Web Services Application Developer

Web Services Application Developer

Do you want to have a hand in developing products and services that are disrupting the mobile carrier industry in both Canada and the USA? Roam Mobility is an innovative thinking, fast growing successful start-up with an independent spirit, and with a goal to eliminate high cost roaming services to Canadians and delivering instant and affordable cellular access with its brand Ready SIM for Americans.

Roam Mobility was recently recognized by a leading telecom publication Fierce Wireless as part of its Fierce 15 for 2013 due to its innovative business models and strong growth.

We are a well-established and growing business and have a need for a like-minded developer to help us deliver on our promise of affordable roaming.

You will need to be an experienced developer with an understanding of e-commerce, the mobile industry and be comfortable with multi-tiered application development. You will be working on a LAMP stack, making and receiving web service API calls from a number of back end systems using a variety of protocols (REST, SOAP, etc.) Our current system is an e-commerce front-end (Magento), with a PHP middleware system that integrates with back-end provisioning systems. The job initially is to enhance functionality, deliver new services and maintenance of existing code. However, our growth has us looking at possibly building a new system for the future.

We are a small team so you will have to be independent and a problem solver. Working remotely is cool with us as long as you are available to come into the office as need arises.

We offer a competitive salary, casual environment, but an aggressive attitude toward succeeding and making a difference.

Other desirable skills:

• Zend, Yii or similar PHP web application frameworks
• mobile network development (SMS aggregation, billing, etc.)
• message queuing
• the normal suspects in web development (HTML, CSS, Javascript, JQuery)
• modern dynamic web development (rails, django, or node.js)

If you think you've got what it takes, send your resume to careers@roammobility.com with a cover letter explaining why you want to work here and why we should hire you.
