🚀 Get ready for an exciting opportunity to join Oomph as a Senior Back-end Drupal Developer!

In this role, you'll meet client business needs by architecting and developing robust and efficient Drupal-based websites and applications and integrating those solutions with a wide range of external systems.

You'll be joining a vibrant team working on website and application projects, as well as maintenance. As the most senior back-end developer on your squad, you'll be the go-to person for support and direction, mentoring junior developers and taking charge of complex development tasks.

The three most important responsibilities in your future role will include:

1️⃣ Writing high-quality code that effectively addresses the client's needs and requirements.

2️⃣ Working at a fast pace to deliver projects on time while maintaining excellent standards.

3️⃣ Providing support and guidance to less experienced team members, helping them grow and develop their skills.

More specifically, within this role, you will:

  • 🏗️ Design and implement solution architectures
  • 🔒 Ensure application security and data protection
  • ⚡ Optimize application performance and responsiveness
  • 🛠️ Conduct technical troubleshooting and analysis
  • 🔗 Integrate systems and manage their interactions
  • 🌐 Develop APIs to facilitate data exchange and communication
  • 📥 Handle data migration into Drupal from other systems, including earlier Drupal versions
  • 📝 Produce comprehensive technical documentation
  • 😊 Maintain client satisfaction through high-quality work and positive interactions
  • 🛡️ Perform software patching and updating to keep systems secure and up-to-date
  • 💻 Write high-quality code that meets client expectations

Core job functions include:

  • 🤝 Actively collaborating with project team members daily to identify technical solutions
  • 📐 Documenting, outlining, diagramming, or drafting system specifications to describe what you and sometimes others will develop
  • 🚀 Developing technical solutions using back-end technologies, often integrating Drupal with 3rd party systems via APIs
  • ⏱️ Estimating tasks before beginning work on them, providing updates on progress and flagging risks to budget and timeline

While Oomph-specific training will be provided, you're expected to hit the ground running with your Drupal module development skills and other relevant expertise. The onboarding process will provide you with an opportunity to meet your teammates, familiarize yourself with the company's processes, undergo security training, and start diving into exciting client work.

As a Senior Back-end Drupal Developer at Oomph, you'll be more than just an individual contributor. You'll be an integral part of a team where engagement and collaboration are highly valued. The ideal candidate is not someone who merely focuses on their own tasks, but someone who actively interacts with their squad mates and other members within the organization. At Oomph, the team believes in fostering a culture where the growth and support of others are highly valued. So, if you're someone who enjoys being part of a team, sharing your knowledge, and uplifting others, this is the perfect opportunity for you to thrive!

  • ⏲️ Proficiency in accurately tracking time spent on assignments
  • 📢 Ability to provide updates on the progress/status of assignments in Jira and/or Slack
  • 🚀 A knack for identifying ways to improve team efficiency and productivity
