WHAT I AM LOOKING FOR
I need someone with extremely good knowledge of DOM loading and an expert in optimizing for speed. No quick fixes are possible, as I've already achieved near 100% page speed optimization scores. This is real work, no gimmicks.
I want to make all my pages load in 500ms or less on GTMetrix, without losing functionality or introducing bad user experience. Currently, the load time of pages on my theme is between 800ms and 1200ms. Check the waterfall chart: [url removed, login to view]
I want you to optimize my theme so that not a single bit is transmitted which is not required, and so that it does not break any existing functionality of the theme.
Milestone 1 - Reduce load speed to 700ms
Milestone 2 - Reduce load speed to 600ms
Milestone 3 - Reduce load speed to 500ms
PRELIMINARY QUALIFICATION QUESTIONS
1. Are you an individual and not an agency? If yes, proceed. If no, don't apply.
2. Have you built custom Wordpress themes from scratch before? If yes, proceed. If no, don't apply.
3. Have you ever used .less files before to compile .css? If yes, proceed. If no, don't apply.
5. Have you ever needed to figure out how to optimize font loading across multiple browsers with an eye to page speed? If yes, proceed. If no, don't apply.
PS: Don't apply if your answer starts with "Hi Sir, I have gone through your requirements and I am confident we can meet your expectations." That just tells me you are a business dev person who has no clue what they are talking about.
You agree the code will 100% belong to me and will not have any rights to reuse it for your own projects. You agree to destroy the code when you no longer need to work on it.
