PHP developer needed for an exciting Symfony project (Remote & Oslo based)


We are looking for someone to help with the development of our core membership system. Candidates should be able to manage their own time and combine remote work with some office time at our Oslo location. The working language (documentation, tickets, project related discussions) is English, however Norwegian (and/or Swedish) is also highly desirable for some direct customer communications.

Ideally you would be able to lighten the load on the existing team in all areas, so the list of "desired" skills is quite long, however we are of course open to realistic proposals. Most important is to get another (full stack) developer on board, who can drive future development.

Core skills/experience
  • Latest Symfony & Doctrine - for moving forward with new development
  • PHP - Main working programming language (Object oriented, 5.6 and > 7.2)
  • First generation Symfony & Doctrine - for development & maintenance of existing system(s), parallel to future development
  • (Experience through the lifetime of Symfony is a is a huge plus, but not essential - any experience or minimum desire to learn)
  • Some design/UX (html/css/jQuery)
  • Some database interaction (PostgreSQL)
Other areas of work / nice-to-have skills/experience
  • Ability to talk to customers and discuss new functionality and ongoing issues
  • Wordpress, Drupal, Git(hub)
  • Ability to talk to potential customers, demo the system(s) and "sell" services
  • API (in particular JSON, JWT based)
  • Server-side tasks (Linux, Apache, basic scripting, etc.)
About the job

Most of our time is spent working through new feature requests and supporting the operations of organisations using the membership system. Work is mostly carried out remotely, using tools such as Slack for communication. We have an office location in Oslo for team meetups and closer contact with our Norwegian customers. The company head office (admin only) is based in Fredrikstad. We also travel to Stockholm around 3 times per year to maintain good contact with our customers there.

Going forward, we will be upgrading the membership system to make use of later versions of PHP and Symfony/Doctrine (Symfony 5, Doctrine 2 or 3). This will also involve a large focus on a modernised UI and full-blooded API.


Base salary will be based on experience and set at an industry-standard level - however as a small company with a stable customer base, the potential for a rewarding profit-share bonus model is extremely good. We also support open source contribution (where relevant, e.g. Symfony/PHP/etc.) and attendance at conferences around Europe. Working hours are extremely flexible, and a pension scheme will be discussed & arranged, as well as all the usual "perks" one would expect from a tech job (Laptop, home internet, phone, etc.)
