Current Opportunities

Contract PHP Web Developer

Job description

We’re looking for a web developer to do occasional work for us maintaining and modifying components for a LAMP / Joomla website.

This is a contract position that will require occasional work on specific tasks.

This is a work-from-home / casual position.

What we’re looking for

We’re looking for a PHP developer familiar with the Apache / PHP / MySQL / Joomla web stack, (https://www.joomla.org/). We need someone to make changes to overrides to Joomla core files. In our case, we are also using the YooTheme Page Builder (https://yootheme.com/page-builder), which uses the Joomla override system. If you’ve worked with this kind of environment in the past, the job will be trivial. If not, general familiarity with PHP and open CMS platforms like Joomla or Drupal should be sufficient.

For the first contract, we wish to make some changes to apply changes made to Joomla override files to allow a YooTheme Page Builder update to be applied while maintaining site customizations that have been made using an older version of the software.

If this contract works out, there will be additional ongoing contracts for website customization and updates.

Duties Include

  • Set up and test a local copy of the Kongsberg Geospatial website
  • Use Beyond Compare or a similar tool to identify changes to Joomla core files
  • Identify how to make similar changes using the latest builds of Joomla
  • Apply and test changes, verify that the new site build looks and behaves the same as the current build
  • Apply and upload the changes to the live site
  • Test the new site to verify all components are working properly

You Have

  • A Canadian security clearance or eligibility to obtain one
  • A post-secondary degree in a field related to Computer Science or Engineering or equivalent relevant experience
  • Minimum 3 years experience in with PHP website development
  • Capacity to work independently on short term contracts
  • Tools or methodology to update and report on project tasks

Experience in the following areas:

  • PHP web development
  • CSS for responsive design
  • Experience with Bootstrap or other common UI foundations
  • Experience with open-source CMS platforms like Joomla or Drupal

It Would be Great if You Have...

Experience in some of the following areas depending on the project and role:

Contract Web Security Consultant

Job description

We’re looking for a website security consultant to do occasional work for us reviewing the deployment of our public website and suggesting and / or implementing changes to help prevent interruption of availability or the execution of malicious code.

This is a contract position that will require occasional work on specific tasks.

This is a work-from-home / casual position.

What we’re looking for

We’re looking for a website security consultant to look at our public facing website and provide a security audit and recommendations for security procedures to prevent data loss or the successful execution of malicious code (such as the installation of spam SMTP scripts).

Our website is pretty typical of those for mid-size companies: we have a website running on a Joomla / LAMP stack, on a commercial web host that uses cPanel for site management. In our case, we use BlueHost’s dedicated hosting features.

While we maintain site backups and regularly update our open-source site components, we have noticed a steady drumbeat of attacks on our site, probing us with common exploits for popular CMS platforms and site configurations. We want to make certain that we are doing everything appropriate, and possible within the limitations of our technology stack to ensure that our site is not compromised.

We are especially concerned about the possibility of our primary domain being blacklisted in the event that an attacker successfully implements an SMTP spam script. Since we are a defense technology company, it would be detrimental to our brand if our website falls victim to a common exploit.

While commercial web hosts like ours do implement organizational security, we are not able to evaluate how effective their security is.

We would like an audit of our deployment, and recommendations for hardening and maintaining our site security.

The good news is that this is a simple brochureware website, with no ecommerce components and no online client or consumer data that can be stolen or compromised. For this reason, this is a small engagement that should only take a few days to complete.

Duties Include

  • Examine the current website technology stack (with the understanding that we do not intend to replace the current site)
  • Talk with the hosting support team to determine and evaluate the security implemented at their organizational level
  • Make recommendations for any immediate changes or hardening required
  • Create a strategy for ongoing security procedures and site updates (in addition to those already in place)
  • Create a disaster recovery strategy in the event of a successful hack

You Have

  • A Canadian security clearance or eligibility to obtain one
  • A post-secondary degree in a field related to Computer Science or Engineering or equivalent relevant experience
  • Demonstrated experience with popular open source CMS platforms like Joomla and Drupal
  • Demonstrated knowledge of commercial website hosting services like GoDaddy and BlueHost

Experience in the following areas:

  • Common website security strategies
  • Enterprise website security practices

It Would be Great if You Have...

Experience in some of the following areas depending on the project and role:

  • Experience with or knowledge of the cPanel ecosystem
  • Experience with disaster recovery in the event of site hacks, domain blacklists and other similar incidents
