Digital Garden is looking for an experienced, confident, Drupal Lead to join our team.

We are looking for a person with energy and a true passion for Drupal particularly around backend development. 

You will be working with TOP CLIENTS and a highly TALENTED team of Project Managers, UX / UI designers, and developers who all share a love of design and all things digital. Some of the key clients that we have worked within the past 12 months include UTS, Macquarie University, Thomson Reuters, Department of Justice NSW, APRA, the Law Society of NSW, Doctors Health Fund, GradAustralia, Surf Life Saving NSW, GPT Property Group and McDonald Jones Homes. 

We are located in the Surry Hills area where there are loads of cool cafes, places to hang out and just a general creative vibe. We also have ping-pong battles, and drinks on a Friday.

The right mindset

Even if you don't tick every box of the above experience, more important to us is that you understand any business-case needs of our clients - from a non-technical aspect.  

Our ideal applicant will be results driven, adaptable, works well with a team, manages time and multitasks well, and presents and explains complex development ideas to clients and colleagues.

If you're a Drupal developer who knows your stuff and can tech lead projects, write meticulous tech specs and help pitch to prospective clients, we'd love to hear from you.
