in architecture, infrastructure and hands-on code with an experienced team of devs. You’ll be working on a range of projects for international and NZ clients with a focus on larger applications and builds rather than website builds. 

What will I need? 
We’re looking for an engineer, someone who can solve problems with technology, understand the challenges and produce great code in response. You’ll have strong full-stack experience with a PHP and/or Java or open source background, have worked at a senior level on larger web and digital applications, and bring effective hands-on skills along with the ability to see the bigger picture and address architectural decisions. Tie all that with good communication skills to work with your dev team, stakeholders, and external clients in a pretty well formed scrum/agile delivery and you’ll be in great shape.

Where will I be going? 
You’ll be part of a friendly, welcoming team in Palmerston North, working on some pretty in-depth technical projects across financial services and web based business SaaS solutions. They have a great reputation in their field, backed up by multi-year contracts with big players both on the local and international scenes. Working mostly in PHP/Java, with a touch of .NET and Java floating around, the team sets themselves apart with their quality of code, responsiveness and the independence of their dev team. They tend to pick up projects with responsibility for more complex and business critical build projects which are led by a sensible and progressive leadership team. The majority of your work will be greenfield or rebuild based, rather than endless bug fixes and little updates, so there will be plenty to get your teeth into. 

The team is small, but very stable and well looked after. You’ll be working in small teams and with all the creature comforts a dev needs, with good hardware, a welcoming workspace, and a grown-up, productive team dynamic supported by lunches and a strong level of trust. 

If you fancy getting out of the city or if you’re in the Manawatu / Palmy region, we’d love to have a chat. Please reach out to ben@talent.army for a chat.
