  • Drupal Developer
    Drupal 8, Drupal 7, CiviCRM, HTML, CSS, jQuery
    We are a rapidly growing advocacy organization looking to rebuild our website in Drupal. The look and feel of the site will be redesigned, so the ideal candidate for this position will be an experienced Drupal developer that can build out the HTML/CSS/JavaScript front-end, handle the Drupal implementation, and integrate CiviCRM as the donor management solution.

Successful candidates should be extremely strong, self-driven technologists who are confident problem solvers and can explain complex concepts clearly.
  • Developer for Drupal 7 Project Database
    Drupal 7, PHP, HTML5, CSS3, GitLab
    We're an urban planning and architecture advocacy nonprofit, and our website was recently redesigned in Drupal 7 last summer. Now, we need an experienced Drupal 7 developer to build a project database for the site, which will hold urban design and architecture projects. The database will need to be architected to allow us to tag projects with categories, and then later generate pages (content views) from all projects marked with a particular category. Users must also be able to upload their own projects to the database by filling in fields and uploading photos. You will also need to handle the import of 100+ projects into the newly architected database, and should also build functionality for users to do keyword searches within the database.
  • Senior Drupal Developer
