Looking for full time employee @500$US/month (at this rate, candidate will likely be in South Asia).
Gradually pay can increase, even to 1000$US / month, if excellent worker.
Candidate should have readily available internet access, preferably at home.
Candidate should be looking at 55hr+/week (convenient if working from home, i.e. no transit time, driving, etc).
Candidate needs to have excellent comprehension of english writting (reading), and be able to write well in english,
very little if any verbal/talk is needed. Communication will also be done live over ICQ(or other IM's).Work for the most part can be done at flexible times, but usually it would be preferred that candidate can answer and turn emails around quickly at 8-11pm EST ( i.e. 7-10am india time),
ideally even a bit earlier. To get to 60hrs / week, candidate can work weekends, or 11hour week days, or even
work 15hrs/day 4 days a week and have 3 days off a week. Candidate should have computer(s) to access internet, and a computer to act as server to install software and experiment, however an online server account will be provided as well. Candidate should have University Degree in Comp Sci, or similar (Masters Degree would be nice even).
Candidate needs to set up 400 web sites, probably in drupal, and know php, and install and run on a linux server.
Hook drupal to mysql (or postgres), and do custom php programming and modify existing drupal/php modules.
Administration skill on Linux is a must as well. Know SQL on postgres/mysql db's. C# programming would also be a huge asset (or C/C++, and then learn c#). .Net experience would also be an additional asset. HTML layout and website design is also required at least a basic, advanced web site design and css and graphics ability would be an added benefit. We are looking for a long term partnership, and if the project is successful, and in time (years), 50k$US/year salary or higher may be possible. Applicants will be vigorously tested before hired. Degrees, certificates,
diplomas, etc, will be important. In the short term, in first few weeks, we want to set up 400 websites, on drupal/php/mySql type environment, all the websites will be similar, and other people will work on most of the look and styling. A common article posting module will be needed, and to be modified, and the 400 sites need to share certain data (think rss feed). There will also have to be a auction web site built to allow for bidding on products. There is also projects in C# to be done as well, these involve CMS (build a drupal like CMS in c#), and also a network communication software in c# (like rsync, and clustered db's). Applicants should also have excellent understanding of computer software programming like unit testing, algorithm design, know about hash tables, lists, threads, etc. Knowledge of Silverlight and/or Html 5 would also be an asset. Work will be done in projects, each project with time line and cost (in hours) estimates. Successful candidate will want to ensure, even with over time, that project time lines are reasonably meet, and that any delays are explained. Understanding of Cloud computing would also be an asset, as well as or virtualization, i.e. openVS, etc.
Candidates should be able to provide code examples and work to prove abilities. Your supervisor will be a
BSc CompSci, Master Math from a prestigious University, and will do high level specification, and drive ideas, but, when needed, the supervisor programs in C# and knows mySql, PostgreSQL, linux, all very, very well.
So the supervisor can help, but also the supervisor will be able to assess, very easily, the potential of the candidate.
I will post more information as this ad runs. We are not looking for short term workers, you should be comfortable with the pay of the job and want to stay with it for a lengthy period of time. Please submit sample work (URL's) if possible.
Send resume too.
Want an individual, not interested in company (sub'ing to multiple people)
In the responses I have already had,I realize that having this job with both sys adm and programming makes it more specialized and less people can bid. I mainly need the programming skill, so the sys adm side of this job can be lessened, but basic abilities to work with linux would still be required.
The hours per week can be less, i.e. 9 hrs per day, 45 hour / week.
The pay can start a bit higher, but it is intended to up the pay as the successful candidate becomes more proficient.
Pay can reach 800$/month quickly if the candidate can get the job done.
Candidate must be in a position to learn c# (if they don't know it already, in own time), and be ready to use it
in a few months. There is not enough work in this position for just PHP programming.
It would be more likely in fact, that the candidate know C#, and a small amount of PHP, which is easier for a c#
developer to learn quickly.
It also may be possible to have this job be not FULL TIME , but almost full time,
that is, 3 week a month, or 4 days a week,
so, say, 35 hours a week, and allowing candidate to still work on other projects.
This would allow us to hire two people, one being select 50 hours a month type work,
and the other, this posting full time or near full time. At 35 hours / week, the
pay rate per month would be less, but this may be a more attractive option to some candidates.
