I am looking for a contract/freelance programmer to assist in software development that I am performing for our company and I would like to pitch the job to you.
We are a large Hydroponics farm in Gippsland employing around 300 people and I am the sole engineer in the company who is developing new systems to improve the businesses data acquisition systems and processes to feed management and supervisors KPI data points of the staffs’ performance.
Before I got involved in the company 18 months ago, they were using a system developed by a Dutch company that is about 15 years old and I am in the process of developing something new to transition the business into. I have a significant portion of the new system developed and currently running in a new greenhouse that the farm has just put in this season (5 hectares in size) and after a few bugs that needed ironing out, it is performing quite well.
The issue I have is that I am the sole person on this system who has any idea of how anything works now and the company, while being very happy with the improvements that I’ve been making, is very wary of continuing to expand this new system with only one technical person who is capable of developing/fixing what has been done.
In the next 3 months, management want me to give them a plan of how they can be covered in case something was ever to happen to me, and I would like to discuss with you if you would be a suitable contact should the need ever come to provide development work to improve/fix/expand my system.
There also will be the need in the future to develop further PC / Web applications to interact with the database that I would like to be able to contract out to someone.
Please contact me if this is something you would be interested in and we can discuss it further.
