    About IO

    We design, build and scale digital products

    We are a remote team
    Our culture
    IO has a team-based culture. A team-based culture is an interplay between leadership, teamwork, and effective communication. It’s also about recognising the strengths and qualities of a team player and nurturing them while encouraging collaboration and communication between everyone as a whole. This does not mean we value teams above the individual, however, it allows us to trust in team outcomes, rather than micro-management

    Our values

    About the role

    We are looking for back-end developers with a strong sense of team, fantastic self-discipline, and work ethics to join our already amazing team here at IO. We build beautifully designed digital products for startups and clients, and we build them to exceptional standards. As a senior back-end developer at IO, you will be creating powerful, flexible, scalable APIs and developing various backend systems and operations. Additionally, you will architect, define and maintain our database and models, and ensure our systems can keep up their high performance and responsiveness.
    You will be responsible for implementing new features and integrations as well as supporting our existing functionality. You will have the opportunity to make a lasting impact on our stack and the future of development in IO.

    Our ideal candidate has...

    • A minimum of 5 years of full-time industry experience as a software developer (preferably using all or most of these - Laravel / PHP, RESTApi, MySQL and PostgreSQL)
    • A passion for code quality and standards
    • The ability to respectfully review code and be a mentor to other developers
    • A good understanding of a DevOps culture
    • Experience with CI/CD
    • Experience with TDD principles
    • Extensive PWA development knowledge
    • Proficiency in database design, optimisation and tuning, specifically MySQL and PostgreSQL
    • Proficiency in GitLab or a similar GitOps tool
    • Exposure to Docker, AWS and GCP
    • Experience working on an Agile team, specifically the Scrum framework

    Our ideal candidate is...

    • A pragmatic thinker
    • A true problem-solver and self-starter
    • Client-centred (meaning you can align IO’s goals and deliverables with the client’s goals and deliverables); and
    • Presentable and knowledgeable in client interactions

    Our expectations 

    • Above all else, we value an attitude of lifelong self-learning. We are a team of people that keep up to date and continue to educate ourselves through research, mentoring and discussions
    • An attitude of openness to keep learning is more important to us than fancy qualifications
    • We are looking for highly motivated individuals who are willing to be part of a growing company. You must display a continuous willingness to learn and grow as a team player, and adaptability and flexibility in terms of tech stacks used
    • We expect you to take full ownership of your work, and to be a reliable team member especially when production issues arise and need to be tackled quickly
    • We take the time to put good structures, apps and tools in place to make work-life as easy as possible at IO, but your teams will still rely on you to display coping skills when it comes to complexity and tight deadlines

    We do use other backend languages on product development teams in IO, i.e. Firebase. Openness to take on a new skill will go a long way in IO.

    Why join us?

    • We are a very close-knit team, highly focussed on teams and teamwork
    • We build great products, applications, and startups
    • We are focused on web standards, quality software, efficiency, and continuous improvement
    • We stay ahead of the curve 
    • We are remote
    • We are flexible
