Project for Freelance Web Community
I have begun a project that will be launching one of the best freelance communities on the internet, and will be ready for launch in the next 30 days.
I need to have a programmer on staff for initial site modifications, and integration with current systems.
I would like the programmers to be based in the US or Canada, but I will consider requests from any location.
PHP mySQL Experts ONLY (OOP Programming background prefered)
Programmer should be well versed in vBulletin
Familiar with Smarty Template Engine. Main site runs on Smarty, and forum uses standard vB templates.
Ability to convert code to suit the needs of a project.
Ability to understand complex code and database layouts
Advanced mySQL queries. (multiple joins, etc.)
A Full NDA will be signed and delivered back to me before project work can start for any canidate. All code modified and developed will be 100% copyrighted, and available for use on our site only.
This project will be paid mainly in the following manner:
Payment will be via a 6 month free "super" membership. All of your project fees will be waived, and the fees for the user posting projects you win will also be waived!!! This will include all features that a Premium account would have, plus totally free fees. (Even the Premium accounts have fees associated with posting and winning projects.
After 6 months, details are negotiable, and I would like to see my programmer become a community leader.
Initially, the work will be simple, and in bit parts, and not require extensive ammounts of time.
The following is what I need to accomplish with my programmer:
Full vBulletin Integration (Login/Registration/Private Messaging)
Minor work on integrating current code with new backend code.
Many other small projects on a page by page basis.
Full time marketing to attract webmasters and programmers to signup.
Activity in the community forums as a "community leader"
Projects will be assigned by each persons qualifications, and time frame for availability and completion of each.
I would really like for a programmer at least in the United States / Canada to be available via telephone for a brief discussion on what I had in mind. Otherwise, after winners have been selected, the site message board (at my site) will be used for all communications.
Work will start very simply to establish trust and qualifications, and expand depending on needs and availability.
This will be a fun project to work on, and will provide me with getting the site finished and ready for launch, while giving the programmer(s) I select a super bonus advantage in the community for winning projects, and expanding your portfolio.
Please contact me via the PMB to discuss further details, and I can send you a link to the site, and current data/info, and we can discuss how this could work for us both....
I'm also considering after site launch, and brushing up of project code that there may be the possibility of profit sharing when it comes to the lanuch of the software side of the community making the freelance software available to the public... I've seen at least a dozen freelance scripts, and they were all horrible... the freelancers 2.9 script is only moderately ok, but I hate CGI scripts, and will ONLY work with PHP, and every iteration of a PHP version was either 700$ a pop, or the worst looking code/template I've ever seen.... I am seriously considering releasing a good package for this community and allow others to start thier own site, and have feeds from this site be displayed as an affiliate program.
