Professional Web Development Team Needed
We are in need of a PROFESSIONAL web development team to work with our current team to speed up our development time on some projects.
The current site being developed is based on a social platform, so only teams that have already completed a full social networking project before should bid on this project. You must be able to provide a working example of your work on a social networking site.
Your team members that will work on this project must have proven experience, (your company might have lots of experience, but we do not want your junior inexperienced members working on this project). You must have experience with dealing with web security issues, i.e. account hacks, spamming, flooding, too many requests from ip etc… Your team leader /project manager should be personable and able to converse fluently in english with us.
We have developed some of our core modules, such as the user module, which we would provide you with details on, so that if you needed to interface with our current system you have all the required information.
Requirements will be created jointly before any work is started, but since you are expected to have an existing system, you will already have a well developed set of requirements, so that we can work together to see what modifications are needed and have a clear understanding of them. We do not want to have to tell you every single requirement from scratch, you should already have a solid base to work from. The coding methods and techniques must meet our standards and guidelines, so that our team members can work with completed modules developed by your team. i.e. your team will need to create clearly written unit tests and documentation for each module, as these will be added into our project as part of our documentation.
Modules to be developed by your team in the current phase are :
- private messaging
- instant messaging
- public guestbook / shoutwall
(privacy settings, flooding/spam actions, email invites, restrictions, blocking etc.. should all be considered)
This is why your team should have proven experience with social networking site development, so that you are not coding from zero, and have a solid basis to develop on and customize these modules for our project, and you already have experience with dealing with the numerous issues that arise on these types of sites.
We would need to see your current implementation so that we can see your quality of work and then what types of modifications we would need for our site to provide you with a better estimate of work to be done.
(please refer to friendster, facebook, hi5, orkut for social networking site implementations and feature sets)
The modules/modifications to be completed in the 1st phase should be done within approx 35 days. We are located in Asia, so please keep this in mind for daily communication needs of the project.
In addition to the 1st phase modules, if the work flow and quality of code meets our requirements, we would have a continued relationship for additional modules in the future.
Payments will be released in stages just as completed modules are delivered to us. Since your team should already have an existing platform, our budget is as listed.
We look forward to working with your team of professionals :)
IMPORTANT:: Too many providers have posted their generic portfolio, this is a waste of our time and yours.
We are a serious company, looking to work with a team of professionals, by just sending your generic portfolio, it really shows a lack of professionalism, and looks more like spam. Especially when providers send portfolios where half of their links do not work and are not relevant to the current project.
We will clarify what we need to choose a winning bidder again:
You MUST have experience building social networking sites, i.e. facebook, myspace, hi5, friendster.
You MUST send us links to LIVE, WORKING social networking sites that you have built. We do not want to see your baby projects that you are just starting, we need to see functional sites to give a good indication of your quality of work.
If you have never built a social networking site, DO NOT BID. You are only wasting our time and yours.
If the site you built isn't live or does not work, DO NOT BID. You are only wasting our time and yours.
If you respond, you MUST provide links via pm to social networking sites that you've built. We don't want links to non social networking sites or other projects you've worked on, they are not relevant to this project.
You will be asked to sign a non-disclosure agreement upon completion, and all written script will be 100% legal property of our company/client. No reuse, resell, distributing, or use to show other clients as your customer profile.
Once again, DO NOT post your generic portfolio and introduction, that will not win you this bid (and might also get you flagged as spam).
