About Caption Data
Caption Data is a leading Industrial IoT business delivering solutions to various markets, utilising our own in-house designed and developed software and Web Portal. Caption Data is at a point of significant growth opportunity and as a result, we have created this new role. This is a software development role and the work involved will help to drastically shape our business going forward.
In This Role
We are in the process of expanding the feature set of our web portal platform. You will be instrumental in this process and will have the opportunity to very quickly make your mark on our solution. In addition, we are also designing and building our next-generation system. This is another area where you will have the opportunity to assist in building this out to be a truly scalable, enterprise-ready data platform, whilst having a keen eye for detail.
About the person we need
A software developer with a very strong, hands-on background in PHP development is needed, along with relational database skills, front-end development, in addition to a solid grasp of current technology, security practices, and standards. Development experience with the Magento shopping cart platform would be a big advantage, but not a requirement. In addition, other advantageous skills include experience working with relational databases, AWS services, and real-time communications protocols such as MQTT and WebSockets. Just as important though are excellent interpersonal skills, a sense of purpose, the ability to work to deadlines and a large dose of ambition, a can-do attitude, professionalism, as well as a good sense of humour.
We are a small, dynamic team and you must also have the ability to be flexible in your working approach and be able to handle a degree of variation in your work.
Nice to have skills
