I am looking for a Swift developer for the development of a travel app. The application allows users to create travel packages to Europe. Users can see pre-made travel packages which includes flights, accommodation, hostels/hotels, and transportation, or they can create their own. Using several travel API's, the user will have the ability to customize their own package. The designs have already been completed. A bulk of the work involves grabbing data from the API's and implementing the logic for which data will be displayed, then hooking that up with the backend and payments. I would like for this to be built on firebase. For this phase, I would like for you to restrict the To destination to one country, which i will tell you once you are hired. The From location will be the users current location + 250 mile driving radius. This will allow the users to see the best price for the To destination in order to determine if it's economical to drive to another airport. Flights, accommodation, tours/activities, and transportation will be based on one European country that I have chosen. Another key component of the app will be the itinerary screen which will display a timeline of the users paid trip.
The app will utilize the following API's and services:
Viator (Activities & Tours)
Expedia (Hotels & Cars)
Advice for getting hired:
1. I'm not looking for someone who is a jack of all trade. I'm looking for someone who lives and breaths iOS. When I see candidates who claim to be masters of iOS/Android/Windows and more, I become skeptical because it means you know a little bit of everything rather than being a master at one thing.
2. Candidates who list major apps like Uber, Lyft, Booking, Expedia, etc. will not be considered because you did not build those apps. In the event that you did work on those apps, you likely wrote less than 5% of the code, which doesn't give me much information about your ability to build an app from scratch.
3. Candidates with fake profiles will not be considered. By submitting a proposal, you should be aware that I will conduct a video interview over Skype or other communication platform. If you are uncomfortable with this, then your proposal will not be considered. I don't care where you are from. I just care about your technical abilities. However, I will not consider you if you are not who you claim to be.
