Are you an experienced senior PHP developer who is technically skillful and genuinely interested in technology as a creative pursuit and not ‘just a job?’ If you want to spend your days in a fun and supportive workplace with a solid focus on professional development, SilverStripe is the place for you!

As a SilverStripe developer, you will spend your days contributing and collaborating on leading-edge websites, as well as having the chance to contribute to our open source SilverStripe Framework and CMS.

Here are the specifics of what we’re after in a developer:


We're family friendly

SilverStripe is a grown-up company. We want to create an environment that has all the excitement and intellectual stimulation of a startup but with a sensible business model. We don't run you ragged by expecting you to work 80-hour weeks. We do enjoy working with smart people in an efficient and focused manner. Many SilverStripers have young families and we strive to support that.

We take professional development seriously

There are plenty of opportunities for learning — we pay for SilverStripers to attend conferences and training; we have an awesome mentoring programme; we hold our own monthly hackdays; and we support knowledge sharing through regular internal events likes “Show & Tells”, "Lunch & Learns" and “Guild Meetings”. We've got something on every week. Mostly, you will be working alongside super smart designers, developers and scrum masters. They’ll share their love of the craft with you and help you grow your skills.

We have an awesome culture

SilverStripe is big on things like building trusting relationships, using technology to solve important problems, and helping others reach their goals. We actively champion a culture that supports our core values of honesty over comfort; adaptability over guarantees; collaboration over control; continuous improvement over perfection; and camaraderie over corporate culture. Our culture sets us apart — it’s a key reason that brings people to SilverStripe and keeps them here.
