Utah PHP Users Group job announcement

SpectrumDNA, Inc
Park City, UT


Senior PHP/MySQL Developer / Architect
$60,000 - $80,000

SpectrumDNA, Inc is searching for a Senior level PHP/MYSQL developer to work with our Park City, Utah team architecting and building applications and features for our array of web and wireless "engines of engagement." We have a cool set-up, great lifestyle, funding and some really cool properties.

WE WILL ONLY CONSIDER candidates who have a strong background in software development, PHP, and MYSQL and who are interested in a full-time startup opportunity.

NO recruiters thank you.


SpectrumDNA, Inc. is a studio/incubator/investor for next-generation consumer and business digital networked applications for the web and mobile wireless. The DNA stands for "Digital Networked Applications." These applications are often referred to as Web 2.0 applications, web engines, networked engines or "enginets"-- networked applications delivered via networked media (like Web and wireless) that are designed to engage a target audience around a particular type of human behavior, like dating, creating, sharing of content, social networking, ecommerce, etc.

We are a studio building multiple web/wireless enterprises. We've codified a methodology for conceiving, developing, launching, promoting and monetizing enginets. We've also implemented lean, agile-adaptive management/programming techniques that allow us to quickly change our enginets, sometimes within days, to adapt to partner/customer demands, or market forces. We apply these methodologies and expertise to continuously build and maintain a strong portfolio. If you become a member of our core development team, you will need to be at home architecting, designing, developing, and optimizing all aspects of our web engines. You will be an integral part of the development team, and be compensated with a mix of cash and equity.

We are a work-hard/play-hard group and believe that doing innovative work, making a lotta money and getting fresh tracks (winter) or finding great single-tracks (summer) are compatible... as long as the work is getting done, of course. It's a great company, great opportunity and a great lifestyle... for the right candidate.


We are a small team looking for depth, drive and experience in each person we hire. We need a Senior PHP/MYSQL developer who can come in and quickly come up to speed on our enginets, ultimately taking over development lead responsibilities on one or more of the projects.

You will be defining architecture, optimizing database usage, assessing scalability of applications, but mostly, cranking out code.
