As you know there are many programmers on Odesk and how can I be sure I am picking the right one? I have seen your work and this is why I am inviting you, what I need to see is someone who can learn an adapt quickly, range of skills and flexibility. I do not care if your expertise level on some part of project is not 100%, but be honest in your own limitations and be wiling to push yourself. This project will cover FIVE areas of development and your role could be small or very intense and can change from day to day. You need to know php moderate and how to parse xml and format to create our own RSS feeds (basic). Must know how to create (basic) android apps and iphone apps and implement SDK from third party apps. Implement push notifications into apps and understand how to use and implement Google Geo Maps with proximity triggers. The good news is all the above mentioned I have examples, documentation and willing to spend some money helping you complete these task if needed. I would like to build in house but have seen php scripts available for purchase as I want to create a simple web form to create custom (appearance) QR Codes and a link shortner again if you can perform this function or need me to purchase script for you to tweak it I am open to that. I have an example php script and documentation as I want to have a php flash cookie so I can track customer accross multiple devices etc. For coupon redemption and ad retargeting. This is the entire scope of projects needed for phase 1 as there are 12 phases I do not want to spend more than a couple of weeks on these projects, You need to be honest if you do not feel you can handle a project I need to be able to have another team member accomplish task. I currently have 4 full time programmers and as they are al working on very large project I am looking to add another full time team member. If you can accomplish first phase quickly and accurately. I can raise pay rate and increase hours. As I picked these 5 task as the easiest and quickest way of finding the right programmer.

A. Create XML/RSS Feed
B. Create Basic Android/Iphone App
C. Add 3rd party sdk to apps.
