Cal State Monterey Bay is committed to Drupal, and we're looking for another Drupal developer to help us with some exciting projects both for our campus and higher education in general. Build a few sites in your day with custom modules and themes, all following community best practices? We’d love to hear from you.

What we’re looking for.

This position will be in the trenches writing code, doing testing and continuous integration, and working closely with our team to build amazing projects. We’re looking for someone who:

  • Loves to talk to users, get their feedback on projects, and understand what users want.
  • Can communicate effectively in email and face-to-face with people from across the campus.
  • Write clean code that adheres to quality assurance standards set by the Drupal community.
  • Can see where a business or technical process falls short from intended goals and be able to constructively suggest alternatives.

More specific skills should include:

  • Knowledge of PHP and MySQL, solid foundation in the LAMP stack with some other things like Memcached thrown in.
  • Understanding of version control, especially Git and Subversion.
  • Experience in writing technical documentation with wit and style.

We’d also love to see some extra things in applicants like:

  • Good front-end skills, especially in CSS and jQuery.
  • A track record in the Drupal community - let us know your d.o user name!
  • MySQL DBA skills like handling replication and tuning performance.
  • History of working within Higher Education - it’s a different experience from your standard firm, and knowing the difference can really help.

Why you want to work with us.

We’re a unique team at CSUMB because we have a centralized IT infrastructure - meaning we only work on projects that affect everyone on campus. On top of that, we are committed to returning large projects to the broader community of universities, so most of your work will turn into open source code projects. We’re in Monterey, California, which is pretty spectacular; however, we can also work out telecommuting if moving doesn’t work for you.
