Starting Your PHP Career

As a recent graduate or an accomplished self-taught student of web development, it’s all too clear to see that in the modern world of programming, finding a first job is all too challenging.

Here at AYKO we want to change that.

We see a huge amount of value in people and, with that being the case, have designed a full 6-month internal graduate scheme designed to build up the required knowledge, experience, and confidence to begin one’s journey on the career ladder.

We don’t require that you have 5 years of experience for a graduate role, that you have memorised every PHP version release by heart, or that you have previously built an e-commerce platform for a billion-pound company.

All that we require is the right person with the right mindset with hunger for long-term success and evidence of PHP OO programming knowledge.

Every successful applicant is given a 6-month internal course, a graduation leading to a job offer as a junior within the company, an initial 3-5 year plan for becoming a Mid-level developer, and all the tools necessary to go beyond.

If you want to be part of the AYKO family and believe that you are the right person for the role, please apply now for an initial 15-minute interview.

We look forward to hearing from you!
