We hired a Drupal core maintainer to contribute to core

I am thrilled to announce that effective today, Drupal core maintainer Nathaniel Catchpole (catch) will be joining Third & Grove. His primary responsibility will be to continue making Drupal 8 better.

Adding Nat to the team will deepen our investment in Drupal, support the growing Drupal community, and further our growing expertise in Drupal 8. What will Nat be working on? I’m not exactly sure as he gets to decide, but I know it’s Drupal core and I know he will now be able to continue making Drupal core great. Welcome Nat!

We love Drupal. We make employee time available to contribute modules and patches back to Drupal.org. We take Drupal standards very seriously. We put every line of Drupal code through a pull request. And we have a proven track record of building large, complex sites efficiently and with high quality. In our first year of business, Acquia named us Most Valuable Partner of 2014. We were asked to present our work on Mint.com with Intuit at Acquia Engage. We are leaders in marrying content and commerce with projects like Dwell and Benefit Cosmetics, Magento and Hybris, and the Magento Module we contributed. We will soon be rolling out one of the first Drupal 8 sites for a global brand, and have several more Drupal 8 sites in development.

“Nat joining the team further strengthens our commitment to innovate through exceptional content engagement,” said Chief Strategy Officer and TAG co-founder Anthony Severo. “We’re looking forward to him leading the Drupal 8 effort to help us reach our goals.”

TAG is one of the fastest growing digital agencies in the United States. Part of the fuel of that growth has been the platform we use most often: Drupal. We were inspired to take this step in investing in Drupal by Dries’ call to action. We are very excited to be able to pay back to the community which has given us so much.

You can read more background on this in our LinkedIn article.

I would like to thank Dries Buytaert, Holly Ross, Angie Byron, Acquia, and the Drupal Association for their outstanding support and leadership in this process.
