Job Overview

Our team of talented software developers exists to create new consumer experiences that are found on desktop and mobile devices for our major media, sports, and entertainment clients. As part of our team you will have the opportunity to work on multiple projects throughout the year, developing a platform of reusable components and advanced web platforms that bring together the best of what this industry craves.

The Senior Drupal Developer will analyze, design, implement, test, and maintain software systems to support our clients’ projects, as well as facilitate Drupal development with off-site partners. A key part of your responsibilities will include full participation in our development process, estimating tasks, working to meet team commitments, and tight interaction with the Product Owners. This is your chance to work with a team of talented software professionals in a progressive company growing beyond its startup roots.

Primary Qualifications

This is a senior level position with high expectations for your proficiency and autonomy as a strong Drupal developer. Specifically, we are looking for:

  • Participate in the full life-cycle of software development, including requirements gathering, estimation, development, testing and support.
  • Provide clear technical direction and conduct oversight on work accomplished by off-site third parties.
  • Stay informed on trends in related technical fields and the Drupal community.
  • Proficient Drupal, PHP, JavaScript, and HTML skills (at least 5 years)
  • Experience building custom modules and themes
  • Experience hosting Drupal on a shared server
  • Competence with a wide range of web development technologies (HTML, JavaScript, CSS) and frameworks such as Backbone or Angular
  • Experience with a wide range of content management systems
  • Competence with the command line
  • Experience with mySQL replication, backup, and query optimization
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills
  • Willingness to mentor junior developers
  • Self-motivated: able to break through technical hurdles with minimal supervision.
  • Demonstrable problem-solving related experience involving customer service, analysis, and decision-making

  • You are comfortable carrying big responsibility within a small team.
  • You’re a dedicated team player who takes the team’s commitments as least as seriously as you take your own.
  • You’re a relentless, proficient bug-basher who applies extra energy toward deploying finished, high-quality solutions.
  • You enjoy helping others learn and succeed.
  • You understand that there is more to a company’s long-term success than great programming, but you know that it’s awfully hard without it.
  • You live for the moments when your team’s contributions, and your own work, make a big, positive impact on your company’s health.
  • You are able to work effectively with individuals with different viewpoints, backgrounds, and locations
