I need someone who is an expert at WordPress development (NOT a designer) and PHP who can assist with all sorts of development around plugins, theme extensions etc. Also some work with PHP frameworks needed - Userfrosting for sure and possibly Laravel or Yii or some other one (I haven't selected one yet so it will depend what you like).
I would prefer to work with programmers from Eastern Europe rather than Chinese or Indian as I've found in the past the language and cultural barriers to be a problem.
I prefer someone who is smart and flexible who is willing to learn and help work out what is needed rather than someone who needs rigid specs and will follow them to the letter even if they make no sense. Generally we will discuss each project over Skype Chat or Google Chat so if your spoken English is not very good it's no problem. Written English needs to be very good.
I will pay on an hourly basis - however the project will be discussed upfront and a timeframe will be agreed so we can stick within budget as much as possible. I need someone who can do some work for me on an ongoing basis. I want to develop a fun partnership where we can bounce ideas off each other. I am a developer myself but just have too much work on at the moment so need some help. Right this minute I don't have any work, but that will change very soon. I put in not sure as to the number of hours but I would say 20-40 hours a month - some months like the summer tend to be quieter.
I will devise a small test project for the shortlisted candidates.
