You will work with a strong group of other Software Application Developers in a LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) environment.

How to apply:

Email your resume in a word document and code sample attention to Elizabeth at email eraymond@smartertravelmedia.com

Please provide a 200 - 500 line code sample using object-oriented design, preferably in PHP, but another OO language is fine, which shows your ability and complexity of development experience. The code sample can be part of a larger program and does not need to be stand alone run-able. Please be sure to include a class file or equivalent, and code that uses that class.

**Please do not send any zip files, our mail server just rejects files that end in .zip -- so just zip it up and rename it to (e.g.) .piz, then mention in the email to rename it to .zip before trying to open it.
