We need assistance with a C build script running on Ubuntu which a former staff person created and is not working when used with a different branch of the source code.
We need the contractor to examine the error, find the cause and fix the script so we can make builds from the repository.
Key skills required are familiarity with Linux (we use Ubuntu), C, svn, make files and Linux shell scripts.
Absolutely required - confidentiality and trust - we don't want our source messed up or copied.
Prized qualities - friendliness and congeniality (we are nice people and like to work with nice people); being able to contact relatively quickly by email and/or Skype.
Perfect English not required, but should be at least able to communicate sufficiently in English to avoid misunderstandings.
To be honest, we are a very very tiny company with a very small budget and our own salaries are unbelievably small. So that is why we are reaching out to people in areas with a lower cost of living. Not because we don't value your work, but because we cannot afford to pay much.
However, for the right person, we could consider turning this into a regular monthly arrangement.
