Senior PHP developer

Senior PHP developer

At Boozt we work in small cross functional teams of up to six developers in a big community. In total we are 170 developers spread across 5 locations. At Boozt, a high standard of code is important, which we manage through the latest technology stacks, internal code reviews and sharing knowledge through hackathons, conferences and weekly talks. Here we love to develop, not only the code but also ourselves as developers!

At we have 2 millions active users, to be able to give the full customer experience we have an advanced infrastructure with over 20 systems that we have developed on our own. Due to the many users there is a lot of complexity regarding information and data flow, which of course creates exciting programming problems to solve.

Our Warehouse Management System is one example of all the impressive stuff we are doing. With this system our main responsibility is to control the largest AutoStore installation in the world, having 673 robots at the given moment, operating with more than 700 000 bins. This is being expanded yearly following the growth of the company.

Today we have a good base of senior, mid levels and junior developers. It is therefore a flexibility within Boozt regarding where you want to go in your career. Do you want to evolve towards a tech lead position, a team manager role or if you want to continue as a senior backend developer? It is all possible here.

  • Development and maintenance in PHP, using the Symfony framework.

All our systems are deployed in the Google Cloud Platform. We have adopted Terraform for all the configuration and management of the infrastructure, no manual ad-hoc changes are being done. We are using a mix of Compute Engine, App Engine, Cloud Functions, and Kubernetes to deploy our systems, depending on their needs and characteristics. Current plan is to go more towards Kubernetes, we are in the process of containerizing more of our applications. Cloudflare is being used for CDN, authentication, and canary deployments among other things.

The majority of our systems are written in PHP using the Symfony framework. Among other languages that we are using are Elixir, Go, Python, TypeScript, Kotlin, Swift. For the data layer we have a mix of MySQL, Redis, Elasticsearch, MongoDB, Manticore. We try to be pragmatic and pick the technology that suits us best for the specific task. Cross-system communication is happening over Google Pub/Sub and RabbitMQ.

Observability is something we put a lot of focus on. We are actively monitoring the health of our infrastructure and applications using Datadog. We use it to get a good overview of the errors, make sure that deployments are not affecting performance, make sure that the SLOs are not over the limit, investigate and collaborate during major outages.

  • Experience from working with PHP frameworks, Laravel or Symfony is a plus.
