Project Description

Our company is starting a new project and very soon we’ll be ready to start interviewing suitable candidates in order to build the team needed to develop a new application.

We wish to discuss the app’s functionality, as well as the technical and feasibility issues with an architect who has the knowledge and experience to work in either a permanent or contractual position on an exciting, and yet challenging new project.

We will need to build a team which consists of an architect, designer, programmer and tester and require highly skilled individuals who have a proven track record in their respective fields.

I am personally very passionate about this project and wish to build a team of professionals who are at the top of their game and who will share my enthusiasm!

The app will be similar to Skype; however their will be some significant differences making it completely unique. More detailed information will be provided at a later stage.


1. The application will be similar to Skype and offer similar functions such as: 1to1 chat, calls, video calls and file transfers;

2. The application must also enable users to make live presentations using ‘video streaming’. Some presentations will be public and free to view, whilst others will be private and viewers will be charged.

The application must be able to function with high user volumes. (For example, a user may present and stream his or her video through the application and if 5,000 other users wish to view the video stream simultaneously, then they are able to do so without any complications and without affecting the quality of the feed);

3. The application must have a payment system incorporated within it, enabling users to upload and exchange credits;

4. The first version must be for: PC’s (Windows & MAC)

5. Versions for: Smart phones (IOS, Android, Windows and Blackberry) Tablets and Smart TV’s must be available at a later stage.

Do you have the capacity, skills and experience to develop such architecture?

If you wish to discuss the opportunity as well as your previous experience, I would be glad to hear from you.

The price we are willing to pay will depend largely on the candidate, your skill set and experience.

I look forward to hearing from you in due course.
