As a developer, I am

  • mostly specialized in PHP on the backend, but had contact with Angular too
  • fast learner, thorough, dependable

As a human, I am

  • a social person. I like all people (some I like to keep close, some I like to see from time to time and others I like to avoid)
  • known as a coffee lover, but not ashamed to be seen drinking the occasional beer after hours
  • in disagreement with the 'pay is not important' philosophy. Enjoying what you do is a nice bonus, but not the only important thing in the world :)

I'm looking for

  • friendly atmosphere aka human workplace
  • work from home
  • interesting projects built with non-ancient technologies (Symfony 5, PHP 8)
  • working as part of a team of people with strong technical skills
  • room for career advancement

I expect

  • decent equipment to do my work on (SSD, dual monitor setup, you know the drill)
  • all the necessary trainings to be able to do my job in the company
  • periodical reviews followed by results proportional to progress
  • no (unpaid) overtime or no overtime at all (I work better when I can disconnect)

Would be nice to have

  • flexible program
  • extra days off based on seniority
