Who we are: Fancy joining us?

Have you got the skills and experience? Passionate about the latest technology? Fancy joining the Pentangle team?

We’re always interested in chatting to new people who would like to join the team. We pay competitive salaries and offer a range of perks including remote working, part-time roles, parental leave and more.

Expanding our development team is a priority, particularly with those who have PHP skills or some experience with WordPress. That said we’re a technology company, so always looking for the next big thing (in fact we should put that in the job description!), so if you have a passion for technology, improving businesses and want to work in a relaxed, informal team environment, get in touch.

 

PHP Laravel Developer

Job Description

Pentangle Technology are looking for a PHP developer to join our growing team. We’re looking for someone who can work independently on smaller projects and as part of a team on larger ones.

Primarily you will be working on our applications but sometimes we’ll need you to help with a CMS or similar.

Required skills:

  • Experience building apps using the Laravel framework
  • The ability to write good clean HTML.
  • Be able to build simple JS interactions.

Desirable:

  • Some experience with WordPress/Statamic/Craft/Codeigniter etc
  • Knowledge of Git workflows
  • Understand or have implemented TDD
  • Knowledge of APIs (and preferably experience building them)

Who we are

Our team are excited by the possibilities of technology across all kinds of platforms (not just web) and how we can apply them to our customers and products.

We also get excited about films, music, board games, motorsport, documentaries and the latest series on Netflix (there is certainly some level of healthy disagreement between team members on these!)

After work we love a good quiz night, escape room or perhaps a trip to the cinema but we don’t do enforced corporate fun.

We’re flexible about how, when and where you work as long as the job gets done and our customers stay happy. We want you to keep learning and grow so budget is available for conferences and training.

Our offices are in Thame in Oxfordshire and once you’re up to speed remote working options are available.

What we do

We host, manage and build WordPress sites for a myriad of customers.

We build Laravel and Codeigniter apps to help our customers run their businesses in ever more efficient ways.

We also build our own suite of apps including a Volunteer management system (used for one of the biggest sporting events in the UK), an app for the self storage industry and a few others that are bubbling under the surface desperate for you to come and sprinkle some magic on.

Whilst your primary job role would be focusing on building and maintaining apps occasionally we might ask you to help with a WordPress plugin build or perhaps attend a client fact finding workshop. We like our staff to have involvement across the whole business.

What we offer

  • Flexible working opportunities such as working around school pickups or part time
  • Remote working
  • A competitive salary
  • 20 days holiday plus bank holidays
  • Learning and conference budget
  • Regular days/evenings out
  • A relaxed work environment
  • Choice of Mac or PC

Despite our list of wants if this sounds like the opportunity for you but you are missing out on a few bits please apply. We are looking for an individual who fits our team with “some” experience, the details matter far less than the person!

Full-time or part-time?

We’re interested in finding the RIGHT person. If childcare means you can’t work a 37.5 hour week speak to us we’d be happy to look at school hours options and so on!

We aren’t in a rush and want to wait for just the right person so PLEASE NO RECRUITERS!

Job Types: Full-time, Part-time, Permanent

Salary: £25,000.00-£35,000.00 per year – It;s a wide range as we’re looking for people who are perhaps stepping up in their role or maybe fancy a change of scenery from an existing role.

 

At the moment we don’t need to hear from any agencies, but feel free to send us CV’s of exciting people who you think fit the bill.

Reliable, approachable, cost effective, straight talking

Whether you are just starting out in business and need help getting going or you are an established brand looking to take your sites and services to the next level our team can help you find the right solution for you.  We’ll talk to you in plain English and help you understand exactly what you need.
