Why work when you can play?
Can you tell people the difference between PHP 5.1 and 5.3? Do you laugh when people say “That website is so web 2.0?” Do you look at code and say, “I could do better!”
If you answered yes to these questions, we may have a place for you at Slickdeals.net as a Software Engineer.
We’re looking for creative, motivated web developers who also have a passion for finding deals and saving money! Successful candidates are individuals who are strong with php and mysql and know how to use them together effectively and efficiently. The ideal candidate is up to date on the latest web tech and trends and are always trying new things out. They hear the phrase “AJAX” and point out that its nothing new.
