PHP Architect at Coolblue (Rotterdam, Netherlands)

As a PHP Architect at Coolblue, you make sure that our web shops are architecturally sound and provide our customer with the best possible experience.

What you say at parties

"I write code and help build webshops. No, I don't use l33t speak."

What you really do

  • Come up with solutions that improve the performance of our webshops.
  • Improve the technology that runs over 300 webshops.
  • Work in teams that consist of 5 (+/- 2) developers and designers.

How you do it

  • You're an all-rounder in a Scrum team. You have your own expertise, but you're able to handle anything your team throws at you.
  • You'll prioritize assignments together with your team and Product Owner.
  • You'll receive feedback directly from end-users, and you'll be given plenty of opportunity to experiment.
  • You'll work closely together with your team in order to meet ambitious deadlines. There's always a budget for good ideas.
  • You'll measure the performance and reliability of all the new features that you introduce, and you'll be ready to fix anything that goes wrong.
  • You'll actively coach your fellow team members and provide feedback.


You'll be working in a team with three to five other developers, each of them with their own specialization (back-end and front-end developers, or UX designers). Your team will work together with a Team Lead, a Scrum Master, and a Product Owner. Your team is part of a larger family, in which each team is responsible for one specific domain of the Coolblue website.

A day at the office

You open a pull request in GitHub for your last changes in the Javascript codebase of one of the back-end services for our new faceted-search functionality. You have fixed a bug in a de-serialisation method that was causing metadata to leak from JSON objects. Considering the large amount of simultaneous, relatively small requests these services process, Node.js seemed the obvious choice. So you had to abandon your usual work field of PHP and give the old Javascript another chance. Once again it proved itself a powerful language, capable of building beautiful stuff. Maybe the front-enders were right after all? Now that this has been tackled, you return to PHP. You had this idea to optimise the determination of the sorting order of the filters on the site.

What we're asking

  • You're a team player.
  • A minimum of seven years experience as a PHP developer.
  • You're experienced when it comes to improving your colleagues' craftsmanship and technical skills.
  • Clean Architecture and Scrum/Agile are in your DNA.
  • You know how to write clean, readable, and extendable PHP code.
  • You're able to solve problems using accepted best practices and principles, like SOLID and design patterns.
  • You care about code quality.
  • You know how to automate recurring development steps and implement them in continuous integration and deployment systems.
  • You're willing to relocate to Rotterdam (or nearby).

What we're offering

  • Relocation assistance, from start to finish.
  • Dutch language courses. To help you become a Rotterdammert.
  • Over 30 courses at our Coolblue University.
  • A relocation bonus on top of your first monthly salary.
  • Discount on a new bicycle. Because that's how we roll.
  • A 10% discount on all of our products.
  • Travel allowance and a retirement plan.
  • An office at the best possible location. It's only a hop and a skip away from Rotterdam Central Station. Or a 2-minute walk.
  • An awesome workplace. With freshly prepared meals, monthly TGIF drinks at our own bar, epic Coolblue parties, extracurricular activities, and an informal, playful office space.
  • 25 leave days. As long as you'll promise to come back.
  • Parties. All night LAN.
  • Money. And we'll ask the government to give you a tax break.
