I'm looking for a committed developer to join our team. My website is a Web 2.0 social network with an Alexa ranking of 50,000. It is growing quickly, and we need a developer to be on-call for lots of different projects. Our team also runs 2 large e-commerce sites. We also consult and create Facebook applications and widgets for other internet companies. We are based in Silicon Valley and work with lots of other startups. Bottom line: we have a lot of work if you're good.
Your main work will focus on developing applications on the new Open Social platform by Google. We have 10 popular applications on the Facebook platform, and part of your job will be to port these apps to Open Social. You will also have lots of other interesting smaller projects like landing page creation, basic html changes, and bug fixes on our destination site.
Pay will be between $10-$20 an hour depending on experience and skill level. We will be giving you anywhere between 20-80 hours of work per month. If we think you're good, we'll give you 80 hours of work per month. Your bid here is for 20 hours - we'll see how you do with some smaller projects and adjust workload and hourly rate accordingly. I am looking to start you off at $10/hour, but rest assured that it will quickly go up once you prove yourself.
You should be available through IM, have good written communication skills, and be honest with billing me for time. Please see our feedback - we have worked with lots of freelancers on GAF and we give the best coders repeat business. I am looking for another coder who I can eventually give $1500 projects to every month.
Edit on 11/5/07: I've narrowed down the candidates to 6 people:
I will pick one of these 6 for my long term contractor. I posted a mini-project that I'd like one of you to take on. If you do that project well, I'll select you for this long-term project
