Senior Drupal Engineer

San Luis Obispo, CA Dallas, TX Remote

Hi, we’re Hathway!

Headquartered on California’s beautiful Central Coast in San Luis Obispo, with a fast-growing office in high-tech and bustling Dallas, our company is a unique blend of talent, clients, dreams and the aspiration to connect brands with people.

Job Overview

Hathway is looking for a Senior Drupal Engineer that can be a strong technical leader on Drupal projects during both the design and implementation phases of projects. This person will also contribute to Hathway’s standards and best practices for internal use of Drupal, ensuring that we’re building Drupal sites that look and perform beyond customer’s expectations. This person should have intimate knowledge of how Drupal works and what it does best, and be able to apply those concepts when designing and building sites for our customers.

This position will be a fantastic opportunity for career growth in the company, as Hathway’s Drupal business has been skyrocketing over the past 2 years and we’re looking for people that want to play a part in guiding our Drupal practice so we can scale up and handle even more business in the coming years.


  • Work with strategy and design to architect Drupal solutions that meet the needs of some of Hathway’s largest customers, making sure to take the platform’s strengths and weaknesses into account to ensure it can be built within the identified budget
  • Provide strong leadership to both junior and senior Drupal developers, continuously driving the quality of coding standards upwards through documentation and introduction of new tools & processes
  • Contribute to projects as an architect and/or a team leader to drive momentum of the projects forward from day 1 of the project
  • Generate realistic project estimates and proposed architectures that make technological and business sense and set up projects to succeed from the beginning
  • Review and contribute to product designs and specifications for Drupal projects
  • Work with other Drupal engineers to guide Hathway’s Drupal development process and best practices used across all projects
  • Ensure code reviews and unit testing are being executed on every project
  • Responsible for giving product demos to internal and external stakeholders on a weekly basis


  • 7+ years of experience in Drupal & PHP and at least 1 year of tech lead experience on Drupal projects, with recent experience on Drupal 8+
  • A candidate who has experience designing & building simple brochure sites as well as sites with complex backend functionality
  • Someone who understands the strengths of the Drupal 8+ platform and designs and implements sites that play into those strengths
  • Someone who can effectively communicate engineering concepts to others through both verbal & written communication forms, and can create technical documents that outline a site plan so that others can execute on it
  • Someone who has worked on an Agile development team and works well in a fast-paced environment with other highly capable teammates.
  • An ability to gauge the technical experience level of other engineers and ensure that tasks that are assigned to those engineers fit their skill sets
  • Advanced level PHP5, MySQL and HTML/CSS/AJAX/JavaScript skills

Additional Perks

  • The opportunity to contribute to high-impact, high-visibility, and high-quality software products with hundreds of thousands of daily users
  • An open, transparent and fun work culture
  • Flexibility and opportunity to work remotely, dependent on state
  • A culture dedicated to professional growth, with continuing education enrichment, including paid certifications and subscriptions on training and education platforms
