Software Engineer III

Full Time
Mid Level

Modea is seeking a talented, motivated Software Engineer with at least 3 years of experience to join our growing team. As a Software Engineer, you will be focused on using the latest software stacks and cloud technologies to design, implement, test, and continuously deliver new features and products with enterprise scale Content Management Systems (CMS).

What does a Software Engineer do at Modea?

We are digital consultants first, and our software engineers assume this same mentality in all aspects of their work. We tackle client projects as cross-functional teams made up of software engineers, UX designers, project managers, strategists, and analysts. These teams work very closely with each other and the client to architect and build awesome, consumer-grade experiences.

We're currently looking for someone passionate about solving problems with technology and ready to take their game to the next level by building great software. The right person for this role understands what it takes to build and deliver high-quality software and has a strong understanding of software engineering principles.  This is a full-time position.

Here are a few specific things we’d be looking for:

  • CMS Web Experience - Our software engineers need to understand the ins and outs of either the Drupal or WordPress CMS.  Specifically, this includes topics such as content modeling, theming, custom module development, configuration management, search API, migrate API, etc.  While most of our work centers around the latest version (Drupal 10 / WordPress 6), knowledge of the past several versions would be preferable.  Working with headless CMS installs is also a plus.
  • Frontend Web Experience - Our software engineers are required to be efficient at front-end development (HTML, CSS, JavaScript, client side frameworks like React and Angular).
  • DevOps Experience - Our software engineers need to work in multiple environments (local, QA, UAT, production, etc)  with multiple hosts (on prem, Patheon, Acquia, etc.).  We have to integrate with multiple source code hosts (GitHub, GitLab, Bitbucket, MS DevOps, etc.) and work with various pipeline systems.  Knowledge of Docker is a plus.
  • Software Engineering Best Practices - We pride ourselves on delivering quality software solutions, and we rely on following good software engineering best practices. We are looking for someone who will champion this in every aspect of the development and delivery of our work. Be prepared to share what all this encompasses for you and how to build software the right way.

Here is a list of skills and qualities that are required for this role:

  • Have 3+ years of professional software engineering experience with Drupal or WordPress
  • Be a great listener and communicator (oral and written)
  • Be naturally curious and love problem solving
  • Have a consultant mentality in your approach to solving problems.
  • ​Client facing experience is preferred.
  • Be pleasant to work with and a team player
  • Be passionate about software development and ready to share your favorite blogs, authors, development communities, latest technology, etc.
  • Have a mentality of continuous improvement in all that you do individually and as a team member

  • Check out the web analytics and consumer research we completed to help Lurie Children’s drive the design decision-making process and ultimately create a more user-friendly site.
