Spiral Scout is a full-service software development company based in San Francisco, with remote employees all over the globe. Our custom software solutions are used by 168 of the top 200 Forbes Global companies and we have 4.9 out of 5-star ratings on

As a company, we’re proud to actively support and contribute to the open-source software community. Our Spiral Framework, RoadRunner and Cycle ORM are used by millions of people each day. We are looking to build our team with curious, passionate, and intelligent problem-solvers that take ownership of their work and are great teammates to work with.

We appreciate PHP and its capabilities and strive to make it even better and more useful, so we created the Spiral Framework for PHP.

Spiral is a component-based, full-stack framework that we've been developing for over eleven years, serving over a hundred real-world projects. Unlike other frameworks it’s build to function using resident memory approach, its advantage is that allows you to run PHP at tremendous speeds (ten times faster than usual) and gives you access to tools like queues, Kafka, Temporal, and lots more.

The software package is based on many open source libraries, including RoadRunner and Cycle ORM, Symfony packages and etc.

We want to develop our product further and show developers from all over the world what the Spiral Framework is, how to work with it, and most importantly, how much easier and more enjoyable it makes working with PHP.

Therefore, our RnD team is now looking for a Developer Advocate to join our team at Spiral Scout and help promote our high performance PHP Spiral Framework and RoadRunner application server. The ideal candidate will have a passion for open source software, experience working with PHP and application server technology, as well as a proven track record of creating public technical content. As a Developer Advocate, you will be responsible for building relationships with developers and the community, creating and curating content, and representing the Spiral Framework and RoadRunner at events and conferences.
