Thoughts on this concept???

We are building a new application and are just at the point of thinking about how all of the pieces in the real world might map to Drupal concepts and I figured we may as well throw this out there for comments.

Backend Talent Needed ASAP

Hi Oly/Seattle and Chicago Drupal folks. I am posting this in the hopes that someone local has a bit of time and the skill to assist us.

We have a project for a major NFL fan site that has a very tight timeline and we could really use another pair of hands on the backend API integration pieces.

We have a lead developer and would very much like to add another to supplement and meet the deadline of July 24.

Please email cmcgrath@celebratedrupal.com to discuss rate and availability. Thanks!

Summer Drupal Work

Hello Drupal Oly folks! We are getting really busy and wondered if there were any junior resources out there, that know CSS (maybe some SASS) and basic Drupal site building and had some time to offer this summer. From there who knows it could grow into more we are a growing organization.

We are a virtual workplace but could meet regularly and or have you work from our location a few days.

Pay would be based on experience and the job would be a contract role. Please email your resume and or get in touch with bmcgrath@celebratedrupal.com

Difficulty Finding Folks with Drupal Experience

I'm just curious if anybody has any observations to share regarding difficulty in finding people with Drupal experience. We've had a position that's been hard to fill (still open) even looking for more generic web developer candidates. This might just be a sign of the state falling behind the salary curve but I'm thinking that adding Drupal specific requirements might just make that worse.

As an aside, we may have an opportunity for a full or part-time project position for someone with Drupal site building experience if any of you know of someone in the Olympia area that might be interested.
