We have an existing early stage prototype of a Ruby on Rails application that makes it easy to search and track state politicians, campaign contributors and voters.? The application allows a user to understand the relationships between campaign contributors and political candidates.? It allows users to search by name, or using geography (Search on Google Map).? The application features simple user management (Create users, password help, etc.).?
The project you are bidding on is a significant upgrade to the current prototype.? The goals are to add significant new functionality (described in the attached specification), improve performance and reliability, and document the system and configure it for operation in a production environment with our hosting provider.
You should be highly skilled in Ruby, Rails, MySQL databases, and basic server administration. As a plus, it would help if you have some experience making rails applications perform faster and more reliably at scale.
Attached find a copy of the current prototype application, as well as a spec requesting enhancements.? If you are serious about bidding on this project, contact me and I will email you a username/password to access a live version of the prototype.
Attached find a ZIP file containing:
1) ZIP file of current prototype application.? Note: all rights reserved!
2) DOC file of proposed enhancements to existing prototype (the work you will be asked to perform)
