Mid-level PHP Web Developer (Craft CMS and Laravel)

Enovate is seeking to hire an enthusiastic and ambitious Mid-level PHP Web Developer ideally with previous agency experience to work on a range of existing and new website and web application projects utilising Craft CMS and Laravel. Enovate will, however, consider a lesser experienced candidate providing they are willing and able to learn quickly.

We transitioned to being a remote company early in 2020 (this was planned from late 2019) and whilst we still maintain an office in Chelmsford, Essex this is a remote role. That said, being within occasional reach of Chelmsford would be advantageous.

This is a permanent role with an initial 3 month probationary period.


The role will include developing, extending and maintaining custom plugins for Craft CMS and contributing to Laravel projects so experience with Laravel and Craft/Yii would be very beneficial. Requirements gathering, scoping and time estimates are also essential aspects of the role, along with an ability to communicate your technical vision to both non-technical team members and clients.
