System developer

Our clients’ businesses are growing, and the technical demands for their websites are growing with them. Adapt is historically a Drupal/Perl agency, but we believe the key to performance is building distributed systems, where the task at hand decides the technology used. For this reason, we are looking for skilled developers with experience in building and integrating with large scale APIs, who can help us towards our goal of more framework agnostic solutions. We don’t care if you prefer PHP, Go, Node.js or something else, as long as you’re good at what you do.

The Role

The positions of Developers are integral parts of all our teams. You’ll be part of a core team located in our Copenhagen office, and you will be building and integrating with large scale APIs, and help us towards our goal of more framework agnostic solutions. 

At Adapt you will help solve challenges like how to make a webshop checkout flow scale during a surge of visitors during Black Friday sales, handling imports of thousands of rows in a data layer without it affecting performance, or perhaps making the editor experience as user friendly as possible, while presenting the end user with a highly tailored and personal user experience. 

As part of the core team, you’ll have continuous contact with our offices around the world, primarily Copenhagen, and you’ll work with Project Managers, Designers and UX’ers.

You, you, you

Right, here’s the thing. We already know a lot about what your role will be, but we also have an idea about what you’ve been through so far. Of course, you get to sprinkle your own magic along the way in our quest, but to pull your own weight, you probably need to have: 

  • been building scalable solutions and REST services for years
  • experience with advanced caching setups, and are no stranger to Memcached, opcode cache and Varnish
  • confidence with databases and know how to optimize queries
  • a fearless approach to trying out new technologies
  • a solid habit of pushing everything GIT and never leaving without having pushed your changes
  • experience as both a team player and a self-driven resource 
  • proficiency in technical English, both written and spoken
  • experience with Laravel is a plus 

The culture

We’re quite social at Adapt, and rarely a month goes by without an Adapt event of some kind. We throw big parties every year, where we invite both our clients and friends, they are well attended and always a lot of fun.

Friday bars, both planned and spur of the moment, are a common thing at Adapt, and they often entail a friendly game of table soccer or a less friendly game of Cards against Humanity.

Adapt sponsors employee planned events as well, and we’ve been bowling, to the movies and joined forces to escape a Mystery Room.
 

Join us, or else…!

So, what do you need to know about us? Beside the fact that we are the very frontline of digital evolution, we really are a lovely bunch. Honest. We’re also international, with 6 offices placed strategically around the world, we’ve already come far, and you’ll be placed in our Copenhagen office. We are partners to our clients, we collaborate, we build trust, and so do you. 

Oh, and
