If you’re part of the Drupal community, you know that contribution is a great way to expand your skills and hands-on experience, make connections in the community, and make Drupal better.

Sometimes the barrier to making code contributions feels high. But in fact, non-code contributions are equally important. If you’re passionate about marketing and communications, and looking to contribute through writing, design, translation, or leading and managing marketing efforts, the Promote Drupal Initiative is recruiting for several positions.

The Promote Drupal initiative exists to:

  • Create content and marketing materials targeted to decision-makers who are considering adopting Drupal

  • Use events to drive the expansion of Drupal adoption and the Drupal community

  • Create social media content and campaigns to position Drupal as a thought leader

At the moment, we’re recruiting for several positions, including DrupalCon

  • DrupalCon Marketing and Outreach Committee Member - You want to support the success of DrupalCon through outreach to both potential and returning attendees.    

  • 20th Birthday Committee Member - You want to highlight the 20 years of achievements and success of the Drupal project and community throughout 2021

  • Drupal Ambassador - You are looking for opportunities to promote Drupal in other communities and at conferences outside the bubble.    

  • Drupal Initiative Marketing Lead - You are passionate about Drupal’s innovation and want to highlight the work of the project initiatives.    

  • Drupal Social Media Team Member - You want to improve Drupal’s social media presence on an on-going basis.    

  • Drupal Evaluator Marketing Team Member - You want to improve Drupal’s onboarding experience for evaluators.    

You can review the details of these opportunities and fill in our recruitment form to help match you with the right position.

The wide-ranging benefits of contributing to Promote Drupal include:

  • Official contribution credits

  • Expansion of marketing skills and open source audience awareness to leverage in other marketing positions

  • Position you and your organization as a Drupal and open source thought leader at the center of one of the world’s largest and most-successful open source projects

  • Expansion of your network of open source and technology leaders in the Drupal community

  • Hands-on experience marketing virtual conferences and insight into attendee personas

  • Joy of creating positive community engagement

  • Enjoy recognition for your service (exposure for both your personal brand and your company/organization)

The Promote Drupal initiative is looking for input from decision makers who play a role in selecting the content management system (CMS) or digital experience platform of choice for their organization. We want to better understand the pain points and the key decision criteria evaluators use in selecting a content management system.

We’ve put together a survey that you can share with your network. We encourage you to invite Drupal end-users as well as any contacts who have selected a different technology for their website. We’ll share the results with the community in the form of an anonymized report, and use the feedback to improve marketing materials for Drupal.

Here’s a quick message you can use to promote the survey to your contacts:

Fill out this quick survey from the Promote Drupal Initiative to tell us how you select which technology platform for your website.

The survey only takes 5 minutes, and you might learn a thing or two about your own decision-making criteria in the process. Whether or not you’ve decided to build your website with Drupal, your input would be incredibly valuable.

Why Are We Doing This?

The survey feedback will greatly facilitate the work of the Promote Drupal initiative. It will help us create more relevant resources and on-boarding materials for those evaluating Drupal.

Every voice matters! We want to get the perspective of evaluators who are looking at Drupal from technical and marketing perspectives and are able to provide honest and actionable insights. We would love to hear from as broad an audience as possible so that we can make the evaluation process more accessible to decision makers with expertise in different areas.

What is Promote Drupal?

The Promote Drupal initiative creates branding and marketing materials to spread the word about Drupal, drawing on the expertise of agencies and Drupal users around the world. If you would like to contribute to the Promote Drupal initiative in any way, you can check out some of our past projects (e.g. the pitch deck with over 70 Drupal case studies).

You can publish a case study, help with translating materials, or help us design resources. The best way to start, is to join the #promotedrupal channel on slack.drupal.org and get the conversation going there.
