I need someone with solid skills in the development of an e-Commerce platform. Magento preferred, but open to other frameworks or platforms.
The ideal candidate has a portfolio of completed projects or can otherwise demonstrate a high level of aptitude developing the most common functions around an established eCommerce platform.
I will handle the copywriting, wireframing, HTML and CSS.
I've managed a handful of website and app development projects and can clearly articulate technical requirements to a developer with a solid grasp of English. Inversely, I'll expect the selected candidate to clearly and honestly articulate his/her requirements and ability to deliver the final product. This includes, at a minimum, expected hours to complete the project, additional professionals or skillsets needed to deliver the product, minimum and maximum number of days/weeks/months needed to launch a testable prototype and a live version.
I'm a front-end guy who can manage a client, manage a project, write good copy and make things look pretty. For this client, I also happen to know the product and the market intimately. For this reason, I'm treading outside of my depth a bit with the hope that a solid partner will back me up in the areas where I'm not so sharp or totally ignorant.
Hoping that you'll be similarly honest about your capabilities. A great proposal will help me understand what you're about, and just as importantly, help me understand what else and who else we'll need to pull this off, make my client happy, and give us all a project we'll be proud to exhibit.
