Software Developer (part-time)

REfficient REfficient

Online reuse marketplace for businesses - we match buyers with companies' surplus. Companies save money and the environment. Champion of the RE movement.

We’re looking for a part-time as-needed Software Developer to assist with building some new functionality for our platform and troubleshooting any issues that arise.  We would prefer someone more local to Hamilton.
Given our existing platform, here are the core skill sets we’d need:


  • Excellent knowledge of PHP and MySQL, working in a LAMP environment- someone who can look at out existing platform and get a handle on it pretty quickly
  • Good knowledge of HTML, CSS, and Javascript
  • Knowledge of CodeIgniter preferable


Here are the responsibilities:


  • Plan and build new reporting/functionality – an imminent project is building some customer-facing reporting
  • Troubleshoot any issues
  • Update front-end website content, as needs arise
  • Help develop a proactive, preventative technology plan
  • Assist with other general IT issues, as needed


This is a part-time, as-needed, project-based opportunity. Someone who already works fulltime is perfectly fine, if they are comfortable doing this after-hours; they would just need to communicate expectations on turnaround time. In the last little while, it’s been on average 5-10 hours/month, depending on what we have going on. We’re also looking for someone who can do this for an extended period of time (ex. 1-2+ years), as it may take a while to get familiar with our platform and process.
