About us

If you're looking for an exciting remote PHP Developer opportunity to work with cutting-edge technology and be part of something that is revolutionizing the web, then this could just be what your dream job looks like. Flexible hours* remote work anywhere in America!


You are an integral part of our team. We must be able to trust that you can grab a bug, do the required code work with no problems, and in time for release? Our development tempo is fast-paced so your skills must keep up too! You'll have over 4 million websites using your hard work soon enough - let us know if there are any issues before then or things go wrong because nobody wants unreliable software from someone who doesn't care about their job as we do here at

You'll be working on the release team, and we need your help. Your job is to make sure that when our clients deploy new websites they do so quickly with bug-free code - it's not a bureaucracy! It means rolling up your sleeves and getting stuck into coding for hours at a time (or days if necessary), but I'm confident you can take this on because of how passionate about programming.

We know that developers improve with time and experience, so we want to give less experienced ones a chance for mentorship. If you feel like your skillset is on par or better than the Senior Developer level doesn't hesitate to apply instead! We'll notice the job requirements both positions share are similar but interviews go into more detail when interviewing potential Juniors-Senior Developers because they must be able to take full responsibility should something go wrong (and who knows what mistakes will happen!).

At Defiant, we know that you can achieve great things with a little ambition. So if your goal is to grow into an experienced developer and master all of our tech stacks - there's no limit on how fast this will happen! It might not even take years before becoming one of our senior-level engineers or designers; some people make leaps from beginner-level programmers right into lead positions over time too (just ask Steve Jobs).


  • With your skills, you are just what the doctor ordered to help us with our development. With a background in PHP and extensive experience writing code that scales well for large numbers of users--you'll have no problem handling all aspects!
  • Experience with AWS is a plus.
  • You have Production experience with MySQL. You've designed database schemas that maximize scalability and performance to handle the demands of a growing company or business, so I'm sure you'll be an asset in designing our new system's schema as well!
  • You've collaborated with other developers on a project on GitHub.
  • You have a knack for working with large amounts of frequently updated data and designing efficient schemas is your thing.
  • You've implemented a distributed architecture with MySQL and NGINX? What about apps on the LAMP/LEMP stack: Apache, HAProxy, or OpenResty. You're already an expert!
  • You have a knack for coding and crafting beautiful websites. You're good at HTML, CSS as well as JavaScript, or Node? That's great because we need someone to create our next project from scratch using those languages!
  • You're a pro at working with code and you've even collaborated on projects. You know what it takes to be successful in this industry - whether your tasks are big or small, there is no challenge too daunting for someone like yourself!
  • You have a knack for using the command line and are comfortable troubleshooting issues on servers.
  • You're an experienced web developer with a knack for catching vulnerabilities. You can easily identify bugs that other developers might not even notice, and your skill sets are always in high demand by employers who value this unique ability to spot problems before they become major issues down the line

All positions require a trial period of approximately 2-3 weeks with an option to continue as your full-time job. You will be paid for this short-term contract and it's used as an evaluation of whether both parties want the extra work hours or not.

All offers of employment are contingent on the successful completion of a background check. The results of the background checks will be considered as they relate to the position and do not automatically disqualify someone from being offered work with this company!


  1. you'll get a $15,000 signing bonus
  2. 401(k) with a 4% Safe Harbor company match that is 100% vested immediately.
  3. We are counting down the days! With Full-time telecommuting and flexible working hours, you'll have a company that has been 100% remote for over 8 years.
  4. At our company, you'll have 100% employee premium and 50% of dependent premiums paid by the organization for premier-level medical, dental or vision care.
  5. you'll have 21 days PTO per year to start.
