Experience Level: Intermediate
Estimated Job duration: Ongoing
General information for the website: Think 'People Per Hour' but for the entertainment business!
Kind of development: New website from scratch
Description of every page/module: Uknown at this stage
Description of requirements/features: I am the MD of Don't Stay In - and we are looking to launch a new 'sub-service' to our main core offering, providing freelancers in the entertainment business with a simple, clean and efficient market place to find new work - think 'People Per Hour' for the entertainment business.

I am looking for a competent web developer to work alongside our team to help devise, build and implement a 'minimal viable' version of the site. This is a challenge for someone with good communication skills, experience in building bespoke web platforms and with the ability to visualise the long term opportunity.

The successful candidate will become a key member of the ongoing team and may also benefit from our other interests i.e.

Preference will go towards someone with skills across web and mobile, able to 'hack' a phase 1 minimum viable platform together that 'gets us off the ground'. We will then go to market proactively seeking feedback from our users and will then continue to build and refine the service accordingly. You will need to be flexible, open to making quick changes and also committed to the ongoing development of the platform.

Invitations to trial the service will go out to our existing user base (over 8000 venue operators and promoters), as well as our database of over 3000 service providers. We will be targeting photographers, entertainers, musicians and eventually DJs.

The existing Don't Stay In team will assist in getting the project off the ground, then once traction is made, the relevant investment will be raised to continue evolving the platform and building a dedicate team.

Initially I expect phase 1 to include:

Basic freelancer profile including tailored features depending on service provider type
Option for freelancer to upload portfolio of work
Option for buyers to leave feedback / ratings
Peer to peer messaging
Quotation tool allowing freelancers to send proposal which buyer accepts
Payment processing ensuring all transactions are kept within the service
Option to post a job (as a buyer) and allow freelancers to pitch for the work
Basic automated email system ensuring essential notifications are sent
Integrate into a 3rd party invoicing system - maybe something like XERO
Option for buyers to search for a service provider within a set location
Option to filter out search results by service provider type and potentially tags
Basic blog
CMS system allowing us to create and update content pages
Consideration for an escrow type 'holding account' to protect monies paid until job is complete - maybe integrate with an existing escrow service

I am open to all approaches, including customisation of an existing Wordpress theme, existing technologies or something of a similar nature. The task is to get a minimal viable platform live as soon as possible, then once we gain traction re-invest in either a complete re-build, or enhancements of the platform we have.

Please provide your thoughts on how you would approach this and how quickly you can begin. What skills will you bring to the table in addition to core web development?
Extra services needed: Customization, 3rd party integration, Security
