Sr. Full Stack/Backend Engineer/PHP (Remote)

Seattle, WA

We’re working with one of our favorite long term FinTech clients on a major infrastructure and re-engineering project.   We’re seeking a Senior Full Stack or Backend PHP Engineer with experience in microservices, Kubernetes, demonstrated professionalism, and the ability to effectively manage a complex, evolving workload. The ideal candidate is organized, accountable, self-motivated, well-versed in a variety of languages, proficient in PHP, comfortable in an AWS environment, and has experience with Kubernetes.


This position (which can be performed 100% remotely) requires a grasp of the big picture, a high sense of ownership of the problems, focus on managing and resolving issues in alignment with objectives, great communication with stakeholders, and the hands-on expertise to implement designs, make changes on production systems, and proactively escalate issues. 


In this role, you will be responsible for key improvements to a mission-critical financial services platform for a fast-scaling global company, including design and implementation within a containerized AWS environment.  This will require close collaboration with a small team of engineers to come up with strategic solutions to problems. 


Required Skills and Experience

  • 2+ years’ recent experience with PHP

  • 2+ years’ recent experience with Kubernetes

  • 7+ years’ overall experience in software development, in scaled modern shops

  • Significant experience with MySQL or Amazon RDS/Aurora

  • Ability and desire to quickly learn new systems

  • Ability to work with multiple teams in an effective and collaborative manor

  • Ability to relate complex technical problems to non-technical business stakeholders.

  • Excellent communication and documentation skills


We pay very competitively and have excellent healthcare and other benefits. This is a consulting opportunity, which may be performed 100% remotely, likely to last 6+ months, with the possibility of extension and conversion (if desired).  This is a remote opportunity, recruiting within the US only. Unfortunately at this time we are not able to provide sponsorship for employment and request no agency submissions. Thank you!
