We are looking for a developer or team of developers to create our consumer focused website. We would like the site to be built using the latest version of EZ Publish Community version. The site is a mix of product information, ecommerce, news articles and support.
We are not looking for the cheapest price - we are looking for the best value. We expect high quality and professionalism so you must be able to deliver what you say you can and when. Examples of your previous jobs is greatly beneficial.
We want to version able to be developed in a stage environment that will then be copied into production. We would like development to be completed 6-8 weeks after project start. This can be negotiated. Core front end elements will be made available (HTML, CSS). The site must be compatible with all browsers and IE versions 6+. Limiting jQuery and other dynamic functionality to be enhancing versus required is essential. We want the site to still perform if someone has java script disabled. Please refrain from using Flash.
As we are based in Europe, it is critical to be available at some part of the day between 9am and 4pm CET.
We are an international company that supports 12 locales plus international. We also support 10 languages. The site must allow the user to select language and this should default by their web setting. Location must be detected by IP as this needs to drive the price and promotions that are presented to the customer.
We have about 80 percent of the design completed with the front page completed in basic HTML, CSS and jQuery. If it is easier to work with self generated HTML and CSS, please include that in your bid.
