What We’re Looking For
You know how to code in Drupal.
You are familiar and comfortable coding in a Drupal environment (our platform uses Drupal 7).

You have a “can do attitude” and know where to apply your skills to make an impact. You are a problem solver who thinks critically and pays attention to detail.

You’re independently…and a team player.
You're a self-starter -- even if you’re working from home (or a cafe) without the accountability of a group office environment, you'd work just as hard and just as focused. You are committed to keeping our team in the loop so our independent efforts work seamlessly together.

You have experience and education to back you up.
You're a student or recent grad in programming or a related or complimentary field. You have Drupal programming classes and previous Drupal experience under your belt.
