I have a pretty complicated web dev project that will require some elegant coding. I'm looking for a very reliable, very experienced development team, that has excellent communication and English skills. Must be comfortable with keeping me involved throughout the development of the project. Must be extremely detail-oriented. Must be an expert at protecting from vulnerabilities. All of the above criteria is mandatory. Please don't bother applying if you aren't confident about the above criteria.
Note: Your first bid is irrelevant, as you haven't seen the plan yet.
HOW I WILL CHOOSE FINALISTS:
Bidders that can show me the best evidence of the above criteria will be selected as finalists.
HOW I WILL CHOOSE A DEVELOPER:
I will send finalists the detailed plan and you will review it and give me an initial $ range estimate. If the range is within budget, you will then provide me summary of how each feature will be achieved, and what CMS framework you will use (if custom, I'll need to see examples of the CMS) and languages. We will discuss this together so I know you understand all of the features. I do things this way because I've worked with freelancers in the past who tell me they are capable of completing every detail, but in the end, they miss details or even entire features because they can't do it or underestimate the amount of work required. So again, I'm only looking for serious developers.
Site security is a major priority for this project, so I will need an explanation of how the site will stay secure.
The plan is set and I don't necessarily need your ideas, BUT if you see an alternative to something in my plan that will make coding easier and bring the price down, I will be very happy to hear your suggestions.
Price, experience, thoroughness, honesty, and high communication skills are the most important factors for me. More projects like this down the road if you do the job right.
