Ideally, we would select developers who are proficient in building a website experience top-to-bottom. The phased development plan is ready, but we will select platform and language requirements based on what the developer is most proficient with. Thus, any open-source languages and platforms are applicable, including (but not limited to): PHP, Python, Perl, Ruby on Rails, and so on.
Additionally, the service will be running on a mySQL or PostgreSQL back-end database. PostgreSQL is preferred, but not required. Also, the developer must be capable of building the service with an abstraction layer to allow for easy scalability. This is required.
Currently, the service is slated to be hosted on Amazon's EC2/S3 service for quick scalability; experience using this service is a plus.
A high-level overview of the project is included below. Continuing objectives are confidential and will be revealed to the dev team.
