Our client is a digital transformation business, specialising in web and Drupal. They believe in using the power of the web to make the world a better, more interesting place.

They encourage honesty, transparency, pragmatism, and collaboration. They regularly re-evaluate how they work, based on feedback from clients and their team.

You'll be supported by their experienced back-end team and quickly learn the skills and processes for building sites in a fast-paced agency environment.

You'll get working on client sites quickly and be guided by lead developers on each project, ultimately working towards leading projects yourself.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Building Drupal 8 websites and write bespoke modules to integrate with external services and bend Drupal to our will. As much as possible using Composer, Configuration Management and other ways to smooth development
  • Maintaining the company’s Drupal 7 sites
  • Writing JavaScript with jQuery and other libraries
  • Working with the frontend team to integrate and support their work with tools and knowledge we can pass on.
  • Working with producers to plan and estimate
  • Participating in stand-ups, sprint planning, client show-and-tells
  • Deploying sites and ensure they run smoothly. We're interested in PaaS and using modern hosting to improve our workflow.
  • Completing security reviews.
  • Creating Symfony applications.
  • Sharing knowledge and contributing ideas about how to improve works of working.

The Person:

  • Mainly looking for someone enthusiastic about web development.
  • An interest in back-end web development, particularly PHP and Drupal.
  • Some knowledge of PHP, and as a bonus some awareness of CMSes like Drupal, JavaScript, web application security, server configuration, and git.
  • Must have a portfolio to showcase either professional or personal projects and work.

Our client takes their culture seriously and work to the following principles:

  • The atmosphere here is lively with discussion and debate. Everyone should feel like their voice is valued and heard in these discussions.
  • We make time to help each other, explaining why we are doing something in a certain way, with an understanding that what we are talking about may be outside of the other person’s understanding.
  • We work hard and take what we do seriously. Our clients depend on us to make what they do work. The more they trust us, the more they rely on us, and the more we will work with them.
  • We all make mistakes and admit to them. For this to happen, we all need to accept each other’s mistakes and be supportive rather than blaming them. We focus on what we each need to improve and think of ways that will stop the same mistake in the future, sharing this openly so we can all learn from each other.
  • We all strive to be as good as we possibly can be and take responsibility for our own development. In turn, we will support you and provide as much time and resource to your development as we are able to.
  • We have fun, socialise and make time to do things together because we enjoy it.
