Experience Level: Intermediate

Currently I have a template software (web application) which basically works as a HTML generator. Tags are hard coded into the backed and then can be used continuously in HTML templates to generate the output. For example, a tag for a image gallery is displayed in HTML (i.e. {image_gallery}) and then once this tag is generated along with HTML, it will will show the output. Very easy.

The application was written using PHP with the Kohana Framework which follows the MVC coding pattern.

Now, the issue we have currently is that as we are tied to one contractor who actually made this software for me using PHP, he has now simply gone away for a while and cannot attend any questions or queries. So as you can imagine, this leaves me in a bit of trouble! I then found another great contractor on here and his communication just too poor. So if your applying for this job, please ensure fast communication is something which you hold in high regard. I also sick to death of people disappearing on me, so if you cannot even reply when I need you to (even then I am very understanding) then please don't bother. Only serious people only.

Your job will be to understand the application by viewing all server files in the back end and understanding how EXACTLY our software works and what it does. In order to assist you, I can provide you basic assistance but you as a programmer must understand exactly what you need to to do. But I will of curse be there to guide you. I have original document files for the software which will also help you understand.

After you have understood this small web application and how it works, I will keep you as my main developer for maintaining this application and upgrading it. So if chosen, this will be a long term relationship but don't worry, I'd only need you now and then so you can still go on with your daily freelance work :)

I can provide demo account access (as a user) just so you can get familiar with it from the front end so you understand what this very small web application does and how it works.

Ideal candidate will be:

- EXPERT in PHP programming
- Experience in Kohana Framework (The guide for the framework ( provides a lot of useful information if you have not used the framework before. It’s similar to CodeIgniter)
- Knowledge of MVC coding patten
- Excellent attention to detail
- Clever in ideas and initiatives
- Experience with eBay API (not essential but preffered)

- Honest and reliable

You will need to be a great communicator and answer any emails very quick and very fast. You will also need to be available via Skype for a chat.

Contractors in UK preferred but if you can show me or convince me in your proposal then I will be sure to take a look.

I need ONLY clever PHP programmers here please who love a challenge and can grasp things quite easily as in essense, this application would be very easy to understand. This is a long term position and you will be our main go to guy for our application and to make upgrades on it.


I will pay £15.00 per hour as and when needed, for you to completely understand this software first and how it works, then you will be required just to fix one issue for a test. That's all for this this job. Then once you have understood the application, I will get you to complete the upgrades which involves implementing a subscription method, integrating this whole software into a new theme/user interface, as this application will be one part of a much bigger software in coming months.

After you understand it, and I am confident you do, I will keep paying £15 per hour to fix issues with software or negotiate a fixed price with you to upgrade it. We will need to decide how long it would take to make fixes together. You must NOT cheat me and must be a honest and reliable worker as long term relationship will benefit you more with me, rather making small profit here and there!

Please start your proposal with 'RODL'' to filter out any generic messages..
