Job Description:

The Government Health and Safety Solutions Operation is seeking a Drupal/PHP Web Developer in Bethesda, MD.

General Summary This position requires the candidate to take on a technical role in the design, implementation and maintenance of a Content Management System (CMS) powered by Drupal 8. This role involves creating complex implementations of processes and features using Symfony PHP framework and JavaScript.

Close, careful, and scrupulous attention to detail and quality under tight deadline constraints is essential. Experience in PHP, and specifically Symfony is required.

Excellent communications skills are also a must, as the candidate will interface with a variety of academic researchers, senior staff, government customers, and contractor support personnel on a regular basis. The successful candidate will have excellent written, presentation and verbal communication skills and will be accustomed to working in a dynamic high-tech environment.
