Senior Full-Stack PHP Developer for IT Documentation Tool

Location: Kharkiv, Ukraine

About the customer

Our customer is a well-known German tech company that provides various startups and enterprises with professional software to handle the requirements of modern IT operations and IT service management. Their product has an open-source version and a community of dedicated end-users and contributors. The product is top-rated in Europe within well-established companies of different sizes and branches, making it now a leading software tool in the field of IT documentation, configuration management databases (CMDB), and security.

About the project

In a nutshell, it’s an application for IT documentation and a full-fledged CMDB that allows users to collect all their knowledge about the IT infrastructure (both software and hardware) they’re dealing with within their companies. By using this product, users obtain the “point of information” for all their internal IT processes. All the data that has to be documented is centralized in one single spot – easy-to-navigate and user-friendly. The application provides both automatic and manual updates, which proves that the product has a scalable structure able to adapt to each user’s particular needs/requirements.

This software combines both the classic structures of IT asset management and peculiar features of a CMDB and CMS defined by ITIL. Now, our customer prepares the next big version of the product – 2.0. It’s going to present a significant change of tech stack and the overall project’s architecture. Basically, it’s a new, almost from scratch, project, with defined scope and requirements from a currently existing product.

About the team

For now, the team consists of 4 senior developers. There is no dedicated Team Lead within a development team. In Brightgrove, there are a couple of technical teams that interact with each other:

  • Development
  • Support (Customer Care)
  • Product
  • Testing

Every team handles its own tasks and responsibilities. There is no direct subordination, but there are particular experts responsible for the project/parts of the project who assign tasks and control their status.

Our team is pretty flat and friendly – everyone can freely express his/her opinion, and everyone is welcomed to share their own ideas for the project. We guarantee a pleasant working atmosphere and supportive teammates. Your scope of work for this project is to be fully involved in the development of the product’s 2.0 version.
