The position

We are looking for someone to join our team that looks at problems and processes in a manner that takes in technical and commercial considerations, and will look at how we can best enhance and optimise all areas of our business. You need to be keen to keep learning and researching new development design patterns, processes and technologies that can enhance operations within our business.

Your primary responsibility within DTS would be maintaining and extending a range of platforms, including our in house CRM, our traffic accounting platform, various APIs to external systems and interfacing with service provider portals.

You would contribute to daily standup meetings and look to proactively interact with other staff to gain insights into operational barriers experienced that you can address. Reporting directly to the CEO and working alongside the Network Operations Manager, you will regularly discuss strategic company goals with these colleagues and coordinate your project outcomes and timelines with their input.

If you have previously contributed to open source projects (it doesn’t matter if it’s a few line bug fixes) and are keen to show us what you’ve done, it will add a lot of value to our decision.

If you have previous experience developing in a hosting or service provider environment it would be a huge bonus.

  • Experience with a widely adopted PHP framework (preferably Laravel)

  • Experience integrating with APIs (REST/SOAP/XML-RPC etc)
  • A self-starter with strong project management skills and the ability to communicate project timelines and delivery
  • If you have experience managing a team of developers it will add a lot of value to our decision
  • You must be able to write very clear documentation and have very good English


  • 3+ years of experience building and maintaining Linux server environments (preferably CentOS) to support our applications and business requirements
  • Experience implementing, tuning and maintaining applications like Apache, PHP, MySQL
