Required knowledge: Adobe AIR, Wordpress, PHP, MySQL, Ajax
Full-time, long-term, programmer and web designer needed.
Are you an enthusiastic, skilled and creative programmer and web designer? Do you love taking on new challenges and coming up with creative solutions to programming problems? Are you willing to work from home, yet be available to take part in team discussions by skype?
Then you might just be the new team member that we need.
We are a growing online company that is entirely virtual - that means that all our team members work from home. We currently have two full-time programmers and need to add a third and maybe a fourth.
We currently have an urgent need for a new project to be built. Once that is done, there will be plenty of ongoing work for you - from small tweaks to existing sites, to the creation of brand new sites and applications.
Essential Skills required include:
Excellent English skills. All communications with us will be in English, and all code should be well documented in English as well as using english names for variables.
Familiarity with building and hacking Wordpress plugins
server maintenance (Linux )
familiarity with using SVN and TRAC
The current task involves building an AIR desktop application that can interface with our online server and can visit other websites, present the captcha for the human user to solve, and submit to the other website's onine web forms.
Since our heads of department are in British Columbia, Canada (Pacific time zone), we will need you to be available on skype during our normal work hours (give or take an hour or two at each end). This may mean that you are working nights in your time zone. This is essential, as otherwise communication is too difficult. We also expect you to NOT be working on other projects that might distract you from our work.
Pay is based on an hourly rate for a 40 hour week, plus we also offer profit sharing bonuses. And we will even pay you for upto an additional 5-hours per week of self-development time - you can use this time for any type of self-improvement: learning new skills or languages, improving your fitness, or enhancing your spirituality. All we ask is that you report to us with a weekly breakdown of your work and self-improvement activites.
You will be resonsible for your own taxes etc. In that respect you will be working as a contractor. However, all code or other intellectual property that you produce for us will be owned exclusively by us and will be resident on our servers.
If you are interested in a new challenge, please would to complete the following steps:
2. Create a short video cover letter. Record yourself speaking in a 3+ minute video and upload it to YouTube with the title Allegretto Cover Letter. Highlight your passions, motivations for applying, and your love for the internet. Tell us how your skills and expertise would contribute to this stellar team and convince us that you are the right person to join our team.
3. Give us a link to your video, and tell us your salary expectations.
4. As a final step, we will probably give you a very small AIR test project and will want to interview you by skype.
Any questions, please ask!
Please communicate through the PMB
Note: Please don't worry about over-doing your video cover letter—the best cover letters we've seen were around 20 minutes. You don't need special effects or any form of video editing (unless you choose to).
