Lead PHP Web Developer at Growing Eco Startup

Lead PHP Web Developer at Growing Eco Startup

ethicalDeal is looking for an experienced full stack PHP Web Developer to support our next phases of growth.

Why work at ethicalDeal?

ethicalDeal is a digital marketing platform for natural brands, reaching the largest community of health and eco shoppers. This year we won BC’s Top Online Marketer award. Our flash sales make it easy to try the latest natural products and our educational content inspires people to live a healthy lifestyle.

This year, we are taking it offline, moving into the innovative “clicks to bricks” space in the booming natural product market. This model will have our shoppers buying online and redeeming their digital coupons in­store. This model will disrupt the way natural brands market their products and how consumers discover natural products. After a successful pilot we’re excited about scaling our new market opportunity.

We are a small, efficient team; carving off new project every week and tackling them. We are proud to be entrepreneurial types that are more focused on achieving goals than just putting in the hours. Our office is based in the Gastown district close to public transit, other startups and yummy food.

The position:
Are you passionate about writing clean code, building lean products and solving challenging technical problems? Do you believe that user experience is a critical factor affecting product success?

As our developer, you will get to own a significant chunk of the ethicalDeal codebase and be innovative about how you solve business problems using tech. If you’re interested in making a huge difference at a growing startup, we want to hear from you!

● Work with the team to build great products like defining and developing Web and Point­Of­Sale API integrations for our retail partners, creating analytics dashboards to show marketing ROI for the brands we work with, building a shopping cart to improve the user experience and much more!
