We are looking for an experienced PHP developer, who prefers working with backend technologies. Most of what we do is backend (95%) and frontend is for internal use only. Soif you prefer working in backend but don't want to completely forget about frontend technologies, this is an offer for you! We are building a new team, in which developers have real influence on used technologies.
