Expert Perl Web Developer

I am looking for an expert Perl programmer with 5+ years of experience in Perl/CGI and MySQL to work on my existing website. You must have extensive web development experience in building community sites and social networks and be available to work daily. I need someone who is interested in a long-term work situation (on-going/regular on a per project item basis).




[+] Must be able to work with existing code as well as custom code new features: Produce clean code and enhance/optimize existing scripts and modules.

[+] Must be able to work independently AND with a team. I need someone with good problem solving skills that can also take initiative

[+] Must be Honest, friendly, competent and have good English communication skills. If you are lazy and like to cut corners, you need NOT apply.

[+] Must have experience in creating "community-building" features that are user friendly. Examples: blogs, friends, profile customizing, photo galleries, ranking lists, posting/upload, creating new user levels and admin permissions, SEO friendly pages etc..

[+] You must be affordable. I need someone long-term so prices must reflect that. Also, you must be quick, alert and knowledgeable... I don't want to be penalized and have to pay more because you don't know your stuff!







HTML/CSS (for design integration)

PHP is an asset but not required




1. Develop Deluxe Private Message System: My site currently has a PM system but it is basic, ugly and ineffective. I want you to develop a completely new system for users to communicate on the site that will have the following features:

a) Read/Reply/Delete. Sender must show username & avatar picture, date and subject.

b) Must display status of mail: new, read, replied. New Unread mail is marked in Bold.

c) Must have an inbox, saved folders and a sent folder.

d) Users can create folders to save their mail. Basic (free) Users have 1 folder while my upgraded users (paid) have 10.

e) I want to integrate signatures. Sigs will be used when sending PM’s and would like to integrate this with forum sigs (remove sig field from forum and add to profile). Basic users can save 1 sig, Paid users can save 5 Sigs.

f) In mail boxes: need controls to move mail to other folder, block user, add user, report or delete!

I will provide HTML mockup so that you can see exactly how this feature will look and work. Note: This must be expandable in the future. I plan on adding a new user level (which will have a higher sig and folder limit) and other things so keep that in mind.


Please bid on this feature so that I can get idea of your price range and the time it takes you to complete a feature. Payments are always made upon completion of the feature (working & tested) using paypal (or escrow if you prefer). Thanks!
