I am looking for a Drupal designer/developer familiar with XML and module development for a new website.
This first version will function much like a price comparison website, importing products from a number of sources in various formats (mainly XML, also CSV). The project involves three things:
1. Creating a structure for the website in Drupal. What info is used as Nodes, as Taxonomy and so on, in Drupal. This is the main reason I am paying for the development, as I want it to be flexible, scalable and SEO friendly.
2. Developing the XML import module, which imports products, categories, brands and merchants from various XML (and CSV) formats (one, to start with, additional formats will be commissioned as long as you provide quality work on this project). Imports will be using cron or be manual through the admin interface.
3. Design of a simple site, based on the wireframe in the project outline provided. The module also needs to be able to display, sort and filter search results in searches and categories.
The most important part of this project at this stage is getting the structure in place and importing data on a daily basis.
I am an experienced PHP developer acting as a project manager on this project, so feel free to ask me qualified questions. I lack some Drupal experience but can probably give you the feedback you need, anyway.
PLEASE READ THE SPECIFICS OF THE PROJECT IN THIS DOCUMENT BEFORE POSTING:

Please post your relevant experience, a firm completion date, how much time (hrs) you think the job will take, and a brief description of how you intend to approach the project (including the structure from point 1 above). Relevant links to previously completed work are helpful.
Sincerest thanks for your time. I am looking forward to working with you!
