This is a new 'e-commerce' website we are building. This will involve bidding technology and will integrate - voice applications, - social networking applications, and - latest online collaboration tools . We will disclose more about the project during negotiations. This project will involve understanding requirements, building prototype, and coding the project till it goes live with a possible longer-term relationship if the vendor performs well. I will provide detailed guidance on the requirements and will almost be like ‘extreme programming’ till the project goes live. We will ask for a pilot before the final selection. About the vendor: - The vendor and the persons who are going to be involved in this project should have executed internet technology projects (that involve Ajax/similar technology) recently. - The vendor should have worked with start ups earlier. - The vendor should be willing to sign non-compete, non-disclosure agreements and intellectual property related agreements. - The vendor should be located in Hyderabad, India or at least in south India. - The vendor may have to work on employer’s premises. But this is flexible. Timelines - The project will start in about 15-20 days after final selection of the vendor. Pricing - Please tell us your preferred pricing and invoicing mechanism Additional requirements: Please do not submit templated responses. I am not interested in receiving long mails with a number of links. Please state briefly why you are most suited to execute this project. Your response cannot exceed 2 pages, 3 links and 1 attachment of 15 pages max.
