TL;DR: Locastic is looking for PHP/Symfony experts with previous experience in building custom backend systems. Preferably you are based in Split, but we’re also open to remote candidates with a gross salary range from 18-25.000 HRK. Fill the form below with some previous work and we’ll get in touch in a day or two.
It’s that time of year where we search for smart and passionate Symfony developers to join our team. Our salespeople are kind of stubborn, we can’t really tell them to stop getting new clients – so we decided to go with a different route and try to find new developers to work with. Are you a person who likes to have an impact and work on complex backend systems? You are at the right place!
Locastic is a software development team that develops web and mobile apps for our amazing clients, ranging from award-winning startups like Omolab, up to large enterprise brands including Cedevita, A1, Tommy, GFNY, PBZ, and Daikin.
Most of us are based in sunny Split, but we are open to remote work; so for example – Stephane prefers the comfort of his own home in France, as well as other colleagues working from Zagreb, Hammam Sousse, Graz, Chennai. Ultimately, you can work from anywhere, as long as your tasks from Jira are finding their way to the DONE section.

What’s in it for you?
Money, for starters. Your monthly salary will range from 18.000 to 25.000 HRK (gross), depending on the level of your previous experience and competence. Since we’re really bad at random guessing, you will need to solve a Symfony-skills test so we can determine how good you actually are.
Apart from that, we offer a variety of challenges. You will become a part of a talented team with a track record of winning awards, but there’s plenty of room for Open-Source work, hackathons, playing games, or investing in your personal development through conferences and workshops.
