We are starting a business (a import/export “directory” site) where we need a suitable webdeveloper to partner with us and build a B2B website that is similar to Alibaba.com. Our website will not be as complex as Alibaba though.
Basically the website will have following needs:
-Good search function, where you can search for companies that is registered on the site (it is like a directory)
-Be able to register as a member/user or a company/supplier (companies/suppliers must be validated before appearing on the site)
-Very good and simple design (a little like thefind.com)
-Very easily navigated
-Payment functions for membership on the site (API integration: the developer will be required to develop a custom API function which will involve paypal, credit card checkout and payments for the subscription membership.)
-Suppliers/companies should be able to pay for more and better functions on the site (like an own store, better position in the search results etc)
-Translation/Multiple languages (only English in the beginning)
-Clean and visually appealing interface and scalable coding
You need to have:
1. Good communication skills - critical
2. We prefer a developer based in Europe.
3. Several years experience coding with a portfolio to back it up (hardcore backend skills)
4. Good english
5. Good attitude, easy going and motivated
6. Time to work and create this website in your “free time”
7. Great work ethics (hard worker)
Shortly about the opportunity:
There are companies in this industry that is valued at billions of dollars - but there is also small companies with a market value at millions of dollars. We will enter a market with untapped potential, and in the beginning we will not compete with those big companies and focus on other markets. This will help us create momentum and a strong customer base before going against bigger competitors.
Me and my business partner know how to execute this business and how to differentiate us from the competition. Those companies are poorly managed and still are doing very well.
You will be a partner and receive equity in the company and only a symbolic amount of money upfront. You will have a potential to earn a lot of money in the long-term.
We will also have built into the partnership agreement a percentage of the net profit paid to you until a predetermined amount is reached.
Only serious bidders please.
