Job Description

Socious is seeking Senior PHP Programmers to continue the growth of our software platform which is redefining association management software. We expect someone who is eager to learn but is also excited to share their own perspective and knowledge to make our software incredible.

We highly value potential and drive, but we are also looking for candidates with experience using the technologies we use. We have a SAAS Web platform architected on some common technologies including PHP (object oriented using our proprietary framework) on Apache using Jquery and MySQL. We use Git for source control and we use PHPUnit to make our code more resilient. Jedi-like skill is not required; however, these are the technologies you will be working with on a day-to-day basis, so knowledge is power.

  • 3-7 years of hands-on coding experience with PHP and/or Javascript
