Project Description:
Highly experienced (5yrs+) PHP web developer wanted for on-going work on well established popular English travel / photo-sharing site.
Lots of ongoing work for the right highly experienced and reliable candidate or company.

This position will suit either a solo developer, or a full team of offshore developers/designers with a proven track record for great development and design.
You must be able to provide examples of your work and references.

You'll be diving straight into a LARGE customised codebase, so you'll need to be versatile in your approach, and extremely focused with an ability to familiarise yourself with other peoples code quickly.

Core Skills needed:
PHP 4 and 5, AJAX, JavaScript, MySQL, Database design, application design/development, CMS development.
Basic web design/layout skills using CSS are also very important, so that jobs can be completed in full.
You will also be working with various API's including Google Maps and certain hotel reservation systems. We also have a custom built forum, which needs additional work and functionality added.

Your main focus will be adding new functionality and features to our popular community based photo sharing website.

This position will suit someone who can work remotely and can dedicate at least 25 hours a week to our project. We are not looking for someone to work onsite, so location is not a problem.
You will need a good level of English, and you'll be expected to be readily available online via MSN messenger to discuss jobs and give important updates when required.
The most important thing to us is reliability and experience. If you lack either one, please do not apply, you will be wasting our time and yours.

Successful applicants will be expected to setup a development platform on their own system which we can then access to approve work before it is transferred over to live site.

We look forward to receiving your bids.
The first job (what you are bidding on now) -

You will be given access to the files so you can setup a dev platform of our site on your own system, but in a limited version. You will then be required to familiarise yourself with the codebase, its URL structure and existing classes, and of course the extensive database.
The first job will be to create a stand-alone advanced 'Picture Search' system, offering visitors an easy way of viewing images from our database using various search methods, and then presenting the results (images and text) in various styles.
When building any new sections on our site, there are several things need consideration such as the URL class structure, user(member) privilages, and other things we will inform you of in the full brief. You will need to be able to think 'Outside the box' so to speak, and take in many considerations when building new applications for the site.

Please place your bids, and good luck!
All work will be under NDA. Thank you.
