Fantastic opportunity for a Drupal Engineer to join an exciting development agency and take on a pivotal role in driving the business forward.

Rohallion is a Drupal-powered agency, based in Scotland, that works with NGOs, governments, charities, policymakers and other purpose-driven organisations to disseminate knowledge in an efficient and scalable way. We offer a highly personable and collaborative delivery process for clients that enables them to deliver positive change for a better world.

We’re looking for an engineer who is ambitious, hard-working, dedicated, professional and goes above and beyond in the pursuit of delivering stand-out solutions that help clients achieve their goals. As the successful candidate will be given the freedom to think creatively and be able to communicate your technical approach at an appropriate level, for mixed audiences, including clients. You will be expected to continuously develop your area of expertise and will be supported in this so that you grow alongside the team. You will be working closely with the Directors in all stages of a project from conceptual thinking and generation of ideas to concept development, briefing sessions, contributing to writing technical specifications and estimates, demos, retrospectives, and planning meetings, and everything in between.

You’ll be expected to support and help drive projects forward, predominantly on either backend or frontend development but with the versatility to support the full-stack when needed. You will be delivering work to a high standard and within deadlines – bringing together a passion for ideas, with a relentless eye for detail. If you are naturally proactive and look to take the initiative with clear opinions and execution, then please apply.

In return, we’ll make sure there’s a friendly, helpful, and rewarding environment. We want someone to grow with the business and so career progression is important to us here.

The contract is for an initial 6 months working part-time (17.5 to 25 hours depending on the candidate circumstances) with the vision to make it permanent for the right candidate. The role would be remote working although the possibility of co-working space local to the successful candidate could be considered.
