At Klever we specialise in bespoke web applications that meet the business needs of our clients. We serve a wide variety of sectors, from event delivery and logistics, to travel and tourism, to music production. We currently have a friendly team of three developers based in Reading, and one developer who works remotely. We’re looking to take on a junior developer to join us at our Reading office.

The majority of our work is bespoke. We deliver a diverse range of systems and websites, including business management systems, e-commerce websites, ticket sales websites, command-line server applications and iOS/Android apps. This presents a great opportunity for our team to explore new technologies, and we actively encourage continual learning.


About the job

Full time, 37.5 hours/week

Salary: £23k to £26k (depending on experience)

Location: Reading Enterprise Centre, Reading University Whiteknights Campus

Technologies we use

We develop software using a variety of languages and tools; most often we use a combination of the following:

PHP (Laravel)
Javascript (ES6+ standard, Vue)
HTML 5 and CSS 3
PHPUnit (we use a test-driven approach for many projects)
Ubuntu servers (provisioned on AWS, running Nginx or Apache)

Who we’re looking for

You should have a good grounding in object-oriented PHP and Javascript, with the capacity and desire to learn new skills. More experience with the above technologies is a plus, but training will be given to the right candidate to fill any gaps.

You should have a high attention to detail, a drive to always be learning new things and be able to work independently on projects (within your ability). It’s also important that you’re able to communicate with clients directly to give updates and gather requirements.

Key responsibilities

Writing new websites and systems using Laravel or a CMS
Helping to write and maintain existing web applications for our clients
Setting up and maintaining public-facing websites
Managing servers and other cloud computing resources

Flexible working hours (10am - 3pm core hours, 37.5 hours/week)
MacBook Pro provided for work use
Time allowance for learning and professional development
Access to premium e-learning resources (such as Laracasts and CodeCourse)
