About the project
The frontend and CMS are made up of Drupal 9. We use Docker to build one image for Drupal, which is then expanded with custom modules. Using a minimum amount of contributed modules (just one) we have built a very efficient tool that allows our content managers to be twice as productive as our competitors. The toolchain is up to date, running the latest version on Ubuntu 20.04.
The vacant position focuses on taking ownership of this product, enhancing or replacing existing code, and expanding it with new modules for features that have been requested by the content managers. As such, it fits best for a person that can take an idea and iterate on it in collaboration with the content managers. You will have access to Analytics and transactional data, so you can participate in the business discussions if you like.
You’ll be assisted by our designer, who has built the theme we are using, and an experienced system administrator. But it is expected that you know how to configure and tune the parts directly related to PHP, e.g. PHP-FPM, OpCache etc.
About the team:
We try to learn new things every day, improve our skills, and spend our time where we are sure it delivers actual business value. We have moved to an architecture with microservices and containerized applications, in order to be less tied to specific frameworks and languages and to be able to experiment more. Drupal is obviously a big monolith, but a lot of back-office services run separately. We value tests and clear code over documentation. We are more worried about shipping too late than too early.
