Job description:


dotmailer is a leading marketing automation platform with email at its core. Our mission is to empower marketers with the tools that make it easy to get dramatic results, every time. Our platform is loved and used in every corner of the world, with 70k+ customers and well established in 3 continents.

We're one of the few Magento Premier Technology Partners and our extension enables a seamless integration between a customer's store and the dotmailer platform. We have offerings for M1 and M2 and you can check the code out on our public github here: The extensions are hugely important to the company and responsible for a large proportion of dotmailers revenue. They are loved by customers such as Paul Smith, Fred Perry and Paperchase.

We're looking for a talented PHP developer, hopefully with some great Magento experience. You’ll be comfortable in a LAMP environment and have several years of commercial experience. You’ll help us build and support the extensions, they are an established codebase that requires some growing up. We've recently got a barebones CI pipeline implemented which runs a multitude of tests that Magento provides to ensure extension quality. There's a lot of other things on the roadmap and that's where you come in!  

You'll join one of our agile teams and be responsible for implementing new features in the extensions. We like people that get their heads stuck into the code but the ideal candidate will realise that once released, their job's not quite done. As the extension is installed on customers’  Magento sites we need people who have top notch communication and are able to liaise with support staff and other stakeholders to resolve issues when they inevitably crop up. To help you with this you'll get a quad core i7 laptop, 16gb of RAM, dual screens and a spacious desk. We also provide training, from internal bitesize courses to Magento certifications.

We have offices all over the globe and you'll be working on the 20th floor of the iconic No.1 Croydon building right by East Croydon station. It's 20 minutes from central london and 40 minutes to the south coast. It has a great local pub and Box Park right on its door step. We work hard but like to enjoy ourselves too. Regular foosball matches, lunches (paid for!) every other Friday and pub trips are the norm.

If you think you'll fit in then send over your CV and any of your code examples or github repos and we'll be in touch
