Web Developer

Vertu House

Negotiable salary depending on skills and experience and Plus Company Benefits

Due to Vertu Motor's continued success and growth we are expanding our IT team with our What Car? Leasing business to ensure we continue to provide the best possible service to our internal and external customers.

We are looking for an experienced PHP/MySQL developer to join us and help drive and deliver new functionality and enhancements to our websites and intranet systems. This is an excellent and rare opportunity to join our team and build your future career with the fastest growing Motor Retailer in the UK.

Applicants will be expected to modify and document their changes in our custom backend system to allow for the day-to-day usage of both clients and members of our sales team. The role will also focus on developing front end webpages and changes to our websites requiring cross browser/device compatibility and validation on visitor facing forms.

Testing and documentation of amends as well as communication with other members of staff will be essential to your role in order to maintain stability across all aspects of our platform. Use of basic command line server management may occasionally be necessary.

The ideal candidate will be experienced with PHP and MySQL/MySQLi databases and require a workable and expandable knowledge of HTML, CSS and JavaScript for front end development. In addition, knowledge of Linux server management would be a definite bonus. Familiarity with software such as Adobe Creative Cloud would also be a bonus, however additional training can be provided.

While qualifications in the relevant areas would be beneficial, a portfolio of at least 2 years experience in the industry is essential. Also the ability to provide examples of both an ability to modify and adapt existing script as well as the potential for writing new systems from scratch will be key. We work with a bespoke set of in-house systems rather than utilising PHP frameworks, however experience in these may also be useful.

Irrespective of the role, the non-negotiable for any of our colleagues are, drive, character, attitude, energy and talent. Relevant IT experience is important to us, as can be seen by the responsibilities of the role, but is not sufficient on its own as you will need to demonstrate that you have used those attributes to achieve your goals in the past.

In addition to this you will also need to be self-motivated and passionate about everything you do.

In return, if you are successful you can look forward to a competitive salary, on-going training opportunities and a range of benefits you would expect from an employer of choice, including colleague purchase scheme, preferential service rates, share incentive plan, Vertu rewards and pension scheme. If you are interested in joining the most progressive team in the industry, please apply now.
