We have developed a complex financial simulation web application based on CakePHP. To assist our Head of IT and lead developer, we are looking for a talented individual or team to assist in further improving the application, as well as to continue implementing new features, and improve existing ones. You will join the project on the fly, and start handling small tasks, growing into it smoothly until you can take over larger responsibilities. This is a long term cooperation, with the option to work on other projects as well (CakePHP, YII, or PHP in general).
You must be communicative, reliable, available during European business hours, proactive, and creative in your approach while at the same time implementing sustainable code. You must have excellent English language skills - knowledge of Russian, Ukrainian, or German is a plus. You must be a developer yourself, even if you lead a team. Our Head of IT will not communicate with a project manager who will then relay the message to his team as too much information will be lost on the way. When you place your bid, you must include a short sentence of why you believe you are the best choice for this cooperation, and at the end of the sentence you need to write "(28)". Bids without either of this will be ignored.
Update 2019/03/29: Thank you for bidding so far. We will start interviewing potential candidates next week.
