You're bidding on the creation of a community website, designed to bring people together for lunch. We're looking for a coder who has experience in designing customised community websites. The automation of all functionality, especially the monthly billing system will be a key factor. Flexibility and expandability as we grow out and require more features is also very important. As such, if it fulfills all of the requirements, a customised opensource pre-packaged software application would also be acceptable. We would like to be closely involved with the development, and we would request coder to be generally available on Skype or MSN.
