Back-End Developer @ Patch


Patch is looking for an experienced and nimble software engineer with experience in back-end PHP/MySQL/Redis development. You will be working on unique web applications that are fast and built to scale (in a BIG way). You will engage with problems that need singular, inventive and creative solutions and not just specifications.


Candidates Should Possess:

  • Strong and demonstrable MySQL & PHP skills

  • Familiarity working with integrating external APIs

  • Strong experience with Drupal 7

  • Proficiency in Drupal services and custom module creation

  • Ability to create semantic and compliant HTML

  • Well versed in version control systems, most importantly, Git

  • Strong diagnostic skills and inquiry based solutions.

  • Bonus: NodeJS, AWS, system administration


REQUIRED: Excellent teamwork skills and a sense of humor. You also MUST be local -- or local enough to be in the office at least a few days a week.


There is enormous chance to grow at Patch, as well as to gain singular experience working at one of the largest, fastest news sites in the country. It’s also probably the most fun.
