We also do Server / system admin.
Over the past several years we've been working a lot with WordPress.
My team is currently comprised of all virtual workers working from home all over the world. Currently have 1 full time worker based in Florida and a server admin based in Belgium.
The rest of the team is on project-basis as-needed and is just several graphic designers / coders / PHP programmers that I have worked with over the years that I contact as necessary and based on their availability.
I have tried a few times to grow my company in the past but I have come to realize that it's too difficult to manage a fully-virtual team of freelancers that all work their own hours and from home. Communication and management becomes a
Goal / Proposal:
I want to try something different this time. I would like to find a partner based in Manila or surrounding areas that does the same thing that I do. And perhaps even more.
I would also like to ideally find someone that has staff / workers that do Mobile Apps development.
It would also be great if they had workers that also worked with .NET and even with Ruby. This is not a requirement, it would just be a bonus if that is available as I sometimes pass up on projects that are with these technologies because I don't have the capacity to handle them.
Ideally the partner will either already have an office with staff or is in the process of setting one up.
I want to keep my costs down to start, which is why I would like to do a partnership instead of opening an office myself.
I envision something where I would help pay the office expenses in exchange for some space for workers I would hire to work. Or something similar to this... to be discussed.
Possibly also, we could share workers. I would like to be able to give the partner some project that his current staff could handle as needed.
If there is a manager on-site. I would like some assistance in conducting interviews for possible new workers also. I would pay for this time of course.
I am person that is fair, honest and easy to work with.
In short I am looking for a win-win partnership with someone that operates in the same industry as I do, that already has an office or will have one soon and so that we can help each other grow our companies.
