    At the risk of turning this forum into a job board...

    I'm looking for a PHP / MySQL developer to join . I work on both client projects and self-commission projects / web apps. Yes, currently it's a one-person-company! This is for a permanent position in UK near Leamington Spa / Coventry.

    For client projects, knowledge of PHP MVC frameworks and RAD is essential. You will be working with frameworks such as Seagull, Zend, CodeIgnitor, Drupal, Wordpress and many others. Your role will be server-side development focused and you will work with other front end developers who will create javascript/html/css. Although your primary focus will be back-end development, a good knowledge of html/css/javascript will be beneficial and in all likelihood you will be comfortable with these languages.

    Internally commissioned projects are a little more experimental. There are currently two active sites:

    They integrate with APIs from sites like Facebook, Twitter, Flickr etc so you will need to have experience with using APIs and preferably oAuth.

    Most of your time will be spent coding PHP (5) and MySQL that will be delivered to thousands of people so good understanding of caching and performance techniques will be preferable. Linux/sys admin/apache configuration skill a big plus.

    For this role I am looking for someone with a passion for web development and programing, you do not need a huge amount of experience but you have to be interested in experimenting with code and familiar with the latest trends and techniques.
