Project Description

We are a team of 3 developers building a Web 2.0 consumer subscription service in Ruby on Rails. We are looking for an experienced developer to join our team on an on-going long-term basis.


* Timeline:

* At least 20 hours per week

* Starting as soon as possible

* Ruby/Rails expert

* Be comfortable working in a team environment. All of us are located in different places. We communicate via specs, lots of IM, and make heavy use of SVN.

* Examples of projects:

* Integrate an affiliate system

* Build business intelligence reports

* Help us improve automated test coverage

* Help improve our credit-card fraud detection system

* Current status of our project:

* We've been running this business for about 1 year.

* As of 3 months ago our site is entirely on Rails.

* The main scenarios for signup, billing, and administration are all done already. Our remaining work mostly consists of adding features on top of our existing code-base. (which we like to think is reasonably well-designed and written)

* Pay:

* Ultimately we want to work with you on an hourly basis where you record your time in a google spreadsheet and we pay every 1-2 weeks.

* Before that, as our first project, let's start with a fixed-price project. (your bid here) This should give us a fixed number of hours of your time, after which we'll decide whether to continue the relationship and switch to a per-hour basis.

* In your bid, please indicate the following:

* A few sentences about your level of experience with Ruby/Rails. How complex systems have you built, and what role did you play in those projects?

* Your level of experience with automated tests.

* Your hourly rate.

* Your timezone and working hours.

* Number of hours you'd be available per week for the next 4 weeks.

* Please bid about $500, and indicate how many hours that includes.
