  • Building self-service tools using PHP to aid less-technical support teams in resolving customer issues

What is needed:

  • Experience with ORM frameworks a plus (i.e., Doctrine, Eloquent, ActiveRecord)
  • Ability to quickly identify, diagnose, and troubleshoot issues within web applications
  • Customer focused problem solving & communication skills
  • Writing automated tests a plus
