This is a complex build with some functionality similar to a matchmaking site – although for a different type of business altogether.
The main functionality features are:
• Member sign up with profile creation forms.
• Member and admin dashboards with various features such as search and advanced search of the membership database.
• Results ordered by proximity, so geospatial programming skills required.
• Members pay to subscribe, so Ecommerce skill is required, including ability to automatically process part-payments on a monthly basis.
You will need excellent, clean coding skill, and good communication skills as I will be managing this job closely.
The site MUST be built to be SE friendly from the outset. I have a list of requirements for this, but if you are knowledgeable in this area they will not come as a surprise.
The final deliverable should be a well-designed, bug-free, search engine friendly, and secure site ready to be launched into full operation and loaded at my domain. Successful bidder acknowledges any source code created and all I.P. rights reside with employer for their sole benefit.
Once I select a small shortlist of suppliers, I can provide a site map. I have all of the copy written and main visual elements like the dashboards and home page already graphically designed. Payment will be by agreed milestones.
Your initial bid should contain a broad outline of what programming / scripting language you would use, timeframes, URL's of similar websites you may have built, and any other information you believe pertinent at this early stage. Generic replies with scant information will be discounted. Thank you.
