Software Engineer - Drupal Specialist
Company: Kiva - http://www.kiva.org...
Location: 3180 18th St #201, San Francisco, CA 94110
Called the "hottest non-profit on the planet" by FORTUNE magazine and a Top 50 Website by TIME, Kiva (www.kiva.org) is the world's first person-to-person lending marketplace for the poor. In just 4 years, Kiva has raised $100+ million for 300,000+ entrepreneurs in 50+ countries. Kiva combines the culture and approach of an internet start-up with an intense focus on alleviating global poverty. Kiva is poised to take its initial success to a whole new level - targeting $1 billion in loans by 2015 and expansion into new areas (e.g. student loans, climate change, etc). Headquartered in San Francisco, Kiva's team has 50 employees and 500+ volunteers.
You'll assume ownership of our Drupal7 CMS, help us build up from the basics, evangelize the further use of Drupal at Kiva, and take ownership of further iterative development of our Drupal5 review and translation application. Kiva currently operates two Drupal-based applications, one for managing our >250K entrepreneur profiles (Drupal5) and a soon-to-be deployed Drupal7 CMS to handle some of our ever-changing "static" content.
