Do you want to become a part of a growing company where you'll be able to follow and influence everything that happens? At Awardit, you'll get to create loyalty solutions for some of the largest and most well-known companies in the Nordics, including brands like SAS, E.ON, Handelsbanken, Mastercard, Ahlsell, Scandic Hotels and Klarna.

About us

Awardit has been developing loyalty solutions for some of the largest and most well-known brands in the Nordics since 1999. We are a turnkey one-stop-shop supplier who builds and hosts the site, purchases and stocks the products, packs and ships the orders, handles payments and invoicing, and operates the customer service. If your heart beats a little extra for loyal customers and digital experiences, we know you’ll love it here. In addition to all of your nice colleagues, our 1 000 m2 attic in the old industrial meat packing district of Gamlestaden holds a video game nook, a pool and a ping pong table, as well as an espresso machine that would impress even the most seasoned barista.

About the role

At Awardit, you'll become a part of a seasoned agile team where you'll work on a PHP based headless stack (7.4) using e-commerce platform Magento as a core. We serve our frontend as an isomorphic react based SPA where the page is rendered on the server using NodeJS using data from PHP via GraphQL and REST. In addition to Magento, we use a couple of support services based on Symphony, NodeJS and Java. In the team, you'll be given a fun, creative and stimulating work with exciting projects where own initiatives are are greatly appreciated and your thoughts and ideas will be valued highly.

About you

We believe you have at least a couple of years experience of PHP focused backend development, maybe using frameworks like Symfony or Laravel (or maybe Magento). You are driven by the opportunity to learn new things and you enjoy new challenges. You are a curious, eager problem solver that likes to embrace new technology, tooling and methods to further increase your own, as well as your colleagues' efficiency.

You enjoy taking own initiatives, think proactively and like to work closely with the product owner and frontend developer to drive projects forward and deliver an as good product as possible.

  • Solid experience from PHP based backend development
  • Knowledge of common SQL dialects such as MySQL, SQL Server, Postgres or similar
  • Experience from building and working with APIs, using standards such as GraphQL, REST and SOAP
  • Server based javascript (NodeJS/Express)

  • Solid knowledge of the Swedish language

  • Administering / orchestrating *nix based servers (Ansible, Chef, Puppet, Docker, Kubernetes etc)
  • Serverless
  • Object oriented programming using languages such as Rust / Go / Java / C#
