Project Description

We require a social media app backend server.
You will work together with one or more client-side developers (mobile devices mostly).
Frontend and backend development will occur simultaneously.
Possibility of using socket programming alongside REST API for more advanced/optimised networking, so knowledge of that is likely to be required.

The tools and language(s) used to make the server will be up to you. Python or another high-level language highly encouraged.
The server must be able to scale well, up to millions of users, potentially tens or hundreds of thousands of active connections.
Efficiency and reliability are a must. The server functionality will primarily be:
• user management
• user content management: images, text, geo-coordinates
• ability to query server by geo-location
• interface with external servers for: verification of signatures of in-app purchases, sending 'messages' to clients (mobile devices) through a third party.

Using/Building atop existing and proven OSS solutions is encouraged.

Naturally, good coding practices are a must. Attention to detail, ability to debug and deliver on time. Please include the word 'yes' in the title of your bid to indicate you have read this. If you are the manager of a team of developers, it is possible we will be paying up to three developers simultaneously for expedited development.
Please include a message with your bid detailing how you qualify and any other skills that should be considered towards your advantage.

Thank you
