We’re hiring a talented Senior PHP Backend Engineer who wants to build ambitious products using modern technologies. At Mobile Jazz, we work with worldwide innovative brands, focusing on projects that make a positive impact and have strong potential.

Additionally, we ask for:

  • Highly experienced in using Git.
  • A professional level of English (both written and spoken).

Your role in context:

  • Proposing and implementing high-tech, innovative solutions.
  • Proactively communicating with colleagues and product owners to refine application design.
  • Actively participating in the whole process of development, from initial design to deployment and support.

  • Assisting your colleagues in achieving their goals.
  • Contributing to the overall open-source project of Mobile Jazz.

  • Location: Remote position. Most of the team is +-3h from European time zones. Therefore, it is easier to work with people living close to Europe. Many of us travel or live elsewhere without issues.
  • Salary: Ranging from 55k€ to 68k€ depending on your experience.
  • Hours: Full-time position (40h/w). We’re flexible to accommodate a different dedication if desired.
  • Schedule: Fully flexible. Up to you to decide when to work.
  • Holidays: 31.5 days / year (21.5d of holidays + 10 bank days).
  • Extra time-off: Up to 48d/year of unpaid time off on top of regular holidays. 
  • Events: 1w/year fully paid in a hotel for a team event (if covid allows it), one long weekend/year fully paid for you and your family for a summer camp event, worldwide workstation events (rental of the house paid by the company).
  • Benefits: Up to 2k€ every 3 years to renovate your laptop (belonging to you).

At Mobile Jazz, you will have the opportunity to grow your skills. You will work hand in hand with engineers who are passionate about technology and actively collaborating in the open-source world.
