Our developers write beautiful, high-performing PHP for leading brands like The Second City and Northwestern University, as well as high-growth companies like Signal and Tempus. You’ll partner with front-end engineers to own a diverse array of projects through completion, from websites to custom applications.

What is the role?Being a PHP developer at Clique is all about problem solving and adaptability. We leverage open source CMS’s like WordPress to give our clients ultimate control over their applications. You’ll develop custom platforms, and integrations using Laravel and ionic for mobile applications. In any given week, you’ll work on several different applications, all in various stages and with different team members. You’ll need to be equally comfortable learning existing codebases and starting from scratch.
