Recently we have been working with a fair few Brightpearl customers, helping them convert their Brightpearl web stores to new sparkly Magento stores.
One really great feature of the Brightpearl Webstore was the ability to add stores and retailers via contact tags.
This store locator type function is vital for manufactures and distributors that are using both Brightpearl and Magento. Thus we've built a Magento extension to help.
Our new Brightpearl Magento Store Finder is now available. As always we're eager for comments and feedback.
Junior (Trainee) developer
THIS POSITION HAS NOW BEEN FILLED
Who are we ?
We write software to help customers tie systems to each other, in essence we automate.
We also do some plain old web development. We don't design, you'll never be required to design anything (unless you want to).
What you'll be doing
Answering customer's questions regarding our extensions and software. We won't throw you in at the deep end and we're not expecting you to be selling anything at all. To start off with you’ll be helping customers with their enquiries. On a busy day that's maybe 5-10 calls. Many days you’ll receive no calls at all.
The majority of your time in the first few weeks will be asking us questions no doubt. We’re ready for that and encourage it.
You’ll be working on non-critical small projects to start with, to both help you learn and allow us to monitor and sculpt your skills.
Eventually we hope you’ll get to the level that you’re comfortable working on small and large projects, as part of a team or alone. With the ability and insight to suggest technologies based on experience and knowledge to suit specific projects.
We don’t require any specific experience.
We do/will however look for indicators that you’d be suitable from your past work. Even if these are hobby projects. In fact, we ourselves got into programming professionally through hobbyist projects, so that’s a big plus in our book.
What you will need
- A decent level of written and spoken English, as you'll be in direct correspondence with clients and customers.
- A thirsty proactive desire to learn
- HTML, CSS and some JS experience
- Experience with SSH/FTP/SFTP
- Basic PHP experience
- Ability to work to time scales
- Ability to answer a telephone without falling off your chair
It would be great if you had, but we by no means expect it
- A decent sense of humour
- An impressive stackoverflow score
- LAMP experience
- Git experience
- A computer science or similar degree
- PHP framework experience (especially CakePHP or Zend)
- Magento experience in any form
- Exposure or understanding of basic Agile methodologies.
- Zendesk experience or experience creating, responding and managing tickets
- Experience with other languages, Pyhton, C/++/# .Net or any other language that sounds either like an animal or some type of pharmaceutical.
What we hope you will become
- A fully fledged agile programming polyglot beast. Programming in multiple languages with the ability to make business based programming decisions. ie. What language is best for specific business cases
- A linux administrating monster, more comfortable under the green and black glow of a console than in the arms of your beloved.
- Ability to grab a bowl, chuck in an API, chuck in 30 minutes of your time and manage to bake something that allows you to check the viability of a project

UPDATE:We have now released an updated version of our MyDPD Magento Extension that is compatible with DPD's latest update.
This update resolves the tracking issues described further on down this page.
If you already have a ticket open, you will be emailed a copy of the latest release before August 28th 2013.
Recently, there was an update released to MyDPD's import functionality changing how rejected shipments are dealt with and also changing how tracking numbers are fed back. As a result of this upgrade from DPD, an issue has occured in our DPD Magento integration extension that is preventing DPD tracking numbers returning successfully to the Magento shipment.
DPD Labels are still printing from Magento successfully, this issue is only effecting tracking numbers being returned to Magento.
This issue is only effecting customers running the below version of the DPD Magento Link application:
We are currently working to resolve this issue and will have an update as soon as possible. If you are using our DPD Magento integration extension and have one of the versions above, please send an email to our helpdesk and we will email you an update as soon as it is available.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
The Mad Capsule Team
If you know anything about what we do, it will be that we like to automate. We like tying systems together to automate work-flow, eliminating as many manual data entry tasks as possible. Sometimes though it is good to do things manually.
If you are not lucky enough to have automatic fraud detection on your Magento website and want to catch suspicious or bad orders in Magento, then our automatic On Hold extension for Magento may help. Here's how it works...
(Depending on your extension preferences) When an order is received, if the shipping and billing address do not match or if the total order value is greater than a set threshold, the Magento order is set to On Hold, flagging the order for manual investigation and or processing.
Are you using world class fulfillment company Webgistix to fulfill your Brightpearl orders? We would hate to think you are entering all of those Birghtpearl Goods Out Notes manually into Brightpearl, especially since our latest cloud based service can automate this process for you.
