We need a website put together in Perl.
The look, feel and functionality must be very close to the leading classifieds website in existence today, with some additional features added as well. It must be set up to offer classified ads based on cities and/or regions around the world.
We can provide readily available examples of the look, posting style, page layout, dynamics, or any functionality of the site needed.
I do not need a designer just a builder. I am not looking for a slightly modified script which anyone can download from the hundreds of sites offering out-of-the box classified sites.
In addition, we will need a great backroom admin feature with the ability to edit buttons, fields, text, and if possible background colors. It needs to be open source so I can have any programmer work on it in the future. It will need a login system and user reputation system.
If you can build an exact copy of one of the leading classified sites you will be able to build our site so there shouldn't be too many questions in order for you to know if you can do it or not. If you've already built a script and could just apply the few changes we need to the existing script, then you may be what we're looking for. If you've just downloaded a script from the internet, then you're not who we're looking for.
Do not bid on this job unless you can actually do this job.
I will not pay any money up front to an unproven developer.
I will pay a percentage when I see real evidence that you can actually do this job. And the rest of the pay will come when the job is up, tested and fully functioning.
"Real evidence" will consist of a functioning website that looks exactly like I need it to look and does exactly what I need it to do.
Evidence will not consist of pre-built classifieds models which are commonly available and emails telling me that you will be able to get it done . . . you just need more time.
If you have the ability to actually do this work you should know it.
This is a paying gig. Budget is from $1,500.00 to over $2,500.00 US dollars. Payment will be in Bitcoin based on the USD equivalent of the budget we agree on. Price, payment, and payment scheduling will be discussed in more detail at the time of contact and any potential agreement we might reach.
Please save us both our valuable time. Only contact me if you can actually do this work and have some portfolio examples to show me.
A mastery of English is important so that we can clearly communicate ideas. Sadly . . . and I do apologize but . . . I only speak English and so I cannot accommodate people in other languages.
