PHP Developer

Sofia, Bulgaria


TechPods is a UK-based technology co-sourcing company with offices in Bulgaria. Unlike traditional IT outsourcing companies, TechPods' fully transparent model enables companies to scale quicker, while mitigating risk and reducing costs. We strongly believe that traditional outsourcing is dead, and the key to long-term success lies within partnering, as opposed to vendoring.

We're currently hiring PHP Developer for one of our clients - a data center infrastructure management software company, based in the UK. You will become part of a dedicated engineering team based in Sofia, working directly with your colleagues in the UK.

Designed to continuously monitor, plan and optimize data center performance, our client's machine learning platform built by PhD-level thermodynamic experts, helps customers save energy, increase their capacity and reduce their risk from their installed networks.

Their central application is a web-based SaaS platform for the monitoring, management, and analytics of environmental data such as power, weather and thermal. Our partner creates unique energy and environmental widgets that provide users with enhanced performance metrics to run their systems at optimal levels.

The team has recently moved out of the initial product development phase and is now moving into the international arena.
