PHP Web Developer (mid level)

We are seeking a confident and skilful PHP programmer to join our growing team in our Guiseley (or Keighley) office. You will soon be managing your own projects, and therefore require good communication, analytical and testing skills.

your role:

You will be a member of the team from day one, and will share the workload. There are a variety of project opportunities, but we would ask you to learn all about one or two of our major systems, so that you would be able to assist development and ongoing support. As this is a mid position, we would expect you to be fee-earning from the start, however, we understand that it’s important to keep abreast of technology, and we would encourage you to take a little time out to do this.

You will soon have your own customer projects, and must have the confidence to speak directly to clients to discuss requirements and progress and also offer support. It also may be necessary to meet clients, and in some cases our clients’ clients.

We would normally require you to work in our office in Guiseley (although if Keighley is closer to you then this is possible), and there may be some flexibility over your hours of work. We dress casually in the office except when meeting clients, and welcome you to do the same.

Subsequent to any probation period you would be entitled to join the company’s private health care scheme as well as our generous pension plan.

Due to the nature of some of the clients we work with, you will be required to enter into a non-disclosure agreement immediately upon starting work.

about Intrica:

intrica is a small friendly company, currently just seven full time staff based in our Guiseley office, and two at Keighley. We have close links with a second company based in Doncaster with whom we share clients, work and expertise.

intrica provide web site design services, but we specialise in larger web development projects. Some of our clients are small web designers who need bespoke programming services for their clients, and some are large companies and Universities outsourcing their web development to us.

In addition to our programming services, we host clients’ sites on our own Linux servers which we also manage ourselves. We also resell domain names, certificates and other cloud based services.

Our unique Selling Point is our reputation for excellent quality and support – and we don’t just say it, we do it! We have not advertised for many years as our new customers normally find us through recommendation or repeat business.
