Senior PHP Developer – Toronto

Comma Recruitment are looking for 5+ years experience as a Senior PHP Developer,  we need a product (and the supporting underlying architecture/infrastructure) that delivers real value to our users.  The Senior PHP Developer is the individual charged with shipping efficient, scalable code that brings this product to life.  This means:

  • Developing technical solutions, building new features/experiences/supporting architectures that create success for our users.
  • Making significant architectural decisions and implementing them to create a solid foundational core of our product.
  • Collaborating with the product, design, and sales & marketing team members to find the best technical solutions to our business problems.
  • Mentoring team members to help them to make informed decisions, to ship more effective code, and to grow as developers.

How the reporting structure works:

Reports to the Team Lead, Engineering; Individual contributor role (no direct reports)

Here’s what you need to be successful.

  • You are a seasoned developer with 5+ years of experience working in PHP (LAMP stack is a plus).
  • You are adept at systems and architecture design – you’ve developed complex applications in a team environment.  You have a strong understanding of MySQL databases and interacting with them through abstractions or raw SQL queries.
  • You’re well versed in agile engineering practices (testing, continuous integration, etc.)
  • You value ownership – when you run into bugs, you make sure they’re dealt with, rather than sweeping them under the rug.
  • You’re about solving real business problems (and not just writing code for the sake of writing code).

Nice to have skills that Comma Recruitment are also looking for, are experience or exposure to:

  • Hands on experience in eCommerce/Marketplace development for high-volume sites (experience with Magento, within the Zend framework is a plus).
  • You’ve grown with a company that’s scaled from small to large and understand the engineering requirements of an organization at each lifecycle stage.
  • You have experience in modern web technologies – JavaScript (React, Angular, Node.js)


What we offer.

We’re doing something big.

The platform and company we’re building has a real global impact, and you’re getting in early enough to play a material part in our success.  The work you will do has a direct bearing on our trajectory and performance as a company.

You’ll be surrounded and supported by some amazing people who are light on ego, high on curiosity, and are passionate about changing retail for the better.
