Backend developer

At IndieBill, we believe that as tech becomes increasingly more accessible and powerful, individuals are able to leverage ecosystems to tackle work that would have typically required the help of a large organization. We believe that a bottom-up economy is the model of the future.

We want to be a part of this future, and that’s why we’ve decided to tackle the least addressed of all markets in this regard: the adult industry. At the moment, it is basically impossible to find proper adult-friendly APIs to build businesses - and that is exactly what we’re building.

Over the past 12 months, our focus has been on building and running the MVP. Now, we have hundreds of entrepreneurs actively using IndieBill.

We are currently a small team of eight people in the heart of Budapest working hard to achieve greatness.

Together, we can propel IndieBill to the next level!

Challenges we'll face together

Creating APIs: We've built our product in the cleanest way we could afford, but we don’t currently have any APIs. Now that we’re a small and profitable company, we’d really like to start opening up to the world!

Bootstrapping an ecosystem: Simply making APIs and waiting for the world to use them is not going to cut it (or at least, not for us). Together, we’ll put in the effort needed to make sure that other developers can earn a living working with us.

Continuous Integration: We believe that testing is a worthwhile investment, and we have quite a few of them running already. We will together greatly improve the quality and quantity of our tests to make sure that working on our projects is always a pleasure.

The adult industry: It is a fun industry filled with very interesting people. However, there is a certain stigma attached to this industry, meaning that much of today’s awesome tech is not available to us (many companies refuse to work with adult businesses). We’ll need to be creative to succeed. You must be comfortable working with adult materials.

The job

It’s an opening position in a young startup. You’ll be working toward improving our backend skills (we operate two websites and several other internal services). You will design and implement the software architecture and data storage required for the development of new features and refactoring of our services.

You will be working closely with Xavier (lead backend dev) and Claude (Sysadmin) to build high quality software that can easily scale.

Desired skills

  • You know how to write efficient PHP code, you’re aware of coding best practices, automated testing, CI/CD. Hopefully, you know your classics (HTTP, RESTful API etc.)
  • Solid experience in at least one PHP framework (we currently use Symfony 2.6 to 3.4)
  • Good thinking/knowledge/experience about data modelling and SQL engine.
  • Git/Github
  • Docker
  • Great tech culture
  • Fluent in English

Who we’re looking for

While we need a good developer, we’re also looking for a great personality fit.

We are looking for a curious and proactive thinker/doer who can not only get the job done, but also define what his/her future position should be in our growing company.

We don’t mind whether or not you have a diploma or certification. We only care that you learn quickly and take ownership of your work.

We don’t mind if you are a misfit, a troublemaker, or have an alternative lifestyle. We care that you are truly open minded and see things differently.

Our culture

More than just building products, we strive to create a community around an alternative economic model. We want to spark the emergence of an adult-friendly tech ecosystem, empower entrepreneurs around the world, and foster innovation in our market.

We truly believe that great results are achieved through conclusive experiments, not over-detailed plans. We’re not afraid to recognize failures, learn from them, and start over.
