Drupal / PHP Developer

You know your way around Drupal so well that you'd be head of the Metropolitan Museum of Drupal, if it existed. It doesn't. But lucky for you, this brand-new position at meltmedia does: Senior Drupal Developer. We're assembling a crew of the most passionate Drupal devs in town, and we need you to help lead the charge. You'll have a hand in driving how we do business using Drupal, from both technical and non-technical standpoints. You'll bedazzle us all with your technical chops, but find true satisfaction in sharing that talent with clients, project stakeholders, sales teams, and junior team members alike. You'll take pride in building, maintaining, and supporting the best Drupal-based websites and applications around. Through it all, you'll remain undeterred by challenges, Drupal 8, and packs of semi-domesticated canines roving about the office.

  • Communicate effectively directly with clients
  • Collaborate with cross disciplinary teams to ensure we are delivering the best possible solution given the needs and constraints of the project

  • Promote and facilitate company best practices
  • Research and improve technology, skills, and process
  • Teach and mentor other developers
  • Work closely with our UX team to establish, build and maintain a standard set of Acquia Site Studio components that can be reused on multiple sites
