We’re O3 World, an industry leader in building digital products and transformative, innovative experiences. We utilize design, strategy, marketing, and technology to deliver cohesive and remarkable experiences across the customer journey.
We’re looking for a Senior Back-End Developer to be a subject matter expert in designing and building web applications, customer-facing APIs and backend services. Reporting to the Director of Engineering, you’ll provide additional leadership to project development teams, and contribute to new business development by supporting clients with their technical questions. You will collaborate with our Client Services, Experience Design, and Engineering teams to create applications with an eye towards scalability, flexibility and ease of maintenance.
Right now we're leveraging technology to stay connected and we're interviewing all of our candidates virtually. Our entire team is working remotely for now, and we're open to interviewing candidates who are willing and able to work within Eastern Time Zone business hours (9AM - 5PM EST).
Who You Are:
An expert back-end developer and tenacious problem-solver. “We’ve always done it this way” isn’t in your vocabulary.
Detail-oriented, able to deliver high-quality work and technical documentation.
Diligent and accountable, you hold yourself and your team to high standards of quality.
A player-coach, willing and able to contribute to sprint deliverables while serving as a resource to teammates and junior engineers.
A dependable communicator, you follow through on your commitments and proactively communicate status updates.
Courageous, willing to advocate for standards and best practices.
A curious, lifelong learner who seeks out opportunities to try new things.
What You’ll Do:
Design, build and deploy applications and features utilizing a variety of CMSs (Drupal specifically, but you'll also interface with Wordpress, and Craft) and application development frameworks.
Guide technical discussions with clients, establishing technical requirements and presenting architecture recommendations based on business needs.
Develop CMS-based websites and create custom Drupal modules.
Build with security in mind, advocate for security and data integrity across project teams.
Contribute to DevOps and automation.
Collaborate with project teams to research and recommend application architectures.
Provide project estimates, meet with clients, and evaluate RFPs.
Positively impact the culture of O3 World by establishing and fostering cross-functional relationships and mentoring other engineers.
To be successful in this role, we need you to have:
At least 5 years of professional working experience with back-end development.
Experience with open-source CMS systems. Significant Drupal experience is required.
At least 1 year of experience leading the technical recommendations to clients or internal teams.
Experience leading Scrum/Agile projects.
Experience integrating third party APIs.
Experience working in a cross-functional team structure (engineers, experience designers, project managers, QA).
Experience with enterprise development and communication tools (such as Github, Jira, Confluence, Slack).
Why work at O3?
You’ll be a part of an “always growing” team. We support innovation, personal development, and mentorship.
We’ve worked hard to foster an environment of mutual respect, where you’ll be treated like a peer regardless of title or seniority.
You’ll find no drama here. We surround ourselves with good-natured, honest, hard-working people. That goes for our employees and our client partners.
We don’t do egos, so no one person can “be” O3. We are a team.
You’ll build partnerships, not just complete projects. We take the next 5% and go above and beyond for our clients, and each other.
O3 World specializes in digital product design and development, from conceptualization through implementation and support. O3 is an equal opportunity employer (EOE). We value diversity and are committed to creating an inclusive environment for all employees. We look forward to meeting with you.
