Personality = often More Important Than Skills...
- You can approach tasks highly organized step-by-step

- Problem solving attitude, if you face a problem investigate it to solve the problem you are facing.

- Understand that nobody knows everything! It is ok if you don't understand something or are not able to find an answer to a problem! Throw the problem in the team and work together to find a solution. We're not looking for lonesome cowboy programmers but team players.

- Make sure your code is reliable and test it. Don't skim the job, be critical with your own work

- You are able to take constructive feedback, and learn from your mistakes.

- You take responsibility for your actions, and acknowledge your responsibility if you make a mistake. If you have made the wrong decision (you’ll quickly learn if you have), you will find praise in responding quickly to the situation – shortly after discovering it.

- You are an honest, hardworking and responsible person that loves your job.

- You speak, read and write good English and communicate clearly.

- You pay attention to details, always fully read instructions thoroughly and can follow workflows to the letter.

- When deadlines hit and pressure goes up (e.g. launching a product) you are there to stand your own and do what's necessary

The Magic Skills We're Looking For:

Huge extras: Laravel, CodeIgnitor, experience with MicroServices Architecture

- Working with databases You know how to write efficient MySql Queries (Join's; left, right, outer, IN, NOT IN, using index, keys, foreign keys) and have experience with NoSQL (MongoDB or others). Furthermore you also know how to optimize and test efficiency of queries.
Huge extras: Database design (normalizing), big data

- Javascript We need you to at least have a basic good knowledge of (Native) Javascript and jQuery.
Huge extras: Experience with any front-end frameworks. Let us know which!

- clean HTML5 + CSS Not mixing it up with PHP obviously. Not bloating your CSS sheets.
Huge extras: Experience with bootstrap

- Know how to work with GIT

And some other skills that will move you further on top of the list:

- Experience with big data & HA (we're trying to decide with databases to use for big ambitious main focus project)

- Setting up easy to replicate dev environments (either locally or in the cloud - we're looking to make it easier to switch dev environment to switch between projects and onboard new developers)

- You tell us :)
