Project Description


I'm owning the classified website [url removed, login to view] (you can have a look at the website), and I'm looking for a developper to make some improvments on the website.

If everything goes good, it can be a long term partnership.

The kind of improvments I need are :

1- improve the actual antispam. For fight spammers, the website manage a file where bad words / emails are stored. Move this feature to database, seems files are difficult to manage in reading / writing at the same time

2- switch transactional emails from PHPmail to external SMTP to maximize delivrability

3- improve the current API to add the possibility of sending pictures too (now, it just take texts)*

4- create notifications emails to notify users about what is going on on their emails

5- make some on-demand requests on database

6- transform all th ecode into OOP PHP

If everything is good so far, then others features would be :

- build a mobile website

- build Firefox / Chrome extension for our visitors...

Please, don't apply if you don't have strong experience in PHP / MySQL on website with HIGH traffic, and give me your references so I can judge your competencies.

The shortlisted candidates would have access to the dev platform, so they can have a better idea of the work to be done, and after, the final candidate would be choosen.

This is a good job, very exciting, because working on a really new project, which great impact on people lives in Africa.
