Mid-level / Senior PHP Engineer

A big hello from the team at Compuco!

At Compuco we empower socially responsible organisations with the digital tools they need to build a better world.

As a data driven creative technology agency, we are passionate about helping membership, charitable and cultural organisations to streamline and reimagine the way they work so that they can focus on impact.

We are looking for a talented and experienced PHP engineer to work with us on a range of high impact open source projects for the not-for-profit sector.

Compuco is split into product teams. As a key member of one of these teams, you'll be involved in the entire development process, from the specification phase through to release. Your principal focus will be on developing new functionality as extensions and modules for projects using CiviCRM and Drupal (7 and 8), but there's a lot going on at Compuco so expect to be exposed to other technologies too! 

The platforms we build are business process focussed for the not-for-profit sector, so expect to be working on functionality to help support e-commerce, marketing and payment processing but with a not-for-profit fundraising twist.

We’re a very process-driven team and constantly seek to refine the way we work to ensure that we continue to deliver the highest quality service to our clients and to the sector as a whole.  We’re looking for someone with a “can do” attitude to join our growing team.

As a distributed company with an HQ in London and team members from all around the world, one of the things that makes working at Compuco special is the chance to meet, mix and learn from people from an amazing array of nationalities and cultures.
