Job Type




PHP7 Symfony4, weekly home office + family-friendly working hours, a high degree of freedom and autonomy to exercise your experience, central Koln city office location and English-speaking international colleagues.


These are just a few of the reasons PHP Engineers are choosing to join this start-up product company of 50 employees.


Here is an employment opportunity for a Senior / Lead Engineer who wants to feel they are making a real impact with their work. Naturally within a start-up business employees work beyond their job description, but not always with the freedom and autonomy they desire. This opportunity is different - here is a place with a truly flat hierarchy who welcome intuition and motivated people to execute their ideas how they want.


Of course this requires a truly flat hierarchy and a very healthy working environment, good communication and collaborative personalities. Fortunately all of these things exist in the working culture already. There really is no barrier to realising your software ideas.


As a 2 year old start-up operating in the world of legal technology innovations, there is huge opportunity. The legal services industry is enormously wealthy, with excessive funds available to re-invent itself and for ambitious businesses to disrupt how legal services are sourced, sold and delivered.


Why are we hiring?

For growth of course! Already this tech-product is highly successful in Germany and the Netherlands, but the future lies in Spain, France, Italy and many more European countries. Scaling the service and tech-product to this size required tremendous software engineering power. A Senior / Lead PHP Engineer in the team will help guide the projects to successful conclusions.


In addition to natural technology growth, we also want a Senior PHP Engineer who can bring some guidance to the people within the current software team. Either in the form of coaching and mentoring, or in improved development processes and code quality practices. We want a passionate Engineer to contribute more than great lines of code.


What are we looking for in a new Senior PHP Engineer colleague?

Let's start with the "hard skills" we would like an Engineer to bring with them:

  • 5+ years professional PHP coding experience, ideally recently with PHP7
  • Someone who loves the Symfony or Laravel frameworks (we are using Symfony4)
  • A fluent English speaker


We are also very selective about the personalities we introduced to what is currently a very collaborative and highly productive software team:

  • You should be a confident individual, able to communicate ideas and feedback clearly between your colleagues
  • You should have a burning desire to make an impact, to contribute your ideas and use the freedom and autonomy offered to create great things with PHP!
  • Whilst the working environment can be very quiet, you can have a dark room to yourself if you like, you should also be a social person outside of work. The team are a family who enjoy spending time with each other


In summary, this is a fantastic place to influence a great project. For a person who is currently lacking freedom to realise their software ideas or the autonomy to fix problems, this will be a breath of fresh air for you!


Apply with your full CV and contact details for immediate consideration, interviews will be hosted from June 4th onwards
