I'm a marketing consultant by profession. I have an idea for a new website / company and need a PHP / MySql programmer to help me in creating the website from scratch.
I tried hiring a dedicated programmer before, but it didn't work out too well as he was from another country and the communication took a toll. So this time, I'm looking for programmers only from Mumbai. If you don't stay in Mumbai, please don't apply.
Your skills: you should know how to create shopping carts, affiliate programrs, blogging platforms and install private SSL servers. If you are new to PHP and don't know how to code any of the above, please don't apply.
You'll be working from your own home for the first 1-2 months until the new office is ready. A computer can be provided to you if needed.
Your pay will be determined by your skills. But you can expect to be started off with Rs. 6,000-12,000 per month. Your pay will be increased according to your performance and the progress of the new website.
You'll even receive bonuses on every milestone met. (If the site succeeds as expected, the bonuses can double your pay!)
(You can google my name "Ankesh Kothari" and see some of my non-programming websites and my track record - and you'll see that most of what I've done has succeeded well.)
You will be accountable only to me. This means, when the website is launched and I start hiring new programmers, you can then become the chief programmer / project manager if you've proven yourself to do good work by then.
If your English is not upto the mark, please don't apply.
If you are a team of programmers, please don't apply.
While applying, please post some of the URLs of your work so that I can judge your skills by myself. And please post your expected salary.
In short: if you are a talented and self motivated php / mysql wizard - you'll be treated, paid and promoted well.
