Website marzeelabs Marzee Labs Lda

Tech shop developing all types of web platforms.

We are looking for a full-time web developer with WordPress/PHP experience and looking to grow into JavaScript frameworks to join our distributed team [in Porto or Setúbal].

Marzee Labs is a tech shop with solid tech capacity. We develop web platforms from scratch, improve existing ones, and provide technical consulting for large projects. We fully commit to making things work, always with the highest tech standards and top quality services.

We are proud to bring top-notch technical skills to big, international projects, as well as Open Source technologies, contributing, participating, and getting involved first-hand with the community. Our services have been welcomed in big companies in countries such as France, Germany, UK, US, Spain, Portugal and Belgium.

Our team is made of incredible people and we all have fun working on the web. We believe that happiness is contagious, circular and interchangeable between clients, users, and our team. We feel that we have the chance to learn something new every day and that evolving as a team is what makes us challenge the status quo and go beyond the expectations.

As we expand, we need more talented, exciting people to join us.

What you will be doing:

  • Working closely with external development teams and management to help steer the technical direction of the projects Marzee Labs are involved in.
  • Taking part in cool, big, international and technically interesting projects.
  • Developing mainly using PHP and WordPress, but also other cool open-source technologies.
  • Learning how to be a better developer, way beyond the code you produce.
  • Exploring exciting new web technologies, outside of the scope of client work, and bringing back value to the team.

Are we fit for each other?
Quality is key for us

This is what we are expecting from your side:

  • Enthusiasm and a willingness to learn and get involved deeply.
  • Experience in programming and software development (can be a degree or a pet project).
  • PHP programming knowledge/experience
  • WordPress knowledge/experience
  • Interest (and experience?) in Open Source projects and development.
  • Self-motivation and working independently, but also good at collaboration, taking direction and working with others.
  • Ability to communicate both verbally and written at a high level in English.

We value extra miles

What we seek as an added bonus:

  • HTML5 and CSS3 fundamentals for proper markup (cross-browser).
  • JavaScript experience (especially if using state of the art frameworks, such as React).
  • Cloud knowledge, DevOps interests, etc.
  • Database (MySQL) administration.
  • An “eye” for design.
  • SCRUM experience.
  • Super bonus: some Drupal knowledge

We treat our team very well

Working with Marzee Labs is rewarding is many aspects:

  • Flexible schedule: life comes before work – we all have family, hobbies and side projects.
  • We measure work in goals and quality of delivery, not in the number of hours you are sitting in front of your computer.
  • Salary will depend on your experience, but we always make sure you can live comfortably.
  • We value your growth, this is why getting some learning time is important to us as part of your work.
  • You are not alone – we work from the coolest coworking spaces in town and we have a spot for you.

  • We value diversity in the Marzee Labs team (see our manifesto).
