A clever Job Post written in PHP for for a PHP developer. Thought I would share.

Hello, I came across this job advertisement for a PHP developer and the advert was written in PHP. Thought it was a good way to advertise the role.


  $youArray = array(
    "Passionate about doing things the right way",
    "Building scalable, high availability apps",
    "Using the best and the latest technologies",
    "An eye for user experience",
    "A collection of star wars lego figures (kidding)"

  $usArray = array (
    "Friendly and exciting atmosphere",
    "Modern office space in an amazing Georgian house",
    "We are Marlow based",
    "Top spec hardware",
    "A flat management structure",
    "Awesome homemade cakes and baked goodies on a regular basis"

  $downsidesArray = array(); // QA Fail - doubt will we ever use this empty array.
  foreach ($youArray as $thingsWeLikeInPeople) {
    $a[] = explode(" ",$thingsWeLikeInPeople);

  foreach ($usArray as $thingsYouWillLove) {
    $b[] = explode(" ",$thingsYouWillLove);

  $whyYouShouldJoinUsArray = array($b[2][0],$a[2][5][1].$a[3][2][2].$a[0][0][9],$b[5][0]);
  echo "You should work with us, because " . implode($whyYouShouldJoinUsArray, " ");

A good way to filter out bad candidates before they step through the door?

That's pretty bad ass, dude. ;)
