We need an experienced freelancer for work with the LinkedIn and Google + APIs. Developers should have experience with JSON formats and HTTP transport. Strong English communication skills are a must, as is previous experience with social APIs. Experience in php and C# are preferred, but not necessary.
The freelancer should obtain any accounts or API keys needed to prototype this work. We are open to choice of scripting language. The code can output to Excel, store in mySQL, or can create a set of CSVs containing the data. Code should be able to access public feeds for specified brand pages and should be able to return data on posts, comments and +1s, public activities and users. Code should be robust enough to handle rate limiting and other errors, but this project is in the prototyping stage, so completely autonomous code is not necessary, and request volumes should be low. Code should be able to handle pagination without loss of data. Responses should be obtained in JSON. Choice of JSON parser is up to coder.
The freelancer should detail any API limits and places where returned data differs from the data displayed in a browser, along with possible fixes and workarounds. See the attached spreadsheet for a more detailed spec on the output.
