800.com: Senior Full Stack Software Engineer – PHP Focus

Full-Time


About Us
At 800.com, we’re building an intuitive & powerful cloud communications platform for SMBs & Enterprises to communicate via Voice & SMS.
Our backend tech stack currently consists of PHP web apps that serve a public API that our front-end JavaScript app consumes (React / React Native). Our data stores include MySQL, Elasticsearch, and Redis. The underlying infrastructure runs on AWS using a combination of managed services like RDS and non-managed services running on EC2 instances. All of our development runs through CI/CD pipelines that build Docker images.
