Drupal Technical Architect

Ontario, Canada


The Drupal Technical Architect (TA) is responsible for the end-to-end technical solution to meet the scope of a project. Utilizing Portage’s project delivery expeditors: Freeflow and Accelerate, the TA ensures the technical solution proposed is aligned with UX/UI vision/wireframes so the full solution presented to the customer is succinct.

During the life of the project, the TA will continue to ensure the technical blueprint, also known as the technical specification solution (‘tech spec’) outlined is sufficient to meet the project scope. If changes are needed, the TA will work with the project team to update the tech spec as required, always ensuring it meets the contracted project scope. The final tech spec should match the final solution that is delivered for the project. This will serve as an important project artifact to build off of for further opportunities with the customer.

Further, this tech spec is a key deliverable of the TA as it outlines the Drupal solution that meets the scope of the project. The tech spec is used by the project team to outline the necessary tasks to deliver, and helps build out the project plan/timeline to ensure the project is delivered efficiently, on time, on budget and on quality.
