Successful candidates should have at minimum 5 years of experience working as Drupal Developers either as consultants for digital agencies or within professional development teams, building and supporting medium to large-sized Drupal sites.

Open source, agile mindset

Our development process is generally agile, using simple cloud-based tools to facilitate task management, and collaborate with our clients to produce clearly defined project objectives for each sprint of work we undertake.

We devote some work time each month to contribute back to Drupal core, patch contrib modules, and help out in the Drupal community. The successful candidate will have a desire to do the same, or already be contributing back (for example, as a module maintainer). We have ongoing relationships with many of our clients, providing iterative improvements to live sites and applications. Part of your role will involve working with the rest of the team to proactively enhance the user experience of existing sites which we support.

  • Good experience getting Drupal to integrate/synchronise perfectly with third-party services such as: Salesforce (and other CRMs); native apps on mobile devices; SSO solutions; booking systems etc.

  • Experience of custom module development (only where absolutely essential), patching, and commenting contributions back to the Drupal community.

  • Aspiration to learn and constantly develop your skills, sharing new ideas, tools and approaches with our dev team.

  • Excellent communication skills.

Desirable

  • Symfony experience.

  • BDD experience. Understanding of how to write and implement acceptance tests for iterative development on a live site.

  • Experience of other technologies such as Java, PHP, JavaScript, Wordpress, node.js, angular.js etc.
