Experience with recommendation systems a must
PYTHON expert preferred
Experience with building crowd-sourcing websites preferred
*If you do not have all of these skills personally, but can put together a team of programmers who do, this is sufficient.
To build a crowd-sourcing website where users participate in contests by submitting and voting on text and images (ex. [url removed, login to view]). The website will take monetary transactions, and will have a recommendation system that recommends items and contest to users ([url removed, login to view] does not have a recommendation system. And whereas threadless has just one ongoing contest, our website will have different contest started by users). We prefer the use of open-source code to build this website wherever possible, especially for the store and transaction areas, and possibly even the crowd-sourcing and recommendation system. Coding in PYTHON preferred, and must be object-oriented.
The entire website will have approximately 30 individual pages. For each page, programmer will be provided with wireframe, digital front-end image, and information architecture specifications in text. No design work is required from programmers.
