About you...

We're looking for a PHP developer experienced in Magento (preferably versions 1 and 2)

Advantec is one of the South’s best-known digital agencies – with a growing team and impressive list of clients. We have a friendly, enjoyable working environment with excellent benefits, plenty of opportunity for career progression – and the chance to work on some exciting, high-profile and successful digital campaigns.

PHP / Magento Developer

Purpose of the role

We’re looking for an experienced developer to join our growing specialist Magento-Certified team. You’ll be involved in the development and support of high-profile Magento ecommerce sites, ideally across the ‘full stack’ – front-end, back end and the development and integration of modules on Magento Community and Enterprise editions.

Your Experience

Experience working across the Magento platform is essential – ideally including Magento 1, 2, Community Edition and Enterprise (although the latter is not an essential requirement). You’ll also ideally have experience with…

  • Multi-store and multi-language configuration
  • Ability to develop and extend the Magento API
  • An understanding of ERP / stock management systems would be highly beneficial
  • Experience with version-control systems such as Subversion / Git  / Bitbucket is desirable
  • Competence with PHP and MySQL
  • A working knowledge of JavaScript and related frameworks (e.g. JQuery, Knockout, Prototype and ES6)
  • An understanding of the technicalities of web server hosting – including Linux, Apache,  RHEL and Nginx
  • Experience with any other content management systems would also be beneficial
  • Official Magento certification would be beneficial (though not essential, as we’ll support you in achieving this in the role if necessary)

Personal Characteristics

A willingness to learn and develop technical skills is important – as is perseverance with problem-solving. A commitment to a high standard of work, attention to detail and perfectionism is also important.
