ABOUT OUR COMPANY

Kanopi Studios is a Design, Development & Support Agency with a fully distributed team of 45 people who are experts in Drupal & WordPress.

We design, build, and support websites for clients who want to make a positive impact.

All done with craftsmanship, a bit of whimsy, and the desire for a better web.

As our business continues to grow rapidly, so does our team. That said, we also work with a number of amazing contract humans to supplement the work we do - that's why we are looking for a contract Drupal Developer!

 
ABOUT THE FOUNDER

Anne Stefanyk, CEO/Founder

It was the love of the open source community and the direct need she saw for an agency focused around customer success that drove Anne to build Kanopi.

She envisioned Kanopi’s workplace to be a place where the clients and employees alike would feel connected and supported. A place where she could feel 100% confident that every detail of every project would be covered. She imagined a place where all who engaged with Kanopi would feel surprised and delighted by the day-to-day operations.

With that vision in mind, Kanopi Studios was born. Kanopi Studios is now a team of 45 people, where 95% of our business comes from word of mouth and referrals. Kanopi is about good work with good people creating a better web for everyone.

ABOUT THE COMPENSATION & WORK REQUIREMENTS
