Senior Drupal Engineer

Modea is seeking a talented, motivated Senior Drupal Engineer with at least 5 years of experience to join our growing team. As a Drupal Engineer, you will be focused on using the latest software stacks and cloud technologies to design, implement, test, and continuously deliver new features and products with enterprise scale Content Management Systems.

What does a Senior Drupal Engineer do at Modea?

We are digital consultants first, and our software engineers assume this same mentality in all aspects of their work. We tackle client projects as cross-functional teams made up of software engineers, UX designers, project managers, strategists, and analysts. These teams work very closely with each other and the client to architect and build awesome, consumer-grade experiences.

We're currently looking for someone passionate about solving problems with technology and ready to take their game to the next level by building great software. The right person for this role understands what it takes to build and deliver high-quality software and has a strong understanding of software engineering principles. 

Here are a few specific things we’d be looking for you to do:

  • Drupal Web Developer - Our software engineers need to understand the ins and outs of the Drupal CMS.  Specifically, this includes topics such as content modeling, theming, custom module development, search API, migrate API, etc.  While most of our work centers around the latest version (D9), knowledge of the past several versions, at least to D7, would be preferable.  Working with headless Drupal installs is also a plus.
  • Frontend Web Developer - Our software engineers are required to be efficient at front-end development (HTML, CSS, JavaScript, client side frameworks like React and Angular).
  • DevOps Developer - Our software engineers need to work in multiple environments (local, QA, UAT, production, etc)  with multiple hosts (on prem, Patheon, Acquia, etc.).  We have to integrate with multiple source code hosts (GitHub, GitLab, Bitbucket, MS DevOps, etc.) and work with various pipeline systems.  Knowledge of Docker is a plus.
  • Software Engineering Best Practices - We pride ourselves on delivering quality software solutions, and we rely on following good software engineering best practices. We are looking for someone who will champion this in every aspect of the development and delivery of our work. Be prepared to share what all this encompasses for you and how to build software the right way.

Here is a list of skills and qualities that are critical to this role:

  • Have 5+ years of professional software engineering experience with Drupal.
  • Be a great listener and communicator (oral and written)
  • Be naturally curious and love problem solving
  • Have a consultant mentality in your approach to solving problems.
  • ​Client facing experience is preferred.
  • Be pleasant to work with and a team player
  • Be passionate about software development and ready to share your favorite blogs, authors, development communities, latest technology, etc.
  • Have a mentality of continuous improvement in all that you do individually and as a team member

Our business and team have consistently grown over the last four years and COVID-19 has dramatically increased the demand for our services. Currently, our office is working remotely and plans to continue until later in 2021, but ultimately, this position would be located at our headquarters in Blacksburg, VA, or in our new location in Nashville, TN.

Who is Modea?

We are a technology consultancy with a mission to infuse greater control, transparency, and choice into the consumer healthcare experience. To do this, we work with large healthcare providers to help them build out a digital roadmap, then design and build mobile, web, and other digital experiences. We fundamentally believe that this work helps consumers have better information and access to care, and our clients to build stronger customer relationships.

Here are a few ways to get to know our work in healthcare:

  • Check out the Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital website. Our team built the entire experience on a cutting-edge, headless CMS implementation.
  • Download the Ballad Health mobile app. We designed this app using the Ionic UI kit and built it on a cross-platform framework for both iOS and Android.
  • Search for a doctor at the Carilion Clinic website. We helped them transform their site experience and digital tools like search and find-a-doc.
  • Flip through this conference presentation deck about some data science work we did with Children’s National.

Our business and team have consistently grown over the last four years and COVID-19 has dramatically increased the demand for our services. Currently, our office is working remotely and plans to continue until later in 2021, but ultimately, this position would be located at our headquarters in Blacksburg, VA, or in our new location in Nashville, TN.

    Here are a few other reasons why you should apply:

    First, you’ll love the work we do and the people you’ll get to do it with. We’ve assembled an exceptionally smart and hardworking team and you’ll enjoy the work associations and general camaraderie with other “Modeans”. We also work with great clients who value us and our contributions. 

    Second, Modea offers a great benefits package that provides both a fun and enjoyable workplace and great perks that will improve your quality of life:

    • Paid time off
    • Team lunches
    • Regular employee events (parties, community service, etc.)
    • Generous health, dental, and vision insurance
    • 401k with fully vested company matching
    • Short term & long term disability

    Some of these benefits, like parties and snacks, have had to adapt to the remote work environment we are currently in, but our operations team has found innovative ways to support our team, from regular care packages to a work-from-home stipend. We take care of our team.

    The working environment here at Modea is one of accountability and autonomy. We are working to solve big problems. So we expect a lot, but give team members the tools, freedom, and flexibility to come up with great solutions. Together, our team is developing world-class technology that will change the way healthcare is delivered. 

    If you’ve read to this point you should probably apply. Not ready? Shoot us a note at with any questions. 

    You must be legally authorized to work in the United States for this position.
