Experienced PHP Developer – Laravel

Jan 6, 2021

TechCare provide businesses with technology solutions and support, helping them work smarter and grow profits.
Established in 2008, we set out supporting local businesses of Staffordshire. Over time we have expanded our portfolio of services and our client base. We now support clients in many different types of industry across the UK and Europe.

Through providing IT support to a variety of clients over the years, we noticed that they were all struggling to centrally manage and monitor their key business data. Many were using a plethora of spreadsheets or disconnected applications. We were sure there had to be a better way, so we embarked on a mission to create a complete business management system. A system that was affordable enough for small businesses to get started with, but powerful enough to support enterprise organisations. We built CloudFlow.

CloudFlow is a modular business management application. The core feature set includes Lead Management, Quoting Tools, Purchase Ordering, Job Scheduling, Cost Capture and KPI Dashboard.

We are looking for a driven individual who has experience working with web-based ERP, CRM or generic CRUD based applications to help us grow this product and the associated custom modules that clients may require.

We provide a friendly place to work where you are sure to feel part of a small but powerful team. We understand the importance of investing in our people and there is support for self-development with training. You are also sure to pick up a thing or two from our existing team who are super excited by new serverless AWS technologies.

  • Working directly with the MD of the company at this stage to understand the longer -term goals for our applications.
  • Working on our internal systems – continuous development
  • Building bespoke applications using the CloudFlow core for our clients
