Back End Developer (Freelance/Contractor)

We work with freelance Drupal developers on a consistent basis. Contractors provide ongoing support of our clients’ websites and applications, usually in Drupal 7 and 8.

As a contract Back-end Developer you would:

  • Implement requirements described in a technical plan, including database, PHP code, and module development.
  • Participate in code reviews.
  • Support existing sites via our support ticket system.
  • Run security updates for Drupal core and contrib.

You must:

  • Be located in a timezone that overlaps at least four hours with business hours of the continental United States.

You must have most of these qualities:

  • Experience working with custom back-end code in Drupal (alternatively, strong experience with highly overlapping PHP tools like Symfony or Laravel).  This includes things like Services, hooks, and EntityAPI, and Events.
  • Comfort with Drupal’s configuration tools.  This includes things like Views, Field UI, and Entity Browser.
  • Basic understanding of how to work with data in Twig.
  • Familiarity with Drupal’s configuration management tools, either Features, or Configuration Management.

  • Attention to detail. Please start your cover letter/pitch with “Dear Advoteam,” when applying.
  • Experience with collaborative development tools such as Git.
  • Knowledge of the APIs of Drupal Core and Drupal’s top contributed modules (and willing to get your hands dirty on the less familiar parts).
  • Comfortable on the Linux command line, including Drush.
  • Keep up to date on the current tools and trends in Drupal.
  • Strong self-management skills with the ability to organize and manage multiple priorities.

It would be great if you had a few of these qualities, too:

  • Contributing to and playing an active role in the Drupal community.
  • Past work in a client service agency or building tools for mission-driven organizations.
  • Experience working on a distributed team.
