    About The Role

    As a Senior Software Engineer, you will work on a variety of consumer-facing apps. The ideal candidate should have expertise in Vanilla JavaScript, React, PHP, Laravel, MySQL, HTML, CSS, and Sass. Our backend, built on Laravel, supports multiple UI products. Client admin tools are developed using React and Shopify Polaris (a React component library). Our apps’ widgets/plugins are constructed using vanilla JavaScript to ensure minimal footprint, lower chance of conflicts with other code, and optimal performance.

    Our backend development primarily follows a Test-Driven Development (TDD) approach. While TDD experience isn’t mandatory, candidates should have some experience with writing tests, an understanding of TDD principles, and a willingness to implement TDD when working on backend functionality.

    • Expertise in Laravel (or similar framework), PHP 8, JavaScript, and MySQL
    • Proficiency in Object-Oriented Programming and design patterns

    • Experience with at least one modern UI framework: React, Vue, Angular
    • Experience with the AWS product line is advantageous
    • Experience with the Shopify API, or developing Shopify themes or apps is beneficial
    • Capable of independently researching, planning, and executing solutions
    • Excellent communication skills (written and verbal)
    • Availability to work a schedule of 10 AM to 7 PM CET, with flexibility for additional hours during high-demand seasons or urgent issues

    • Opportunity to build new features and apps for a leading player in the Shopify app space
    • Engagement with a cutting-edge code base
    • Contribution to an automatically-tested code base
