Drupal Developer

Axelerant has identified a burning problem: the lack of Open Source support with a focus on customer success. A U.S. based partner, fueling clients with agile development solutions since 2005, we are committed to solving this problem with our distributed workforce and a global approach to Open Source community contribution and thought leadership.

As an Axelerant Drupal Developer, you will be working hard as you would be leading development team for website and application needs of the clients by engaging in hands on tasks to ensure that the deliverables meet defined objectives within the planned timeline and budget. Next, you’ll promote and curate development and process standards.

Beyond communicating early and collaborating often, you will be needed to consistently review, revise and propose strategies to achieve short and long term goals. You are expected to always be open to ideas and feedback. Furthermore, you need to ensure documenting features, technical specifications and infrastructure requirements.

If you’re looking for your exact responsibilities, bah humbug. We're a real world organization, and there're going to be times when the unexpected happens, and you’re going to need to step up. We don’t know what it’s going to be or when, but it’ll be a challenge; it could be boring, or it could be something amazing. Either way we get through together, as a team.

Past the role itself, as a person, when you don’t know the answer or are not sure what’s next, be willing to say such and go find out. If you’ve got something to share, do so, whether in our Slack channels or on our blog.

Ultimately, we’re about getting the right things done at the right time and those who are enthusiastic, open, and giving about whatever they’re masters of, will fit into Axelerant.

We’re an organization with team members spread across multiple cultures and time zones. As such, you must be self-motivated in finding the right things to do and communicating proactively in English with the rest of the team.
