The Shifting Gear Management Information System (MIS) is the dashboard application built in Laravel, with a Bootstrap 4 admin panel front-end. It displays the strategic and financially important data from our PostgreSQL database in a visually appealing manner. Our brand promise is that we make the life of our customer easy. One of the things this implies is that we take care of importing their data into our system.

You work in a small, multi-functional agile team. You program the PHP application in an object oriented manner. In the Shifting Gear MIS you will also contribute to mainly new features and components. You integrate systems of new customers and continuously optimise the automation of this process. Last but not least you contribute to the maintenance of our AWS environment.

Real life example

The sprint is going according to schedule. If you finish this 8 pointer today, the team will surely meet the sprint goal. And then you encounter a piece of legacy code of which you know it can be solved in a much better way using a new library. You would be able te remove quite a chunk of code if you make these modifications, especially since you’re already busy with a sizeable refactor. What do you do?
