Looking for a new challenge in your PHP development career? At Purple, we are building a scalable global fintech business from Brno and one of our affiliated companies Purple Next is seeking a PHP Developer. Four years ago, Purple Next began developing two apps: a payment gateway and an e-banking system. The payment gateway has been in production for several years and is currently operating. The e-banking system has a soft-launch deadline in April. After years of development, the team is now working on architectural improvements and rewriting parts of the apps.
Purple companies are not large corporations; instead, you can expect a rather small and flexible team. The entire team is used to working remotely, and they meet each other in person once a month, either in the Brno offices or elsewhere.

WHO ARE WE?
We are a young team with a desire to show the world that a Czech company from Brno has its place in international business. We are innovating the financial world, trying to change the status quo and inspire competition. People are what matters most to us and the groundwork of our entrepreneurship which grows profitably. We can work as a team and have a lot of fun during the day, but we also solve problems, work hard and respect each other.
We are open with each other, and strict working hours are not our style - everyone knows what their job is and how much time they need to devote to it. We prefer project management style to a hierarchical one. Plus, our company is located in a nice office in the city center of Brno, with its own gym, sauna, etc.
