This trial day work is offered as part of an opportunity to work in the same role but as a permanent and full time member of staff with Small Axe's team in Colombo. If you are not able to take a position under these conditions please do not accept the invitation for the trial day.
Drupal Theming: working with designers and product owners to build dynamic web layouts in the most efficient and extendable way. This requires that you have a very good understanding of concepts such as themes, theme hooks, templates, css grids, sass and css3. It is also important that as we build out sites we are aware of standards such as W3C, AIM and are able to comply.
Drupal Site building: going hand in hand with theming, you would be required to build functionality using the CMS; it is vital that we do as much as possible with the resources available and turn to custom development as the last rather than the first resort.
Customising Drupal: where necessary you should be able to delve into the inner workings of the content management system and either tweak items to achieve additional customisations or write custom code. We are keen about contributing back to the community so this would mean that we also make time to provide fixes or testing effort back to the modules we use.
