Here’s The Company’s Expectations
•Full time focus on this one project. We don’t want your attention spread, we want you to work solely on our project.
•To challenge us, tell us we are idiots if we are being one. In other words, don’t blindly listen to us.
•We are not your boss, we are partners.
•But we do have one boss: The gamers. That means we do what’s best for them.
•When questions about building a feature arise, we consult gamers that will be using the product. We don’t guess.
•You must have a track record for completing projects. Working them through to completion.
•Too many web developers just go 80%. You must be a 100% or we can’t work together.
•You must be a problem solver. Don’t come to me with problems, come to me with a problem and then the potential solutions for the problem. Then we can brainstorm and pick one of the solutions. We don’t expect you to know solutions to problems, we expect you to consult forums and use Google to find solutions to problems on your own. We want a driver, not someone we have to babysit
•To be interested in the success of this project after version 1.0. Version 1.0 will just be the beginning and we will need your help after we release the first version.
•You will have to help with support once the project is live. Expect to answer 5 emails per day regarding support.
•To release features on time. (You set time frames, not us, so this shouldn’t be a challenge).
•When releasing a feature, bug test it yourself before showing us. Don’t show us a feature you have not tested once. We will go through all features to double check them, but we are not your initial bug tester.
•Accurate time quotes on development time frames. You do not have to be 100% accurate. But do not tell us a time frame you think will make us happy. Tell us a time frame that you can complete the work in.
We are only going to hire US developers. Make sure to include the word “A Class Developer” at the end of the proposal.
