Bridgeborn, Inc. is looking for a PHP/Drupal developer to join our team in Arlington, VA to support the development and maintenance of Globalwaters.org. Globalwaters.org is a central component of a larger Communications and Knowledge Management project for the USAID Water office. The website was recently launched in July 2017, and is undergoing the next wave of design and feature enhancements. This is a great time to get on board to help define the future of the site -- how do we create a better user experience, how do we take the data we have or need and make it into useful information by which USAID can help create a more secure water future around the world. Data visualization is in our near term future.
