Project Description

Our intranet is the place for nearly 1,000 employees to get the information they need to do their jobs, learn more about their colleagues and their work, and learn about policies, events, deadlines, and awards. The intranet has grown organically over the years and now it needs someone to take some gardening sheers to it and organize it logically. The platform is Drupal 8. We expect that our intern will have knowledge of web usability and architecture (or a willingness to learn very quickly); the ability to recommend changes based on user feedback, analytics, and other best practices; and proficiency at communicating those changes using wire frames or a similar tool.
