Hi, I'm Scott

I am a Senior Drupal Developer with more than 15 years experience in front-end and back-end development.

 

My Story

I started a boutique Web Design / Development agency in 2005, and specialized in the custom stuff, projects that businesses couldn't seem to find a developer who could deliver their vision. I've worked with many frameworks, from CakePHP to Magento, opensource and proprietary LMSes, even OSCommerce ( once upon a time ). After developing my own PHP framework, I discovered Drupal and never looked back. I even went so far as to create a WordPress plugin to make it just a bit more like Drupal.

As an active member of the Drupal community, I co-maintain Commerce Printful, contribute patches, help in the issue queues, and present at DrupalCamp ATL (2020, 2016). I enjoy helping others learn Drupal as well as expanding my own capabilities.

Building an agency taught me business skills beyond software development. I learned to build and manage a team ( at one time employing 2 devs, a designer, and a copywriter ), run profitable projects, and hone my communication skills, particularly with non-developer stakeholders. These skills could add a lot of value to your organization.

After 15 years operating Scott Sawyer Consulting, I am ready for a new challenge. I am seeking a Senior Drupal Developer position at a great company or organization. Ideally, it will be a place where my skills and experience can make a positive impact. I'd love to work with other professionals that share my passion for creating and collaborating. If that is you, please contact me. I am available immediately.
