We are hiring a Drupal Developer

Are you a talented Drupal developer, looking for your next challenge? Perhaps you're keen to experience development within a respected web development agency, or looking for opportunities to work on bigger, more interesting projects?

We are looking for an experienced Drupal developer to join the CMS team at White October where you'll be part of Oxford's most exciting web development agency.

The Job

You'll join a team of bright, energetic developers, keen to explore and share the latest web and mobile technology.

Your main toolset will be Drupal (with new builds typically in Drupal 8), but as an agency we are technology agnostic and like to pick the right tools for each job. In the CMS team we also use Perch, and other teams use Symfony2, node.js, and Angular.

Typically projects at White October last from 3 to 6 months, involving teams of up to 6 developers and designers working in close contact with the client to regularly deliver working software.

The Person

You will be a mid level developer with a demonstrable talent for web software development, and a proven ability to architect & deliver large scale web projects working as part of a team. We'll expect you to be an excellent communicator, able to collaborate with team members on solutions and keep project managers up to date on progress and setbacks. You'll be a conscientious developer, seeking out responsibility and taking a share of ownership in the quality of the wider project, not just your tasks.

While being a full stack Drupal developer your primary skills will be in back end Drupal development, knowing when to extend contrib modules and how to develop your own. You will have a track record of contributing back to the community and a couple of modules under your belt. A good working knowledge of JavaScript would be desirable, and you should know your way around HTML and CSS.

Our Culture

COLLABORATIVE: We enjoy coming together to solve problems almost as much as sharing what we learn.

OPEN: We are a dedicated team who are honest, trustworthy and responsible.

FLEXIBLE: We have fun, work productively and take pride in everything we do.

SOCIAL: We are curious to explore new ideas, find innovative solutions and not afraid to learn as we go.

  • Drupal initial setup, optimisation, and testing.

Desirable Experience

  • Experience using automated testing frameworks
  • Experience of Acquia or similar dedicated Drupal hosting
  • Javascript, CSS, and HTML, with an understanding of industry best-practice, including accessibility and progressive enhancement.
  • Experience of building web-based software in PHP frameworks.
