We are a development agency and specialist hosting provider. We specialise in creating and maintaining websites, particularly those with challenging technical requirements. We build using Open Source software and we specialise in managing servers also based on Open Source software, typically Linux, where we provide a consultative approach to help our customers purchase a solution that really fits their needs. Clients include universities, local government departments, charities, the National STEM Centre, the Copernicus climate project, various United Nations affiliates in Vienna, and many more besides.
We are a busy and dynamic company and we pride ourselves in making sure we are a nice place to work. As a distributed company, all our staff work remotely, either from home or a co-working space, which people welcome as a great means for achieving work-life balance and avoiding the daily commute.
We currently have team members in the UK, France, Spain and the Netherlands. Although you'll work remotely, we use online tools to keep the team in constant touch with each other. In fact, new staff often comment that they communicate with colleagues at Code Enigma more than they did when working in an office.
About the job
We are seeking an experienced Drupal developer to slot into our existing team and hit the ground running. You'll work on a wide range of projects and project models. Sometimes it'll be a discrete piece of code, sometimes it'll be an entire website. Sometimes you'll lead the team and sometimes you'll be the team. Sometimes you'll just come in and help out for a few weeks before moving on to other things.
What you’ll be responsible for:
You will be a self-starter and you’ll often work from home (though you’ll be part of a tight “virtual” team, so you’ll talk to people every day). You'll need to have great people skills, because this is, in part at least, a client facing role. You'll own your projects, have confidence in your solutions and be an expert we look to.
You'll have been doing Drupal projects for a few years, and you'll have been doing that in a team environment using professional developer tools. You'll be completely familiar with site building, but also comfortable with writing custom code and modules when necessary. If you've helped maintain code on drupal.org, or participated in the Drupal community, that's a welcome bonus. You'll also be excited by the idea of expanding your knowledge beyond Drupal into other frameworks.
You'll also be up to date with the latest technologies that support you, DevOps, version control, CI, IDEs, testing frameworks, etc. and be pragmatic, but willing to lead on excellence in these areas, to improve the developer experience at Code Enigma.
Just a few more practical points:
You’ll need to have a passport and be willing to travel, but don’t worry, it won’t happen often.
You’ll have to already be eligible to live and work in the UK or the European Union and you’ll also need to be able to speak and write good English.
You don't actually have to be based in the UK, but you do need to be in Europe and near enough to a well-served airport to make travel simple, preferably in the UK, France, Spain or the Netherlands, where we already have a legal presence.
Please be aware we operate a 40 hour working week, as is standard in the UK.
