Drupal Development Engineer (Full Time)

at RAFT in Cambridge, MA   —   Jul 05, 2014   |  
*Company Description*
BioRAFT ( is a quickly growing company focused on building an enterprise level web-based application used in university and pharmaceutical research centers across the country. We aim to make labs safer, more efficient, and help them comply with pesky regulations. We make safety seem sexy.

*Why work for us?*
(1) We support a work hard, play hard mentality -- we pay well, give great benefits and support your need for a flexible work schedule.
(2) We empower our engineers to make an impact -- as a developer you will drive from the front-seat our product direction, technical strategy, implementation choices, and operational decisions.
(3) We are young and growing - we are small now, but growing fast in 2012. Get on board now and help us set the direction for our future!

*Job Description*
In this role, you will actively take part in driving the architecture, design, and development of our flagship product, which is built on the Drupal CMS. You will participate in a wide variety of projects, from developing brand-new customer facing functionality, to refactoring and optimizing the nuts and bolts of our internal platform. This work will keep you active in the Drupal community; debugging existing contrib modules and contributing back some of your own. You will be expected to participate in relevant user groups, and attend local meet-ups, camps, and conferences.

As a small company we rely heavily on the dependability and initiative of our employees to get work done under sometimes aggressive deadlines. We are a small team, and the ability to cooperate and communicate is an absolute must. You will be expected to make and suggest decisions regarding both your code and others. You will need to be comfortable both giving and receiving honest and direct feedback.

Last but not least, we expect you to grow in your career. We are a young company and the lines of responsibility are often blurred. We want people that are excited about the opportunity to do and learn things that may be outside their normal areas of expertise. If you’ve ever said “that’s not my job”, or pointed a finger when something failed - walk away now.
