I am looking for a electrical engineer in Europe or Africa (in the following time zones GMT 0, GMT +1, GMT +2, or GMT +3) to convert a functional specification into a circuit design
Although the circuit will likely use an ESP8266, I do not require that you have any experience with the ESP8266. Instead, any significant microcontroller experience will suffice. In other words, if you have experience with a PIC, STM, AVR, FREESCALE, NXP or Zilog that would suffice.
Also, this is not a PCB layout job. That will come later. This is a circuit design project. In this project you will *not* be required to create Gerber files.
Finding work on sites like Freelancer can be tedious and time-consuming for engineers. But it is also difficult for people like me with projects looking for engineers to work with. Therefore, to help me choose a suitable candidate I propose to pay you for one hour of your time (as a sort of “paid tryout”) to review my functional specification and provide me general and incomplete advice in the form of a brief report about how you suggest I proceed with my project.
Most engineers have completed this project have chosen to create a circuit diagram with some accompanying notes.
But I would also accept a “written report” or an audio report that might be approximately five to ten minutes in length, or an audio and video report (for example, an MPEG-4 file) that might be approximately five to ten minutes in length. If you were to create an audio or audio and video report I would not expect you to edit it at all
At this point I do not want to waste your time. Therefore, please do not bother writing up a customized response to this advertisement. Instead, if you are interested in this project please only take the time to send me a response that includes the sentences,
“I would charge you $X for one hour of my time to evaluate your functional design and provide you with a brief report” where X is your rate in US dollars.
"If we were to work together on an hourly basis I would require that I receive $Y for each hour I worked for you."
$Y is *not* the amount of money I would pay you on Freelancer. Instead $Y is the amount of money you would *receive*.
If we were to work together initially I would probably authorize you to work for only one hour at a time. If our relationship were to continue then I would probably authorize you to work two to three hours at a time. By limiting the number of hours you work at a time, I would be able to avoid the need to create detailed specifications for you because I would be able to regularly check on the work you were doing for me.
On the other hand, you would not need to worry about being paid because I would pay you very frequently for one or two or three hours of work at a time.
I have found that this approach works much better than trying to create detailed project requirements with milestone payments. In theory detailed project requirements with milestone payments seem sensible. But I have found in practice they are actually not usually feasible.
As I presume you know, the amount I would pay you on Freelancer is not the same as the amount of money you would receive. I am asking you to ignore the Freelancer fees and associated money transfer fees, bank fees, etcetera and instead focus on the amount of money you require to actually receive.
Perhaps you are thinking, “But those fees must be paid! If we were to work together, I would pay you enough extra when I paid you on Freelancer to compensate you for those fees.
In other words, imagine how much money you want in your pocket for each hour you worked for me except for one thing: fees such as government taxes, registration fees, license fees, operating fees, or frankly, any other fees you would need to pay “in real life.” You would be responsible for paying all of those yourself.
