This is an excellent opportunity to develop the applications and infrastructure of the UK’s leading sports camp provider for children. Serving a young market, we constantly need to update and develop our systems, use the latest technologies and integrate with new online services.

Our main systems are hosted on Amazon AWS using EC2 and RDS services using a standard LAMP stack. Our solutions required maintenance of PHP code, MySQL queries, Apache configurations as well as an understanding of frameworks like WordPress and CakePHP. We integrate these with authentication services from Microsoft Azure and document services from Google.
At our head office we run a typical Windows domain architecture, using Hyper-V 2012 R2 virtualised servers running Windows 2012. This also supports a number of CentOS servers for local development and runs our Asterisk phone system.
