Project Description

We are an early stage startup creating a new way of seeing the world through the use of location-based content.

We have built a frontend prototype of our product, and we are looking for a kickass engineer to help build the backend.

We will use this to further test the product in the field.

ABOUT THE PROJECT

Online tours

- Our product empowers local experts to create online content/tours of their cities.

- Each location in a tour can have video, slideshow, audio, or just text.

- Visitors to the site can then follow the tours using their mobile device.

Responsive design

- The site is web-based and uses responsive design, so the pages will look lovely on a big screen or a mobile device.

Registration and login/out

- Users can create accounts on our product via Google or Facebook.

Marketplace

- There is a marketplace component where users can make purchases with a credit card and/or paypal.

-----

OUR ROLE

I am the designer and frontend developer. I am creating all the frontend code for the site using HTML5, CSS3, and jquery, and will hand it off to you for backend development.

I have been designing, building, and managing web development and web app products for over ten years, and my projects have won a Webby and two awards from the American Association of Museums.

YOUR ROLE

We need you to do the backend development. This involves:

- Creating a database to hold the tour content

- Creating the marketplace

- Creating the registration and login/out component using Google

- Building the tour creation flow

We think that Ruby or Python are good code bases for the product, but are more than open to suggestions!
