Senior PHP Engineer

What is Transactional messaging team doing?

Transactional messaging is responsible for all communication towards customers related to current state, changes and updates of their reservation. Over the years, our team has come a long way from sending just a few emails. We are now able to communicate via all main communication channels (email, sms, mobile push notifications and social networks). We also need to be able to send thousands of messages within minutes in case of emergencies. On top of that, we are storing, visualising and evaluating the delivered content as well as customer’s interaction with it.

To achieve a high success rate of deliveries and to minimize the sending processing time, our services need to be highly available and scalable on demand. 

We release to production multiple times a day. To measure the impact and the health of the release – automated testing, real-time monitoring and alerting is in place. We focus our development on the ability to deliver new features and additional value to our customers. While doing that, we refactor parts of the code which slow the development down. 

What technologies do we use?

  1. Main codebase written in PHP 7.3/7.4
  2. Nette framework
  3. Docker images for local development & for production
  4. Orchestration by Kubernetes, deployed to GCP
  5. Mysql, Postgres & Elasticsearch as permanent storage
  6. RabbitMQ for processing asynchronous requests
  7. PHPstan, Easy coding standard for code analysis, PHPUnit for tests
  8. Jira for implementing SW development model (Kanban)
  9. Slack as a main communication tool
  10. Datadog for real-time metrics, logs, monitors and dashboards
  11. PagerDuty for alerting
  12. GoLang for smaller, stand alone services
  13. React, HTML & CSS to create UI for internal purposes
