We are a Chicago based startup who is designing a customizable electronic restaurant menu application and need a talented individual to program our design into an iPad application. This is a great opportunity for you to work with a motivated team on the initial functionality of the application as well as ongoing development and future enhancements. We see this as a potentially continuous relationship with the possibility of part ownership assuming things go well.
Features of the menu application: It will be completely customizable to suit each restaurant's needs through a manager's control panel, including menu items, images, logos, fonts, colors, etc. The user experience will include information about each dish/beverage including ingredients, calories, origin of food, etc. as well as pictures of each item. Users will be able to select each menu item and add it to their order, and even rate items right from the iPad. We would also like the user to be able to submit the order to the restaurant's point of service (POS) system and/or have the functionality to send their orders to a printer, alerting the kitchen staff automatically that an order has been placed. We would like to incorporate analytics for the restaurant managers so they can run reports on what foods are being ordered most, which ones are getting the best ratings, etc.
The application will be very fun, interactive, and intuitive. Most of all it has to look polished and function very well. It cannot be sluggish. While we are not looking for a designer, having design experience is a plus. We are basically looking for someone to take our designs and program the application with the most up to date standards and programming practices.
