Job Description

I am looking for a talented, fast, efficient and accurate developer to help me lift off an existing desktop software! The software is a download manager. There are some drawbacks on the latest released version and many missing features. Our current programmer does great work but he has been assigned with new projects and he have no time enough to continuously optimizing and upgrading it.

Then, you will be assigned to create plugins for a start and you will be be paid at minimum hourly rates, that is 3$/h. If you are an outstanding developer, you will be given the code to rebuild it and if you bring results we can re-negotiate your remuneration. So, this really is an opportunity for you to show what you can do!

Even when the project is completed, we may have ongoing coding and maintenance work for you on a part-time basis or even full-time if a new project arise.
