We are currently seeking an experienced PHP developer who can take over an existing project that is approximately 75% - 85% done. This is a project we started around 12months ago with a previous inhouse developer who has since left.
This is a reverse auction website which means retailers bid to sell consumers products apposed to a traditional auction sites like eBay, where retailers sell to consumers.
This website only deals with one specific industry (automotive) and charges only a flat service fee per completed sale, so a lot of the expected complexity with such a site has been taken out.
The site has been programmed using an existing application called “Ilance” ([url removed, login to view]), which basically does the job out of the box. Most of the customisation to date has been:
- Removing unwanted application functionality
- Coding a custom Perl script that automatically inputs vehicle data from a 3rd party source.
- CC processing
What's left to do?
The site basically needs a good clean up. There are some CSS issues that need to be dealt with, there are a number of custom tags that need fixing, account redirection and there is still more functionality that needs to be removed.
I'm not exactly sure how much work is left to be done. If by chance you are familiar with Ilance then this may only take you under a week to get the bulk of it done. The difficult parts of this project have, for the most part been done.
Obviously you will need to see the website in its current state before you can make an accurate decision on time and costing. Please private message me with some information about yourself and I will send you back the URL and current logins and a more detailed explanation from the previous developer.
Also, give me a quick run down on where you are based, past projects, current workload etc.
Lastly, I've been burnt one too many times and I never pay upfront for work.... an alternative payment schedule will have to be made.
