PHP Web Developer Required by Leading Digital Agency

Zeta is based in Poole, with offices in London and Shanghai. We have a broad client base and also work on our own development ideas. Some exciting new projects are coming up in 2012, so we are looking for a new PHP developer to join the team in our Poole office. This is a brand new role which would give you a unique opportunity to develop skills, working directly with our lead developer, Sarah.

As an extremely ambitious individual, you’ll need to have:

  • 1-2 years experience coding dynamic websites using:
  • Linux (preferably but Windows is OK)
  • Apache
  • MySQL
  • PHP
  • HTML
  • CSS
  • Some experience integrating with JS libraries such as Query
  • An understanding of the difference between procedural and OO methodologies
  • The ability to break complex problems down into simple steps

It would be nice if you knew:

  • Linux command line
  • Subversion
  • WordPress
  • Magento
  • Phonegap

We’ve got people from all walks of life at Zeta, making our offices an energetic and exciting place to work. Despite our 12 years in the industry we have a strong start up culture. We expect people to be driven, self motivated and most importantly have passion for their work; but we also have a very flexible working environment and excellent benefits. We’re open minded when it comes to qualifications – if you are genuinely brilliant at what you do, we don’t mind if you don’t have a degree background.

Our environment is open plan and full of creative energy – innovation is encouraged here. You’ll be working directly alongside our lead developer; directors of the company; and the talented teams in our marketing and creative departments. We all pitch in to get the job done and fully expect to support each other.

We’re offering a starting salary of 18-21K depending upon experience, and that will rise as you progress. You’ll also get entry into the company pension scheme and free breakfast – our espresso machine makes the best coffee this side of Costa Rica!

Our working hours are designed to give staff an excellent work-life balance – we work from 8:30 to 5:30 Monday to Thursday and finish at 1pm on Fridays.

Now we’ve told you a bit about us – so we want to hear all about you! Please send your CV and covering letter to or, if discretion is required, Sam Allen directly at
