About the role
Are you passionate about programming and are looking for a new challenge to further your skills and career in a great working environment? Then this is the position for you!
As part of our continued global success, we are looking for a Full-Stack Web developer to join our magicplan Cloud team in our Munich office.
Our tech stack is quite big and diverse - we have a cross-platform C++ core (rending, algorithmics, AI, etc.), Objective-C and Swift for our iOS app, Java and Kotlin for our Android app, Python and Unity for our research team and PHP/MySQL/DynamoDB/Vue.JS for our web platforms. There is a lot to learn from your team members and you'll have the opportunity to look at a big and dynamic code base with interesting technology all over.
In this role you're going to be working in the magicplan Cloud team. Here's the Cloud Tech Stack:
- Framework: CakePHP 4.2 (we aim to stay very current here)
- Database: MySQL 8, partly Amazon DynamoDB
- Frontend: Vue.JS for reactivity, VanillaJS for small stuff. Vite as a fast and efficient packaging tool. tailwindCSS and SASS.
- Hosting: AWS (EC2, DynamoDB, Load Balancers, EFS, S3, WAF, CloudFront)
- Git: GitHub & GitHub Actions
- CI: PHPUnit, phpstan, phpci
- Quite unique: we have our own PHP extension that exposes the functionality of the magicplan (C++) Core transparently to our web platforms, including rendering. We currently use SWIG to expose interfaces and bindings to it and have a composer package wrapping it in a clear, well-tested API.
- For our 3D rendering, which is also the responsibility of our cloud team, we use Three.JS
- API Development, Validation and Documentation: OpenAPI / Swagger
From a process perspective, we use Code Reviews extensively as a quality and learning tool.
Perspectively (but optionally) there is room to grow to a leadership position.
What you'll do
As a Full-Stack Web Developer you will play a key role in the development of our web platforms, which consist of a comprehensive API layer for our mobile apps, a public API layer for integrations with our clients, and last but not least - the magicplan Cloud as a product for our users.
We aim to bring more functionality of our mobile apps to the web and build it out to a project-management focused tool built around our core technology. You will also be working on our 2022 roadmap, which includes comprehensive communication functionality (comments and such), and challenging initiatives to edit floor plans on the web using our PHP extension.
- You work closely with our Product team and designers in the technical design of new features.
- You work closely with our Head of Engineering and CTO in order to make good, scalable and maintainable technical decisions.
- You will implement both the backend and frontend parts of features.
- You work closely with the other platform teams.
- You are first of all really passionate about web applications.
- You have significant experience (5+ years) in web development in the PHP world, and on how great browser frontends work and are built.
- You love to design APIs that you would want to use yourself.
- You are up to date on technological developments in your area of expertise.
- You are a great communicator and a team player.
- You have empathy and are able to teach and communicate ideas and concepts to your team members.
