We recently posted a project on here involving integrating Expedia's EAN Travel program. We deleted the job because we got a great deal from a company that we have an established relationship with. Although they are fantastic to work with, they admitted they don't have experience with Expedia's affiliate program.
We're re-posting this job, and it is absolutely imperative that we get someone on the task that has Experience with Expedia API's and XML. We need to see a portfolio of web sites you have designed, and you need to have reviews on your work that are related to the type of work we are looking for. (We don't just look at the score, we look at the nature of work you have done as well).
That being said, here are the basics of the job:
1- Web site must have a log-in and sign up process for two separate types of clients
2- We need someone who can customize a Mapquest Map by using their API's for the main page
3- Must have Flash experience in order to edit the flash presentation on our main page...may require customization (3 total presentations need to be completed on this page. Here is the template: [url removed, login to view]
4- Social Networking integration experience a HUGE bonus
5- Must be able to have the hotels sort in 3 tiers...our gold members on top, silver members below that, and all others underneath (We certify hotels and businesses under a certain criteria) We need to have our seal of approval on the Gold and Silver level hotels...and a date of most recent approval on the Gold hotels which shows as a result of being updated in the database
6- The site must be simple enough to maintain and update that we can do it without hiring someone to make simple updates, etc. Bids that offer support and working out bugs, etc. after completion, etc will be taken into extra consideration.
7- We need someone who can be dedicated to our project. Timing and quality work is important.
8- More details to come if we like your portfolio. Please make sure the sites you list are functioning properly.
Thanks so much for your time!
