PHP Developer

Malaga, Spain

At Uptodown we are looking for a PHP developer to immediately join our development team located in Malaga.


Who are we?

Uptodown is a global distribution platform for Android, Windows, and Mac applications where developers can register their apps for free. These apps are then offered on different channels (web, native) and can be monetized using various services.

In the same way, users from all over the world can access thousands of apps legally, openly, and free of charge without the need to create an account in more limiting app stores.

Currently, we are dedicated to the development of new features both for the end-user and for other companies that collaborate with Uptodown in the distribution and monetization of apps.

What will your tasks be?

To contribute to the development of our unique project, Uptodown, on a long-term basis, in a flexible working environment.

Your responsibilities will start with maintaining the current code, improving it, and adding new features to meet all the challenges ahead.

Next to you will be a team of developers with whom you will have to work side by side to deliver value to the user of our platform in an efficient way.

All PHP developers cover the backend development side. However, you'll have no problem investigating other areas (front-end, system administration) and train in them if you're interested.
