Full Stack Developer


Founded in 2004, TTNC is a multi-award-winning Communications Provider that supports over 16,000 business customers. These customers range from sole traders and small businesses through to large corporations and agencies.

TTNC started from a desire to put power and flexibility into the hands of the customer. We continue to put our customers first and ensure we provide a fair, honest service with no hidden surprises.

The Role

We’re looking for a software developer to work within our team to build our new control panel. This is an SPA written in React with a REST API using PHP 7.

Another critical area is our backend services which run as jobs or daemon processes powering our core business systems and integrations. We also have a back-office system and a website which are actively developed.

The development team also works closely with the technical support team to provide third line support and ensure any bugs fixes are resolved promptly.

The ideal candidate will likely come from a product development or agency background. They must have a real passion for software development and for creating great user experiences.

The candidate should enjoy learning new skills and keeping up to date with trends and the latest tools. They must be self-motivated, enthusiastic and able to work under minimum supervision.
