We are looking for an experience Wordpress developer that can help us with our transition to a WordPress platform running the job board plugin Jobroller. We need the existing capabilities from our current site programmed into a new Wordpress plugin that will work with JobRoller Theme.
So far three other developers from Freelancer have attempted this project with zero results which wasted a month of my time. If you do not understand this specification 100% please do not bid or waste my time any further.
* Additional Features that we need implemented into a JobRoller compatible plugin.
API Features - Our current site allows our customers to access job postings remotely via XML, JS, or JSON. This is currently handled by the class.Api.php file. This needs to be implemented in WordPress. Examples and more information can be found at http://jobshouts.com/widgets/
Feeds - THE INTERNAL WORDPRESS FEEDS WILL NOT WORK!!! We currently have four job aggregate sites that parse our database to update our jobs onto Indeed, Simply Hired, Juju, and twitjobsearch.com. This was custom developed a couple years ago and we need this capability in Wordpress to perform exactly as it does now including correct URL feed locations (NO EXCEPTIONS). Example http://jobshouts.com/rss/indeed. This is our feed that we send to Indeed to attract traffic to job postings. We also need feed locations at http://jobshouts.com/rss/simplyhired, /rss/juju/ and /rss/twitjobsearch.
Attached you will find files that were purchased to have an Indeed compatible feed. (tpl-xml.php, jobfeedgenerator.php, and jobfeedgenerator-admin.php) You will be using these as a road map and guidance for how our new plugin should be setup and configured.
Twitter and Facebook Employer Integration. This need to be implemented into the employer's dashboard section of our new site. When an employer is logged into the site, they need to be able to open a job listing and have the option of sending a tweet or posting an update to their facebook page related to the current job listing they are working on. In addition they could have the option available to them from the active job list
Here is our environment.
New development environment is located at http://jobs-in-chicago.info. This will be your test and development staging site. Once plugin is finished and testing has been signed off on it will be used on 52 additional job boards at different URL's. Server is CentOS, Hostgator VPS
You will have access to our development and staging server, the code and DB schema. The time to completion? This project must be done by July 20th, 2013 for testing and approval
Attached are the PHP classes and files for our existing feeds. There is also a couple files from an existing plugin called JobFeedGenerator that was designed for Jobroller to be indexed by Indeed, however it does not output the correct feed structure like our current site.It should be very easy for a competent Wordpress developer to build this plugin in a couple days.
Do not ask for payments in advance, we were burned by a Freelancer this way already and will NOT send advance payment again.
