Full Stack PHP Developer – Analytics Tools

Marketplace is building a new team that focuses on tools for data visualization and interaction. Why? Marketplace brings demand and supply together, by ensuring we show users the right offers and by enabling advertisers to run efficient campaigns. Power of Proof is what we live and breathe; we are a team of data nerds. Now, we are searching for some full-stack developers to add some sex appeal, and to:

  • be the independent source for Marketplace to create the best analytics tools around.
  • make data beautiful.
  • brainstorm and develop innovative ways to understand + interact with data, to generate and validate hypotheses.
  • find ways to monitor and evaluate existing Marketplace products.
  • use the cutting-edge tech stack and loads of data in Marketplace as your playground.
  • collaborate closely with our teams of top-notch data scientists and algorithm engineers.

What you’ll definitely need:

  • Strong PHP, JavaScript and HTML/CSS experience.
  • A creative mindset that doesn’t know the meaning of the word impossible.
  • Enthusiasm – this is a brand new team!
  • Work experience in Software Engineering and/or Web Development.

What we’d love you to have:

  • Guru-level knowledge: You have hands-on experience with databases (hive, impala, SQL) and data analysis languages (R, Python).
  • Passion for data visualization: Checking /r/dataisbeautiful a few times a day is a good sign
  • The right mindset: Your standard sentences could be: “I get what you need to understand and found a cool way of doing it. Shall I implement a prototype for you?”
  • Love for all analytical: You already thought data science was sexy when it was still called statistics.
  • Interest in a new challenge: You’ll help create a new team and drive your vision.
  • A bachelor’s in Software Engineering: might look good on your CV?
