Senior Web Developer
Accepting requirements

One of the best kept secrets in Utah Valley is looking for a great PHP programmer to join its development team. DigiCert is a certificate authority located in Lindon, Utah.  As one of the largest and fastest growing certificate authorities in the world, we issue digital certificates that are used to secure websites with SSL/TLS encryption. We count Facebook, Yahoo!, AT&T, BMW, and Sony among our 45,000 customers.  (We say best kept secret, but we’ve won a few awards—Inc. 500, Best of State, UV50—so that might not be very honest.)

Required skills:
Required skills:
* Expert knowledge of LAMP, especially the M and P.  The more experience the better.
* Write clean HTML and CSS. Familiar with Web Standards.
* Good understanding of JavaScript and AJAX. JQuery experience a plus.
* Know how to write secure code, with knowledge of web security and common security flaws in software.
* Know how to write efficient code, how to troubleshoot problems, and how to optimize code that needs it.

Your personality:
* You are self-motivated, manage your time well, and get things done.
* You pride yourself on building solutions that are both elegant and practical.
* You don't need much handholding or supervision to be productive.
* You are a quick learner.  We want someone to hit the ground running, learn our existing system, and start getting stuff done.
* You work well with others, regardless of their position of authority.
* Basically, we're looking to hire someone who will make us look back and say, "Wow, hiring that person was a REALLY great move on our part.  We are so smart!"

Other bonuses:
* Familiarity with version control systems
* Broad experience: other programming languages, OS platforms, web technologies, etc.
* Nunchucks, computer hacking skills -- we're looking for someone "Dynamite" with a good sense of humor, who will not call us out on the fact that we've been using the same basic job listing since back when Napoleon Dynamite references were still funny.

Required experience:
* 5+ years relevant experience.
* BS strongly preferred.

As one of the fastest growing companies in Utah County, DigiCert provides a fun, casual, and flexible environment. Additionally, we offer extremely competitive compensation and provide generous medical, dental, and disability benefits, along with a 401(k) plan with employer match and a flexible spending plan.
