Special Instructions to Applicant:

This posting is a re-advertisement. Applications previously submitted are still being considered. Previous applicants do not need to reapply.

This is a larger project requiring the development of multiple modules comprising an integrated management system. Modules are currently in different states of development (i.e. completed, in progress, not yet started). We have a clear idea of the remaining development we would like to achieve. We will provide general specifications and/or mock-ups before starting development of each new module, but we do not currently have written specifications for the complete project scope. After discussing a new module’s specifications and requirements, then development begins. The freelancer will be expected to provide weekly status updates and the project manager (PM) will be available to answer questions to guide the design. The developer and PM work as a collaborative team and meet virtually using a screenshare 1-3 times per week. Prior development has usually utilized sprint planning to define the next 1-2 weeks of development priorities. This is followed by testing new development at frequent intervals during weekly meetings and the PM providing guidance on minor modifications to improve the user experience. The PM is a subject-matter expert that defines system requirements and provides design guidance but is not an IT professional. The PM also performs testing of new functionality. The PM has experience managing two different lead developers for this project over the last 4 years (first developer for 2.5 years; then a different lead developer for last 1.5 years). Other non-IT subject-matter experts will be consulted when necessary to define system specifications more clearly.

In “Other Supporting Documents”, please include the following as attachments:
•Provide information on your involvement in previous projects and provide links to websites in your portfolio.
•Include a description of your communication style.
•Submit some example source code you have worked on before. It can be a side project or open-source contribution.

This position is open until filled. This employment site is updated on a regular basis. The length of the recruitment and screening process may vary from position to position, depending upon a variety of factors. Should review of your qualifications result in a decision to pursue your candidacy, you will be contacted by phone or email.
