I'm looking for a full stack laravel developer who I can continue working with as the need arises in the future. I have an active site built on a laravel platform with a lot of complex custom php coding and history, so I need someone who is an expert Laravel coder who can help me troubleshoot and fix whatever is not working properly, now and in the future, and help me improve the site.
First thing that needs doing is to make sure the Amazon SES system currently in place is working properly and that previously and newly bounced emails are automatically removed from the bulk mailing list. I also need a way to manually change the status of a user that for some reason is incorrectly categorized as inactive, which seems to have happened to a few users for reasons unknown.
Other than a few minor little fixes and improvements I would like done, I also have a big upgrade in mind: My free storytelling site currently provides authors with a free simple profile. I want to create a better profile option for them with added value they will be willing to pay for, such as links to their books for sale on other sites, with images, links to social media pages, bigger better author profile pic/s, etc.... I'm open to suggestions for the best way to do all this and for improvements that will benefit authors enough to be worth a small monthly fee (or annual for extra savings). There is currently no integrated payment system, so that will be needed as well. It can be either braintree or stripe, with a paypal direct pay/link option. Those who do not pay keep the current profile. Those who want to upgrade pay the fee. Of course the means to manage all this needs to be added to my admin panel, and users who sign up will need payment account/subscription section added to their user panel.
Additionally, there is a current points earning system in place, and I would like for authors who want to upgrade to a premium profile to have the option to pay for it with their earned points, in order to create added value for the points system.
All work needs to be responsive and mobile friendly and be seamlessly integrated into current site design. Because of the customized complexity of my code, and the fact that a lot of different people have worked on it, sometimes new code added creates problems with old code. I need someone who is an expert in laravel and custom php so they can figure out how to fix little glitches when/IF something goes wrong, and also hopefully anticipate how new code might affect old code to avoid problems from happening in the first place.
Each project that needs doing on my site can be priced separately, based on your fair estimate of the work involved. Feel free to provide separate pricing for the Amazon SES work that needs doing now, and for the upgraded author profile and payment system integration that needs doing later.
Thanks for your interest in my project. Please respond specifically to my project needs/details, rather than with a generic reply. I don't need your history and resume. I need to know how you can help me improve my site and whether you're someone I can successfully work with.
