Full Stack (AMP) Designer/Developer for existing e-commerce site (Prestashop)
We are looking for a Designer/Developer for existing e-commerce site (Prestashop)
Core Skills (required) - Ranked in order of importance:
Ideally experience with Prestashop, but experience with any PHP based e-commerce platform (such as OScommerce, ZenCart, MagentoCart etc) will suffice. Candidate MUST have demonstrable experience writing/editing controllers for one of these platforms. This project is using a number of custom made controllers so a fundamental understanding of how PHP works in an MVC framework is a must. Experience just creating HTML/CSS templates and installing modules is not enough, must feel very comfortable directly in the CMS.
Candidate should be at least familiar enough with MySQL to understand the existing interactions between the controllers and the database. A strong grasp of MySQL would be advantageous but the project does not require any particularly complicated database interactions so true mastery of SQL is not required.
As you'll be working as part of a predominantly English speaking team, a functional understanding of English is a must, and fluency would be greatly appreciated. To let us know that you have read and understood this description in full, please start your cover letter with the word "USUIT"
Preferred skills (desired but not required)
-Use of version control, most specifically git (candidates that can link to a github profile with relevant projects will be strongly favored)
-Use of Cron or other useful server management software.
-Knowledge/experience of 3D modeling/animation
-Knowledge/experience of tailoring
-Experience in analytics software such as Google Analytics. Being able to calculate statistical significance for a given sample size/variable
-Understanding of HTTP, the DOM and SPDY
Please include with your cover letter a link/reference to at least one project you have worked on that involved using PHP to create or modify controllers in an MVC framework.
