I'm looking for a backend developer for a short term project, that will be used as an audition for larger scale project which will span 3 months and will be worth ~30K. We are currently in pre-investment stage, and this bottleneck will allow us to get heavily funded ($5 million+); this project will be used to demo the developer's capabilities. If the project is delivered successfully then we may offer a competitively paid full-time position with benefits.
Current project is a learning development system - a portal designed to teach student. The frontend is almost is ready and is written in React.js and Redux.
The developer's job will be to create a backend in Django and REST framework. Our company is working on a learning management system (LMS) and we have thus far created the 80% of front end; the front-end will be completed in a week. Preferably, we will use PostgreSQL which will allow scaling and offloading. The backend also needs to be heavily oriented towards recording a diversity of analytics.
The developer will need to create API to connect backend to the front.
Making those pieces of the frontend modular and having them show up or behave according to what information is given by the data that is received from the backend. Coding how the UI behaves; and meshing all the existing UI elements into a bug-free system.
Developer will qualify for our bigger project based on:
1) Quality of work
2) Efficiency of work
4) Meeting deadlines
5) Quality of code
6) Misc. tasks.
