PHP Developer (m/f/d)

remote / Salzburg / Freilassing

To strengthen our team in Salzburg / Freilassing / Remote, we are looking for a Senior Developer Backend (m/f/d) with immediate effect.

Creating an online marketplace in no time at all? This is easily done with Platoyo! We offer online marketplaces as Platform as a Service (PaaS) to our customers. More than 3,000 dealers from over 400 cities with over 10 million products in Germany, Austria and Luxembourg are now active on the various Platoyo platforms.

We continue to grow enormously - that's why we need you!

Your Job

As a PHP developer, you will be working on our Data Transformer. This application transforms and connects millions of data from the merchants' enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems with the product information systems of brands and suppliers (PIM). Through the Data Transformer, we enable our customers to deliver their data in any format and across all imaginable channels, greatly reducing the barrier to entry for our numerous online platforms.

Your main task is to enable further growth. This includes integrating new formats, ensuring further scalability, optimizing code and database queries, and developing analysis and monitoring tools. Additionally, we want to provide our partners with direct access to the portal, which means we are expanding features related to authentication and authorization.

You will work in an autonomous team of eight developers, either in our office in Freilassing or in the home office of your choice. With our flexible working hours, you decide when and where you work. You are involved in all phases of a project, from analysis, planning, and conception to implementation, testing, and deployment.

How we work


We are fans of simple code & good abstractions (and of Sandi Metz + Avdi Grimm)


We constantly challenge each other to write even better code

Tests, Tests, Tests

We are too lazy to test by hand. That's what our test suite is for, which we cherish and maintain


Dockerized Environments guarantee us the same runtime in development, test & production (no “...but it works on my laptop!” or “...that only works with Linux”)

Deploy all the Things

We release several times a day. Our Continuous Integration (CI) pipeline deploys your changes to all systems with one click

Infrastructure as Code

Our infrastructure is also defined with code and is under version control. We use Terraform, Packer and Ansible.

Code Style

Linting tools such as Rubocop, eslint, stylelint & slim-lint reduce our churn rate, guarantee a uniform coding style and help us to improve code quality

Quality Driven Development

We build sustainable, sophisticated & resilient solutions, where code remains stable and adaptable even after a long time


We keep our throughput high, avoid bottlenecks and are fans of global optimization

Customer First

We look for pragmatic solutions from the perspective of our customers


Automatic security checks for every commit (Brakeman & CVE audits)

Code vs. Documentation

Good & readable code replaces any documentation

Pair Programming

More eyes == better code

MLP (Minimum Lovable Product)

A feature is only finished when it’s fun to use

Radical Candor

We address things directly. A top team and thus a top product can only be created through sincere, open and constructive debates


Deep dive into areas like Full-Text-Search, Statistics, Payment Systems, API Design, SEO, Usability, Backend / Frontend Performance, Mobile Optimization, DB & Model Design, Big Data Processing, AWS Services & DevOps, E-Money...

Learning-Culture & Coaching

You’ll never stop growing with us. We constantly support you to become a better developer and learn new things

We are looking for motivated, eager-to-learn, and curious colleagues who will give their best and fit into our team. As a PHP developer, you have several years of experience in PHP development, the ability to quickly familiarize yourself with new things, and enjoy sharing your knowledge in the form of mentoring and coaching to your colleagues.

Describe why you want to work at Platoyo, what excites you most about your work and how you fit into our team. One or two paragraphs are more than enough.

We are looking forward to meeting you.
