Department Overview
VaaS, a “video analysis as a service” company, is a leading global provider of data and image analytics for vehicle location.

Job Description

The Security Innovation Team is looking for an experienced software engineer to help execute innovative data fusion solutions. These next-generation solutions are brand new or hybrids from our existing product lines across facial recognition and license plate recognition. You need to be scrappy, flexible, and unafraid of never-before-seen challenges. We are also looking for someone with future leadership potential and is interested in growing into that role.

Hello, reader of this job posting! Because you actually clicked into this, we’re going to assume you're a solid PHP developer, experienced the new (Laravel/Symfony, composer, PSR, etc) and familiar with the old (PEAR, Smarty, pre-OOP, pre-MVC). Please allow us to quickly add some keywords so this posting will be optimized for search engines: big data, PHP, MySQL, SQL Server, Linux, AWS, REST-based API, remote, work from home, git, security, rock star, guru, Jedi, ninja, wizard, Jedi rock wizard.

Great! Now let’s talk about some of those as they relate to this position.

  • Big Data – VaaS is the world leader in license plate recognition and currently has more than 15 billion (with a B) rows of license plate and geo-spatial data.
  • PHP – We love PHP. We know it has a bad reputation due to a long history of ugliness – and trust us when we say we have experienced it first-hand. However, it has matured greatly over the past few years and it has allowed us to rapidly prototype, develop, and deploy some amazing applications. We love Laravel and composer, and we have PHP 7 in production.
  • SQL – Yeah, it’s weird to have PHP connect to SQL Server. And as a PHP developer, you may not have the strongest grasp on SQL Server and all of its idiosyncrasies. But we’re available to help walk you through it.
  • Linux – Even though we run SQL server, our web servers are fully Ubuntu.
  • AWS - We don’t need a server guru, but familiarity with setup and management would be great.
  • API - We have lots of systems that interact with each other and we use APIs to accomplish that. You should know how to both create and consume API resources.
  • Remote – Let’s dispel with the myth that remote developers can kick their feet back and play Xbox. If you’ve spent any time working remotely, you know the challenges and determination it takes to make it work. We work hard from 8 to 5 and want a developer that will do the same without needless distractions.
  • Git – We do everything in git and have some great deployment workflows built around it.
  • Security – Stop here if you have no idea what OWASP Top 10 is. If you aren’t familiar with how to secure your code against SQL injection, XSS, and CSRF, then we can’t bring you aboard.

Requirements:

  • 4+ years of PHP development experience

Basic Requirements
  • 4+ years of related experience
  • Bachelor's degree or equivalent experience

Travel Requirements
None
Relocation Provided
None
Position Type
Experienced
