Everpress is a global fashion marketplace that connects consumers to unique & sustainable products from independent creatives.

We're looking for backend engineers to champion creativity, supporting grassroots creators while ending the waste in fashion. If you love creativity, sustainability, fashion or complex logistics(!) then this is the place for you.

Engineers at Everpress are involved throughout the product process, with lots of scope for influencing and defining what we build next. You won't just be trawling through lists of issues.

Our stack is PHP + Symfony with MySQL. It’s all hosted on the AWS stack, using ECS, S3, SQS, etc. We track errors with Sentry and use New Relic for performance monitoring and optimisation.

Key responsibilities include

  • Helping us build high-performance, easy to maintain, quality software. We’ve paid out over £4,000,000 to creators around the world and we’re growing quickly!

  • Exploring solutions to interesting problems with the product team, building prototypes and taking them through to release. We work closely with users and the team to make sure we’re solving the problems that will really help independent creators.

  • Owning your own technical roadmap. For example, improving build pipelines and deployments, performance optimisation, instrumentation. We’re constantly improving our infrastructure and development process.

Requirements

  • Working knowledge of PHP 7 and recent use of PHP frameworks – ideally Symfony
  • Comfortable with relational databases – ideally MySQL. Though we use Doctrine, there will always be SQL queries to write and optimise
  • Experience working with PHPUnit and integration tests. We don’t have high test coverage, but we’re looking to improve it in 2020

Nice to haves

  • An understanding of CI/CD pipelines
  • Experience working with applications at some scale. We have some big traffic spikes and are growing quickly
  • Experience using system monitoring tools (e.g. New Relic, Datadog etc) and automated testing frameworks
  • Some frontend experience. We use React and Marionette, it would be useful if you have some experience working with either

If you don't meet all of the requirements here, please still apply! We're always looking to hire and the team will be growing even more over the coming months. So if you're not the perfect fit now you could well be in the near future.
