We are looking for an expert Wordpress project manager / programmer / customer support for 20 hours per week.
ONLY BID if you are:
1. A Wordpress expert
2. An experienced project manager
3. Highly competent with written English in order to provide email support to customers
Don't waste your time and ours if you are not all 3. We do not expect a lot of bidders.
We have been working with Freelancers for years, but we have wasted too much time and stress with bidders who promise the world but don't deliver. Most recently a bidder promised a home page in 5-days and delivered a piece of crap after 31 days! We lost the client.
So, on a more positive note, this is where our business is at...
We have a full-time programmer who needs help. Our business is newspaper and magazine websites, core technology being multisite Wordpress with lots of sub-sites, plugins and proprietary code. Our sites are quite sophisiticated, yet very affordable. We offer off-the-shelf sites as well as tailored builds.
Our business also offers plenty of other services to publishers, including page-layout, revenue tools, marketing etc.
Business is really picking up and I need to be spending MUCH LESS time managing my programmer and the IT side of the business. I own the business and my current role includes customer liaison, IT project management, staff management, accounts, marketing/SEO and sales. More recently I engaged an accountant, SEO support, a page layout manager etc. I need to be focusing marketing and sales.
The missing bit is someone to manage the IT side of my business. The less time I am managing the IT, the more time I can spend on growing this business.
I need either an individual or a team who can manage Wordpress website builds and liaise vie email or Skype with the customers during and after the build, as well as keep me informed each week on progress/challenges. I expect the position to initially be 15-20 hours per week. Of course as the business grows we would need to increase these hours, but that might be a matter of putting on another developer for you to manage.
You must be able to roll up your sleeves and get stuck into the Wordpress programming. I don't want finger-pointers, I want doers... project manager + wordpress expert + customer support. I don't mind if you are an individual or a company. You do not need to be on immediate/emergency call and customer support is 80% email that requires response within 24-hours. All Skype support is pre-arranged.
Your bid should cover:
Your monthly rate (15-hours per week x 4 = 60 hours)
2 examples of sophisticated Wordpress projects that describe:
- The biggest challenge for the project
- Something that went wrong and how you fixed it
- How many hours the project required
- URL of the completed website.
Your company's or personal main business goal.
Sorry to be so pedantic with the job description here. I have been managing the IT side of my business for 5-years and endured a lot of crap. I am looking for a long-term partnership that rewards both of us.
Please note, in the past I have politely replied to all bids. This time, if there is even one gap in your bid I will not reply. If you cannot put in a simple bid based on this detailed spec, then you are unlikely to be someone who can manage several website builds concurrently while actively supporting our customers.
I thank you for reading this project spec and I look forward to your bid.
