We would like to hire a full time engineer to work on a contract basis as their primary focus through Upwork. Projects are to be identified, but we have a lot of them. The following is the job description we've been using. The key thing is guys and gals, we really need people that feel very strong in the entire stack: PHP (OOP, architecture, scaling), Mysql (normalization, scaling and efficiency considerations), Linux (at least an ability to script and to poke around in app config files, etc), and some knowledge of Apache would be helpful at least to a level to understand and be able to talk about load balancing, other issue that may come up. We need people who can work in the back end and some minimal front end work too involving javascript, ajax, frameworks like kingAdmin, even though much of the work would be in back end/database processing. We are hoping the contractor hired can turn into more than that later. You'll play a critical roll in the growth of our company! Never heard of Happy Grasshopper?

We need you to bring it, and by it, we mean your extreme skills along with a desire to make a real difference in the world. So you know, Happy Grasshopper is a meritocracy, meaning that the best ideas win. We embrace a culture of innovation, while always testing, measuring and optimizing our results. Are you willing to contribute? Do you want to make a difference? We need you!
