About the Client

Elektron Technology is a global technology group that designs, manufactures and markets products which are vital to a connected world. From ground-breaking ophthalmic screening that could save your eyesight, to connectors that carry power and data signals through the most hazardous and challenging environments, their products are about solving pressing problems through lateral thinking, practical engineering and cutting-edge technology.

Our Challenge

  • Create a web solution that incorporated content from all of the Elektron group's brands.
  • Integrate a feed of available vacancies from across the Elektron group, with filter functionality.
  • Liase with Elektron's in-house team to ensure a swift and effective handover of the site.

The Solution

  • Produce a responsive Drupal 7 multisite which included sites for six of Elektron's brands.
  • Build a custom module which tweaked the colour palette used for each site's theme to give each brand an independent identity while maintaining a consistent 'look and feel' across the group's sites.
  • Use the feeds module to scrape the other group sites for new vacancies, and then add external filters so that users can view jobs near their location or in a particular sector of interest.
  • Delivered developer-level training to Elektron's team to enable them to administer the system effectively.
