Back End Developer, cross train from PHP to Go



Third Light is seeking a Back End Developer, either a seasoned Gopher or capable back end PHP Developer looking to cross-train to Go, to help deliver sophisticated new product features for release to our Digital Asset Management product – features that will have immediate positive impact for our global user base.

We're a small, but expanding, software development team building an enterprise-level software application with a highly-polished UI using state-of-the art techniques.

Upcoming projects:

- Implement workflow and automation microservices to realise intuitive automated channel publishing tools
