Current projects include major feature additions, focused product improvements, enhanced algorithms for personalized search, APIs for 3rd party applications, and automated systems to counter spam, scams, and phishing attacks. We also routinely refactor the core application to improve performance, efficiency, and code maintainability.
In this job, you’ll be focusing on building out our PHP code base which does all our web templating in a MVC framework.
You’ll work closely with everyone on our product development team to optimize performance characteristics of our core engine, and overall provide solutions to the array of challenges that arise in a fast growing site.
You will work across the entire technology stack, and own what you build from design to implementation to deployment and maintenance.
If your talents are the PHP script kiddies/hacker type, but core architecture has been left up to someone else, then this role isn’t for you. As an engineer at Tagged you will write robust, maintainable, scalable code each day. You will build features used by millions of users just days after you commit your code.
