Who we are

We are a student accommodation marketplace and SaaS solution built with Gen Z in mind. We aim to empower students and young people with a fast, smooth and secure booking experience through our platform.

The role

We are looking for experienced PHP Engineers to work alongside our talented (and growing!) Engineering team.

As a Senior PHP Engineer, the purpose of this role is to add more experience to the current engineering team and take an active role in mentoring and developing more junior engineers.

We want to continue to build an empowered and diverse team who are at the heart of making our marketplace a delight for students around the world. So if you're a curious learner, a challenger and a keen solution-finder, we want you on our team!

Tech Stack

  • 3+ years experience using PHP ideally with Laravel or other MVC framework (zend /synfony etc)
  • A thorough understanding of software design patterns
  • Working with MySQL databases and API integrations
  • Our front end is built with React and Typescript an understanding would be nice but not essential

Our Perks

We are a purpose-driven and values-based startup scaling rapidly with a non-corporate atmosphere.

  • Flexible working hours: We believe that everybody is different, and only you know better when you can be more productive. Hence, you can work in the way that brings out the best in you, whether you're an early bird or a night owl.
  • Hybrid working: We are a remote-friendly company with 1-2 days a week in office.
  • Technology: Your choice of Mac or Windows laptop.
  • Holidays: We offer 26 days of holidays in addition to bank holidays.
  • Birthday off: We love celebrating birthdays by giving you a day off on your birthday, so you can spend time with your loved ones.
  • Learning & Development: We believe in growth and development. Therefore, you will have dedicated time and access to industry-leading resources to help you hone your skills and succeed at your job.
  • Pension: We match 3% of your salary into your pension pot to help you save for your future.
  • Progression: We are scaling up quite rapidly, which means you will have many progression opportunities. We will also help you along the way to grow both professionally and personally.
