Job ID: SU1016
Position: Senior Drupal Developer
BU DAI India
Reportins to Luke Kozumbo
Work Shift Minimum overlap between 9:30am and 11:30am EST.


DAI’s Sustainable Business Group (SBG) has several software products that support its consulting and advisory work in local content. One of its system, the Supplier Registration Portal (SRP) connects local suppliers with buyers and potential procurement opportunities. The SRP, which is built is Drupal, is currently deployed in five countries, with plans to deploy in another 5-10.

SBG is looking for a senior level Drupal developer who can develop new functionality while helping to maintain current installations. This position requires having a broad range of technical skills, while also having the ability to communicate well other non-technical team members.

Main Expectations of the Role

  • Work with the SBG product team to design, spec and implement new application functionality
  • Maintain current SRP installations, fix bugs, and provide support

A full-stack software developer (both frontend and backend) who can create new Drupal modules and modify existing modules. The Senior Drupal Developer should know what can be done via simple Drupal configuration and what needs to be custom build/modified at the code level. He/she should be able to configure Drupal, but also do the custom software development needed to create and modify Drupal modules. The Senior Drupal Developer should also be able to assess the ecosystem of available contrib modules and the potential need to upgrade from Drupal 7 to Drupal 9 sometime in 2020. This update may require significant effort, but Drupal 7 will be End of Life November 2021.

The application is using “Headless Drupal” and has an Angular based front-end for interacting with Drupal (I believe using a REST API). This means the developer will need to know Angular. The production environment uses Docker. The Senior Software Developer should be able to setup and run deployment processes.
