We are looking for a developer with experience creating YAHOO bots (experience with other protocols a bonus). The developer will be able to take defined set of business rules and implement an IM answer bot. The business rules will need to look at a database in order to determine the proper message to be sent back to the users request. The database structure and design will be provided as part of the complete requirements.
For scalability the application will need to maintain multiple bots at once and mange their status. This includes the ability to modify their status, profile picture, and nicknames.
The bot should be written to work on a linux platform and be scalable to handle a large number of concurrent messages. The backend database will be a MySQL database.
We will require all source code and complete build process documentation. The language used for the application is not a fixed requirement.
Please provide examples of your work and or references.
