Laravel developer

We are looking for a skilled back-end Laravel (freelancer) developer to join forces with. We are a small team and are working fully remote. As a member of our team, you will be invited to work whenever and wherever you’re happiest and most productive.

The project

We are working on a large, ambitious e-health platform providing services and tools to users in order to get in shape or live a healthy life. We’re currently focusing on employees of various businesses, but will be expanding to a broader consumer-based audience in the future.

Tech stack

At the moment our tech stack is pretty straightforward and working really well:

  • PHP 7.2
  • Laravel 5.7
  • MySQL 5.7
  • Redis
  • PHPUnit 7.4
  • Yarn
  • Vue
  • TailwindCSS

We’re also huge fans of:

  • Eloquent
  • Horizon
  • Telescope
  • Vagrant / Valet
  • GitHub (with git-flow)
  • Envoyer
  • Forge
  • Slack
  • And any useful open-source package

As we’re updating our packages almost daily, we’re always using cutting edge software where possible. In that light, we’ll soon be upgrading to PHP 7.3 and MySQL 5.8 to keep that spirit going.

Coding philosophy

Our approach to this particular project is highly modularized and somewhat opinionated, but necessary to maintain an organized structure. Each groupable section of the project is built as an internal, individually namespaced module. Each piece of functionality is usually contained in its own dedicated class and used interchangeably. On a technical level, this results in heavy use of single-action controllers (request handlers), an event-driven system, and reusable jobs.
From the start, we’ve also put a strong emphasis on no-nonsense, readable, maintainable code. As it’s a rather large codebase with lots of different aspects, organization from the start was quintessential to ensure the code’s viability going forward. Especially for vital parts such as the various third-party API integrations, custom stores, and stress-free payments.

Requirements and offer

  • At least 2 years of hands-on experience with PHP, Laravel, and its ecosystem (experience with Vue is a big plus)
  • You value code quality and readability
  • You know when and how to write tests using PHPUnit
  • You can commit your code using Git and git-flow
  • Proficient in English (and preferably Dutch too)
  • You’re a motivated freelancer
  • Readiness to work alongside and with others
  • You can clearly voice your opinion, give constructive feedback, and handle it too
  • You’re a fast learner and willing to work with cutting edge open-source software
  • You can work fully remote on your own terms
  • You’re available for short and/or long term collaboration
