Are you our new
php back-end development intern



We are looking for an intern with PHP knowledge to assist our Development team. At E-sites Caribbean we devote every day to making digital solutions better, faster, and easier. Do you want to learn more about programming languages and are you always eager to discover new techniques? Then we have a diverse internship for you! 

What you’ll be doing:
Together with the team you are responsible for the complete development process of a website or online application. From concept and design, to development, testing, and maintenance. Always delivering top-notch quality. Primarily you are responsible for the back-end development of projects and the quality of the delivered back-end. To be successful and optimize your learning curve, an intern supervisor will provide you sufficient and substantive support. 

  • You will be part of a multi-disciplinary team of 8-10 developers and marketers to develop customized solutions using the scrum methodology.
  • You will work on the development and programming of custom applications.
  • You will translate the questions and wishes of our clients to a (back-end) solution.
  • You will primarily be engaged in the design and implementation of websites, applications, and other digital solutions.
  • You are able to quickly recognize and document a problem or challenge in the system. In case of problems, we expect you to be able to effectively debug the code of the project in order to get to the core of the problem easily.

  • A proven track record in programming with PHP, MySQL and OO, and preferably MVC.
  • Experience in creating complex back-end web solutions in PHP.
  • Demonstrable knowledge of open source frameworks such as Symfony, Magento, Drupal 8.
  • Strong analytical and problem solving skills.
  • You’re able to design from scratch. However, you also know where to find existing tooling or sources, which make your work easier.
  • You love to build cool new things, but don’t have the intention to reinvent the wheel for the tenth time.
  • You enjoy working on several (short-term) projects simultaneously. You need that variety. And if you’re bored? Then you ask if anyone can use your help!
  • Maybe you have experience in setting up your own website, app or concept.

Okay, so now you know what skills we expect, but your personality is just as important to us. We are all fun and games, but when we have to work, we get to it! We help to bring out the best in each other. Being successful is the best feeling there is! We like to go the extra mile for that.

What’s in it for you?
Working on Curacao is the best of both worlds. During the week you work in a relaxed but dynamic atmosphere, in an industry that is rapidly developing in the Caribbean region. You’ll spend your weekends outside, with fantastic beach weather and parties all year round. You will be working for great clients such as Dammers, Curinde, Surinam Airways, Cpost, Kooyman, Government of Curacao, Assuria Insurance, Kuldipsingh, and Kersten. Of course we offer a nice benefits package and you’ll work in an energetic and international working environment.
