We are a Denver based organization losing a beloved developer who must be replaced. He wrote clean code and provided elegant solutions that should be easy to pick up from.
* This is for a long-term but part time relationship. You would become our primary go-to person to develop, support and trouble-shoot a small yet relatively complex and expanding Web presence that is the heart and soul of our business.
* You must be truly agile - we don't do change orders and big corporate bureaucracy. You also need to have a quick turnaround without any padding of hours - we know how long stuff should take.
* Primary communication is via e-mail - you have to be an excellent communicator who gets it the first time. There isn't time or resourcing for endless rounds of phone calls and follow-ups. We won't hold your hand and spoon feed you, but nor are we going to irritate you with ridiculous / ignorant questions or attempts to scope-creep you to death.
* You get paid within 5-7 days of submitting an invoice if the job is done right. We even pay incentive bonuses for key projects or just because we like your work.
* The work consists of:
- Helping us to maintain up-time in a dedicated hosting environment at a top-class service provider. We run MODX Revolution 2.2.4-pl with several MySQL DBs and Parallels Plesk.
- Trouble-shooting the odd bugs and problems.
- Tweaking existing projects for enhancements / new or revised functionality. Skills should cover cron jobs, APIs, data tables, logic constructions, HTML 5, jQuery, XML, domain name management / services etc.
- Implementing front-end design revisions / updates provided by our designer.
- Paying attention to detail / being proactive. If something doesn't make sense, tell / ask us before just doing it!
- Undertaking progressive enhancement projects as we increase functionality and improve value to customers.
- Building forms and collecting data.
* The work is seasonal (most active Feb-March and June-July) but projects come up all the time. Availability is a big deal, especially in the seasonal periods.
* We don't mind paying the right price for the right skill. But it needs to be proven.
