Drupal powers some of the busiest sites on the web, and can be adapted to virtually any visual design. A career in Drupal can offer a profitable and interesting career path, as well as opportunity to engage in the world’s largest and most active open source community. With this explosion in usage, we experience an ever growing need to hire people to build and maintain these sites. The challenge the community is facing is one of supply and demand. Simply put, there just aren’t enough people to fill the needs. At any given time in the past 6 months, job aggregator Indeed.com had over 2,500 open positions across the US for Drupal talent.
How do we close the gap? Find the people with the right passion and grow their talent from the inside-out. We're not looking for people with years and years of Drupal experience. We're looking for people who are curious, motivated, determined, and who can inspire a little crazy in us all. At Acquia, culture and a person's POTENTIAL to contribute and grow with us matters. A lot. These are the underpinnings of a successful candidate.
