Job Description

The job at hand has a fantastic chance to work in and around upcoming technology in the automation industry. You will be tasked with joining a current project which deals with managing the automated items. The web application is built in AngularJS with a custom-built backend, made for REST connectivity via Laravel. As seen further below the two primary languages are PHP and JavaScript. Data is stored in MySQL. Whilst the project is currently part way through, we are also looking for fresh ideas.

Currently the project aims to be a fleet management system for a collection of automated pods. These pods are aiming to be the next generation in travelling around busy and vibrant cities. The current development team have made a web application which lets you log in securely, and manage the overall POD data. You can view, add, delete, list fleets of Pods. Further upon this, marquee features such as a map displaying PODS behaviour and PODS showing their statistical data needs to be improved.

A good chunk of the core functionality has already been bundled in. But more staff are required to help elevate and improve the web application and API. We are looking for people who can hit the ground running and help move this project to its final stages. The system that is built has the chance to be redeployed for further business ventures as per an exploitation plan.

Responsibilities

  • Continue development on a project which is ongoing
  • Be able to design, develop and maintain reusable code on both the Laravel API and AngularJS WebApp
  • Have good documentation skills, specifically for the Laravel API
  • Be able to communicate with partners of the project
