Senior PHP Developer

Slightly Different, Penryn3 months

Award winning Penryn-based digital agency, focussing on a comprehensive European B2B publishing CMS with integrated e-commerce, using Drupal, Magento and custom PHP based solutions. A recruitment agent persuaded me to leave Bognor Regis and Krowmark to join Slightly Different in Cornwall. After initially being very pleased with the lifestyle change and the chance to give a better life to my children, SD promptly went bust, without warning just after Christmas 2014. At SD, I was responsible for e-commerce maintenance using Magento, Drupal project builds, WordPress project builds and social media marketing campaigns with some SEO building and report generation for clients. Also responsible for Linux and Apache configuration using Centos/Ubuntu.
