PHP Laravel Developer - Movem

Brighton and Hove

Closing date: 28/01/2019

At Movem we’re on a mission to make renting fairer and more transparent. We began as a start-up, and this year was acquired by Barbon Insurance Group—the industry’s largest referencing provider. We’re now their ‘Google X’ wing: experimenting with new ideas, developing new technology and solving problems.

We’re looking for the best and most creative engineers to join our small team in Brighton, and help us achieve that goal.

As a small team, ideas come from anywhere, and everywhere, and you’ll be expected to put your tools down to have group discussions about moonshot ideas.

In an office overlooking the Old Steine, we’ve quietly changed an industry. We’re looking for the next thing. If you have any questions about the role or team, please don’t hesitate to email Mark ( directly.

Job Description:

We’re looking for an ambitious, creative and open-minded backend developer. We’ll judge you based on your code and your approach to problems, not just on your previous experience, so please do apply and show us why you’re a great developer.
