Looking for an experienced Drupal developer. You will work closely with me in setting up a website from scratch based on an extensive conceptualization and simple mock-ups. You must be proficient in Drupal, be able to use Drupal modules, and (to a limited degree) be able to extend this to create some custom functionality and features. There is a registered domain but no hosting yet.
The website is a platform for language learning and teaching. Users must register as a member of the platform. The platform is a library of learning contents and materials, as well as a community of learners/users. The interactions on the platform matter most to enable learning – between the content, between content and people, and between people. Content is modular. The CMS organises and delivers this content to serve learning needs in an intuitive, attractive way, using core Drupal functionality. The website has interactive features such as member profiles, a blog, comments, and social media.
You should have expertise in large-scale CMS (potential for thousands of pages and users), with experience in both back-end and front-end development. Basic design skills are required, primarily to facilitate UI/UX (not necessarily high-end graphic design for marketing ends). You should have excellent communication skills (in English), with a strong collaborative approach and a flexible, problem-solving mindset (project requirements may change as the site is being built, and not every last detail has necessarily been thought through yet). Your own inputs and ideas are encouraged. Experience with educational websites is a plus but not required; experience with wikis and user-generated inputs or social networks is a plus.
Extensive specifications are available for you to review if you satisfy the basic requirements, and to agree on the precise scope of the work, which has a flexible timeframe. Narrative documents as well as wireframes and other assets are available. This is a phased, long-term project with strong potential for additional work in the future. This first phase is about creating a minimum viable product. Show More
