Project Description

We are seeking a expert-level WordPress developer. YOU NEED TO BE AN EXPERT.

You should have a solid background in programming, and should have many years in programming before you started working with WordPress.
Your programming should be extremely clean and well commented, and you should know how to build file structures to minimize server usage.
You must also have extensive experience analyzing, debugging, and fixing other developers' work, as you will be asked many times to complete projects that have gone wrong, or were left partially completed.

You must enjoy making sure that the wp-admin stays looking as clean and as WordPress as possible. We don't like "new" styles in the wp-admin. It needs to always look like what we created came with the default WordPress installation. Attached you will find an example of a customized WordPress area that we did. You need to be as good or better than this.

You need to be FAST and EFFICIENT. We have worked with many developers and we know the signs of bad development well. You need to also know your core PHP, AJAX, JS, jQuery, mySQL outside the WordPress environment as well as inside. You need to be the type of developer who would rather code new functionality quickly then continue adding more and more free plugins. We don't like most free plugins, and we try not to use them.

You need to be the type of developer who checks and tests all their work and feels embarrassed when they built something and it does not work correctly. And you must work hard to not be in an embarrassing position.

If you're used to offering excuses for not doing things properly, or not meeting deadlines, then we won't work well together. We prefer independent contractors, so if you're a team we probably won't respond to your bid.

Preference given to developers who are online most of the day, and are comfortable working with tight deadlines. Please do not bid if you only work during regular business hours, only 8 hours a day. Please do not bid if you do not work on weekends.

This is an ongoing agreement. If you are hired we will discuss the requirement, agree on milestones, then complete requirements, then you'll be paid. And we will continue doing this over and over to complete incoming requirements from numerous projects. We would like this to lead to a salaried position, so if you're NOT looking for a salaried position, please do not bid.

Additionally, the amount of your bid is not relevant at this time, and if you are warded the project you may be changing it after we discuss the first assignment.

Thanks for your time, and good luck.
