Hi Everyone,

I was contacted by a former client who is now at the DSHS in Olympia. They are looking for a front-end Drupal developer for a 6 month contract. I am just passing this along and don't know much more than this.

Ideally they would to hire someone as opposed to sign a contract with a vendor and are open to freelancers. He said the person wouldn’t have to be in the office in Olympia 100% of the time, but would like to see someone down there 1-3x a week.

Here’s a description of the position.
