PHP Developer, HTML, CSS and JavaScript

Salary: Competitive

WeGotTickets is the leading ticketing agency in the UK for small to medium sized venues and promoters; and works with thousands of venues and event organisers, selling close to a million tickets for music, comedy and arts events every year. We are based in Osney Mead, Oxford.

We are looking for a talented Web Developer with a passion for PHP and at least 3 years commercial experience using PHP, HTML, MySQL, CSS, JavaScript and jQuery. You will be working with a small tight-knit, talented development team creating high quality and functional code for our web products and applications.

The ideal candidate would have experience of Agile development methodologies including Test Driven Development, continuous integration and automated testing.

As well as PHP, HTML, CSS and JavaScript you will need the following:

  • Knowledge of working with git
  • Commercial developer experience
  • Organised and able to work to tight deadlines
  • Passionate problem solver
  • Strong communication skills
  • Confident, independent, pro-active, disciplined, self-motivated, honest, open and flexible

What's in it for you?

As this is an integral role for the company, previous hands on development experience and the ability to hit the ground running is crucial.

We manage our own infrastructure so any System Administration experience in the provisioning, installation/configuration and maintenance of systems hardware (using tools such as Puppet) and software would be desirable but is not essential.

You will have the opportunity to work on multiple green field projects in a small close knit team in an agile modern way, continually learn and adopt best practice, you will have fun and you will definitely want to stay.

About WeGotTickets

WeGotTickets is the UK's leading ticket seller for independent event organisers. We work with a wide range of clients from art events and underground restaurants, to pop-up cinemas and theatres, to traditional live music and comedy shows and festivals.

Many of the people involved with WeGotTickets have backgrounds in event promotion, venue management, and artist management: in fact we originally created the system in 2000 because we wanted an online ticket outlet of our own, and we pioneered a paperless ticket system based on reference numbers.

The service was so popular and worked so well that other venues and promoters started using it, liked it, and recommended it, too. We've continued to develop the site based on feedback from our ticket buying customers, promoters and venues, to make it uniquely user-friendly to both ticket buyers and sellers.
