Office Location: Austin, TX  – No telecommuting

About the Role:

Founded in June 2003, Kinesis is the established world leader for online panel and survey management software. Our end-to-end online panel and survey management platform solution powers the projects that are the lifeblood of market research by automating panel management processes and supporting simultaneous mobile, tablet, and desktop device interaction for market research firms and companies of all sizes.

This position will be an integral part of a small team developing at a sustainable pace. We have a casual (shorts and t-shirts), open (no cubes here), non-political environment. Our ideal candidate will be experienced enough to have opinions, but open to new ideas and alternate well-reasoned viewpoints. We’re looking for someone that values execution and is willing to mentor (and be mentored by) their peers. Expect to make a valued and meaningful contribution quickly.

Salaries are generous and compensation packages include a 401k with company match, medical and vision insurance, paid holidays, and ample vacation time. This is a hands-on coding role. You will write code during the screening process.

This role is 100% on-site in Austin, Texas – no telecommuting or remote working. Relocation assistance is not available for this position.

Minimum Qualifications:
• Able to build and maintain interactive high-traffic web applications using object-oriented PHP.
• Able to define SQL schemas with foreign key constraints, write select and update queries with complex table joins, and implement triggers and transactions.
• Able to identify and follow generally accepted object-oriented design principles.
• Able to identify and communicate using common design patterns.
• Able to distinguish between and implement unit, functional, and acceptance tests.
• Able to select and create efficient algorithms and data structures based on sound computer science principles and modern software engineering techniques (this probably requires a CS degree to learn).
• Able to manage source code using a distributed version control system (e.g. Hg, Git, etc.).
• Able to work comfortably in a Linux development and deployment environment.
• 3 to 5 years of professional software development experience.

Desired Knowledge and Abilities:
