Two years ago, my partner built an excel-based model for a few big construction companies in the north east United States. They basically use it to enter in daily reports, look up reports by day and by item, invoice the state/county/town, and invoice their sub-contractors.
There have been numerous requests for him to transform this into a website and allow them the convenience of updating their reports on-site or remotely from their office along with tracking their team's projects. It's actually very basic at its core. It's just entering data, storing it in a database, and then being able to query the database. It's as simple of an idea as that, and people are willing to pay good money for this.
Preferred Additional Experience:
• SQL Server (Design and query)
We will be taking about two weeks to collect applications for the development position. An ideal application would include a brief bio, a list of qualifications, including those listed above with number of years of experience with each. In addition, a small code sample in a language of your choosing.
Once the initial two weeks go by, we will start to narrow down and schedule interviews with select applicants.
Once we have selected a developer, we will schedule requirements meetings via skype or a similar video chat program to ensure that all requirements are stated clearly up front. I will be available for questions during EST daylight hours (8am-10pm) should there be confusion. We will schedule weekly check-ins for status and any setbacks that may appear during the development process. We are currently estimating that the project will take one to two months, depending on development speed and experience.
