Developer Needed For Ongoing Projects (SAAS Applications, Plug-ins, etc.) [CLOSED]
I am looking for a rockstar developer for ongoing, long term work. I work in the Internet Marketing world and want to create a number of SAAS applications and Wordpress plug-ins to market to people in that community.
The first application will be user chat forums that have a number of gamification elements built in. Users can unlock badges, be awarded points, participate in events, and purchase items from an in-house marketplace. I have already completed a 45 page written blueprint outlining the entire user experience from the perspective of users, admins, and site owners. I have the entire UI/UX design complete and in PDF form ready to go as well as the 50 or so badges users can earn.
I have also received confirmation that this entire platform can be built on either PhpBB or Vanilla as they are both open source and robust enough to allow for all the customization I'm looking for.
I'm looking to hire a developer who can really knock this out of the park quickly and affordably, so I know we can have a great long-term business relationship. When you submit your resume and cover letter, please list your favorite beverage at the very top so I know you've read all this and are a serious candidate.
Also in your response indicate if you have ever worked with open source technology, and if so - which ones. Share some links as well - it'll earn you extra credit!
I am based in NYC and am available via Skype or email most hours of the day or night. Strong communication skills are an absolute must so as to avoid expensive and confusing mistakes.
I look forward to hearing from you very soon.
