XING is the social network for business professionals with millions of members all over the world. Help us shape the future – for a better working life! We currently have an opening at our headquarters in Hamburg 

The PHP Architect (m/f) will work closely with our architecture teams but will be seen as a separate expert role within the XING tech organization. The main focus of the role is the promotion of PHP inside XING as well as the implementation and execution of highly demanding technical projects.

A challenging Task

  • Review and optimise our existing PHP Architecture
  • Evaluate and recommend new technology to improve the existing ecosystem
  • Provide architecture consulting for development teams or help out as a technical lead on challenging projects
  • Execute migration projects and assume responsibility for their success
  • Improve and maintain existing application code
  • Act as an PHP Evangelist and work closely with our whole tech organization to improve our use of PHP and its frameworks (for example Symfony)
  • Mentor our other PHP Engineers and help them hone their skills and share your knowledge in our community of practice

A convincing background

  • Profound knowledge of PHP and its Frameworks (PHP 7.1, Symfony…)
  • Several years of experience as an technical project lead (for example for large scale migration projects)
  • Experience in enterprise projects (knowledge of enterprise patterns)
  • Ability to manage different stakeholders and being able to adopt to a diplomatic standpoint when it comes to technical decisions and being an internal networker
  • Being seen in the PHP community as a Conference Speaker, writer of Blogs and so on is a plus

An inspiring environment
