LAMP Developer

We are not actively hiring for the LAMP developer position, but we are always open to meeting new developers in case something opens up. Get a hold of us! 

Heres the thing. We arent currently hiring. But when we do, this is what we look for in our LAMP (mostly all PHP) developers:

In addition to the server-side language, we need someone who loves to code and knows HTML, Javascript, CSS, and jQuery.

We need someone who can take ideas and turn them into clean, solid code. Someone who can grasp the big picture while still getting the details right. Someone who can turn out great websites without losing their sense of humor. You’re out there. We know it.

Essentials

  • Install, configure, and manage (mostly PHP-based) website frameworks and projects
  • Build projects in a variety of content management systems
  • Document and version-control your work
  • Develop and maintain well-documented, reusable, and modular code
  • Maintain current skills and industry best-practices
  • Be accountable for tasks, track time, and keep team members in the loop
  • Strong oral and written communication skills with both teams and clients

Bonus Points

  • High level of comfort using git alongside other developers, including deployments and code reviews
  • Understanding of issues involved in reliably deploying optimized websites from git code repositories

Experience with agile methodologies is a plus, and we’d like to see some experience working in a team, and all the technologies that entails (source control, continuous integration and build deployment, etc.). However, we’re willing to train to some extent, so if you know web development but can’t check every box on the list, no problem.

The Ground Rules

First, we need on-site, full-time employees to work in our Sioux Falls office. We feel the need to stress this point, because no matter how many times we say it, 90% of inquiries we get are from outsourcing firms.

Second, we want someone who absolutely loves this business. Client work can get hectic, and you really need to love web design and development as much as we do. If you’re the kind of person that gets pumped up over great code and elegant design, then you’re the kind of person we want to talk to.

Blend pays competitively for experience. Positions include three weeks paid time off, a health plan, disability insurance, a retirement savings plan, and a fantastic work environment. To view our office and learn a little more about our culture at Blend, visit our Flickr Photostream.
