RunGroup is looking for a developer for its existing iOS and Android application built with Sencha Touch (familiarity with the Sencha Touch framework is preferred but not essential). The ideal candidate would also be able to manage the PHP and MySQL backend and be familiar with integrating 3rd party API's (this application integrates with the PushWoosh service). The application is currently built using the PhoneGap Build service, but can be switched to regular PhoneGap / Cordova if required.
***And if you love running, it is a big bonus.***
You can find out more about the RunGroup app at www.rungroup.net.au.
THE WORK TO BE DONE:
We initially require a developer to complete a few minor fixes/tasks for the RunGroup app as follows:
- deleting a few obsolete and test RunGroups that still appear in the app
- fixing a scrolling list limitation for iPhone users
- Investigate and if required add "android.hardware.location.gps" feature to our manifest as per email instructions from googleplay
- assistance with recreating new iOS certificates.
OTHER IMPORTANT NOTES:
If we are happy with the quoted price and quality of the work completing these initial bug fixes and maintenance tasks there is great potential be employed for other ongoing maintenance, planned updates and creation of planned licensed versions for the RunGroup app.
No graphic design work is required. All graphic design will be provided by RunGroup's in-house graphic designer and co-founder.
Our original developer that created the app has offered his assistance in providing any technical explanations of his work and the work needed.
A little bit ABOUT THE RUNGROUP APP AND ITS FOUNDERS:
The RunGroup app is very small two-person 'labour of love' operation founded by a passionate runner and his graphic designer buddy. The app was created to facilitate greater participation in running through RunSharing and making it easier for anyone to find a running group that fits thier abilities, goals, location and timetable. It has been described by media as "like Uber for your running shoes" and has been available for around 12 months with steady growth in users (runners) on every continent on the planet.
We (the founders) are not developers and have very limited knowledge of the backend and developer process. We come from a marketing, PR and graphic design background and bring this significant experience to the project so we would also be interested in any developer that would be interested in discussing an ongoing developer role with RunGroup in exchange for an equity stake in the app to complete a strong team to take the app to another level.
