I am looking for a development partner to work with me on several Magento-based projects. I require a provider who can handle the full stack from theme customisation through to plugin management. I will handle the hosting arrangement, and need a good developer who can set up the front-end.
A successful engagement for me is one where the work is done to my satisfaction, is professionally completed and I am well informed the whole way through. I am not looking for the cheapest provider, I am looking for the most effective. If the first project is successful, we will do many projects together.
My projects are interesting in that they are new startups and I am open to a development partner who has ideas and contributes to the concepts. I would like to form a long-term relationship that is built on mutual respect.
Please show me examples of the depth of experience you have with Magento - have you upgraded versions, have you debugged extensions, etc. I don't want people who have just installed a theme.
In terms of skills and expertise:
- You should use a Source Control tool (esp. BitBucket or GitHub)
- You have PHP experience beyond Magento
- You can create good quality, maintainable code (PHP, CSS, JS and HTML)
- You are comfortable with Databases
- You test your own work, I don't want to be given code which does not work or do what I asked
