Are you looking for a serious, complex technical challenge?
This is a fantastic opportunity to join The Baseball Page as we start to grow. We are a baseball content and community site with over 1 million pages of content….and we have barely begun. We need an experienced Drupal professional to join our small team and be the technical inspiration for our next stage of growth.
Our vision is to make The Baseball Page the premier site for baseball fans. But wait…there is more. We have a vision of creating a website unlike any that currently exists, that offer a deeply interactive, unique experience to our users. We need someone who will help us create the technical vision and direction for making The Baseball Page an award winning and highly profitable social website.
We need you to take responsibility for all technical aspects of our site. Our site is currently a mix of out of the box Drupal 6 modules and custom code. Our plan is to continue to add a significant amount of Drupal functionality as well as integrate partner technology. We need a creative, technical savvy, really smart person to help us build a robust, high traffic site.
This will start part time, but we hope to make this a full time position within a few months.
Some things are simple - find the problems, provide solutions then - design, code, test, debug and launch.
Some of our short term projects include upgrading to Drupal 7, rebuilding the baseball stat database (including XML feeds) and the content presentation on the site, adding related content sections to all pages of the site, gamifying the site, tweaking our SEO code and adding a mobile application.
We have lots of ideas for long term projects, but need you to finalize our roadmap.
Being passionate about baseball is a plus.
Considerable database design and management experience

Be an entrepreneurial spirit. We are definitely not corporate America. You must have a strong work ethic with a desire to succeed and build something great
Be an excellent problem solver and a quick, effective implementer
Must have a relevant technical degree
Based on experience/equity
