Seeking passionate PHP developers

You will be part of a team that delivers a best-in-class experience for our audience.  If you are an energetic problem solver who is comfortable wearing many hats and getting stuff done right the first time, this may be the right fit for you.

If you like the idea of building innovative and custom features, improving and advancing existing features, and ensuring operational excellence – for a company whose core mission is to help people find the best solutions for their ongoing health problems – you should talk to us.  We are looking for strong problem solvers to help us tackle the big and the small, including projects such as (actual projects in the queue):

  • Creating custom Drupal modules while leveraging a common code base (Drupal profile/distribution) that streamlines development across multiple sites.
  • Flexable, snapshotable Virtualbox where you can get your hands dirty with our efficient 4-layer caching system on a LEMP stack, all without blowing up a production server.
  • Crafting and testing site features for desktop and mobile to improve traffic metrics and advertising revenue.
  • Creation of an author portal, media asset management utility, and an automated advertising system.
  • Enhancements to our new forums system in (Vanilla Forums).

After all, this is a company dedicated to personal health.
