Senior PHP Developer

Mumbai, Maharashtra   |   Full Time

Job Brief 

You're full-stack. Period. You can and want to write code end-to-end. You would enjoy designing a system for speed and scale.

Looking for an experienced team lead to help write new features, design and build useful API methods, and improve the reliability of our systems as we quickly grow.
