We are an agency based in California. We work with a range of team members around the world and have been in business since 2005.
We have recently started a Magento project with our developer. However, we have needed to move that developer to another priority project and therefore need to find a new Magento developer for this project.
*please read this entire post, as we will know if you don't...
Here are the initial specifications:
-We have purchased the theme at http://www.templatemonster.com/magento-themes/40378.html. We have all files, including PSD files. Please look at the specific technical details of the theme on the above URL, as this shows the coding of the theme. This will ensure you can work on the theme.
-The theme has been installed at http://archway.localbusinessspot.com. However, it has not been configured as we need according to the below page layouts.
-We have detailed sketches for each page on the website that shows where page elements should be placed. I have attached the homepage layout and product page so you can see our level of detail.
We are experienced in working with developers. To complete this project, you will be provided with the following:
-Detailed sketches for each page page layout on the site. For example, homepage, product listings, product page, etc.
-Website Map, a spreadsheet that lists every page on the website, where this page appears in navigation, the page layout to be used, etc.
-Product Map, a spreadsheet that lists all products to be on the site, info re: each product (sku #, picture file(s), etc.). We will format this in a way where you can import it into Magento
-Other specificaion details, such as user experience for specific features such as wish list, shopping cart, etc.
In short, we will be specific with you and ask you to implement. When you respond to this post, please start your reply with "yes, yes I read your post" so we know you read through this entire post.
We will work with you on an hourly basis for this project. We would like to estimate the amount of time required for different phases of the project so that we have a proper budget with you. Therefore, please include in your reply an approximate estimated # of hours for the following separately.
-configuring theme to use layout shown in attached PDF. Do not include the "search widget" in this estimate. That will be separate below.
-configuring product page to use layout shown in attached PDF
-configuring search widget on homepage to be usable, such as enabling user to enter search requirements. Then, this will take them to product listings with this search.
-configuring misc store functionality, such as merchant account, wish listing, shopping cart functions, etc. These are normal magento settings.
*There are additional details we'll provide for the project, but we want estimates on the above to compare you to other providers.
In your reply, please be sure to include:
-The separate estimates noted above
-2-3 example Magento websites you have created
-Why you think you are best qualified for this project
Note that this will not be the only Magento project we work on. We are an agency working with many clients and launching 3-4 businesses of our own each year. We work with our team members for a long time when they do well - our current developer has been with us for 4 years. If you do well, we would be happy to work together long term.
We look forward to your reply
TIMING: We are looking to have you take over this project right away. We want to launch the website the first week in January and are prepared to spend time with you throughout this month getting the project done.
If you're unable to work on the project right away and throughout the rest of the month, please let us know this in your reply.
Skills: import, pdf
