Note: Unlike previous incarnations of this job. I really need to hire somebody now.
Also since the start is more straightforward, it is less risk for me.
I need to modify a ksh shell script to make it cleaner, more professional and more maintainable. Some options should also be added.
It won't be possible for you to run it, and of course I do not want to spend to much time on testing your work.
We will work a folder in a Google Drive, where there is a git repository. It is important to use git "correctly". You must be efficient at using git.
Communication is through Google Hangouts, where there might be other candidates (Until the work has really started).
You must quickly show that you can and will do the job. It will be ca 10-30 hours until 13 June (deadline). Hopefully we can do a bit before Monday morning. After that you should be quite responsive.
Your application: I only look at answers to questions. In cover letter I only look to experience relevant to UNIX scripting and git. There should be a summary of relevant UpWork experience on these points.
I can pay for a good developer, but I think good ksh should be cheaper than other skills. Also there is no reason not to pick from low cost countries.
