Please read the description carefully and only bid if you are absolutely sure you can address all my needs and accept all my conditions.
At the moment I have 12 projects for my company ranging from small open source PHP script installations to year or more of full time custom PHP development. All those projects are budgeted for until November 2004 and I have an overall plan in which one PHP expert is booked until March 2004 with occasional help of a Graphic Designer. If the initial work is successfull, after March I planned for two to three full time PHP developers.
All 12 projects will need some web design or improvements of already existing web design.
In addition to those 12 projects, I expect number of projects coming in later from our clients which would consist of design and customization of our scripts.
I'm looking for an offshore company that has enough resources to cover my needs and to handle occasional surges and quiet periods in my projects.
For PHP, I need experts with several years of experience. Code has to be clean and commented and performing well under stress.
For graphic design I am looking for a completely original design. It has to be very clean, professional look.
To select you I will need:
Your web design portfolio.
Demo of your PHP solutions.
Your rate (hourly, daily or weekly...)
Number of employees and CVs of two persons (PHP and designer) that would start on my project.
I will verify with your clients some of the design and PHP samples you will submit.
If all your projects were under NDA, don't bother bidding and telling me that.
I have several PHP people and designers on site.
We are aware of all the templates on the web and design "inspiration" sites like CoolHomePages and similar. It's a good chance we will spot if the design is a template or stolen, so please don't bother unless your design is original.
We are also aware of majority of PHP scripts that can be found on HotScripts, SourceForge etc. Please, don't submit any of those scripts as your own creation. If you did extensive changes in an existing script or integrated it with several other scripts, than we'd like to see that work.
We know in details number of sites like DotComBuilder and others selling turnkey web sites. Again, don't submit such a site as your own creation. If you customized it and solved your client's problem that way, we'd like to hear about that, but state clearly the origin of the script.
Most likely you will keep on doing all the customization and maintenance of solutions you create, but I don't want to depend on you. Therefore, all your work has to be well commented and documented.
We will sign an NDA and you will not be able to claim any rights on anything you did for me. You will not be able to showcase that work as your work either.
You will have to submit your work on a very regular basis. Maybe even daily.
What I offer:
Long term partnership.
Regular payments. Per project, sub-project or task. Weekly or even daily. Any way it suits you as long as you can regularly justify the work done.
Currently I have [url removed, login to view] EUR budgeted and put aside for my projects. Better work you perform, bigger part of that you'll be able to earn.
Once I select you, you'll get all my contact details and you'll see that you are dealing with an established and respected company.
We'll communicate regularly
More information you can send me, better chances you have.
I will choose somebody only when the auction finishes. Please read the requirements carefully and prepare your submission carefully. You have plenty of time.
You may contact me at bizconsult9 at yahoo.com. Or with Yahoo Messenger.
Thanks in advance for all your bids.
