Melbourne, VIC, Australia
Freelance / Casual
3 - 6 months

We are seeking a developer for ongoing development/expansion & tech support. Our platform is custom-built HR software with a lot of scope for functional improvements.

Depending on availability & agreed project planning, hours could range from 3 to 20 hours per week.

Our website handles registrations from individual contractors who want to gain work with us in the education business. Soon we will have a large number of registrations coming through and we want to prepare for growth.

The tech stack is as follows (and is fairly generic) Linux/cPanel MySQL/PhpMyAdmin PHP (custom built) HTML SCSS JavaScript (jQuery/JSON)

Familiarity with large forms/form handling is a bonus (specifically secure file handling).

Our platform requires the addition of the following features & functions:

  • Login areas for two different users & super user
  • Scheduling/booking functions
  • Ratings/feedback for individual jobs
  • Payment collection

We predict that a number of months are required to complete this job and therefore view the project as an ongoing relationship. There is a focus on the ability to work together & communicate, meet deadlines & listen to the build requirements.

Thank you for your interest. Applicants from Melbourne city are preferred.

Hi Sarah,

I'm a Sydney based web developer with over 8 years of PHP development. I have worked on a number of customer facing projects as well as general web sites for businesses. The customer facing projects were built using various technologies mostly database driven.

One such project was for a company in queensland j1LED. I created a customer portal to allow customers to view what signs they had access to which gave them the ability to change the content of the sign, the schedule of the messages etc. This system was continued in house.

Another project I was and still are involved with is Jobsheets, an online job management portal with invoicing, timesheets and job scheduling. This service also has payment collection using a variety of service providers.

Please feel free to discuss with me your project and time frames. My availability would easily fit within your estimated times, however I can be flexible with that.

Hi Sarah,

Happy to travel interstate on a regular basis. How long is this system to operate? 1 year, 5 years?

My business works with clients like you and can provide references from 15 years of development and continual relationship. Please see my profile for LinkedIn information on development and operations experience.

The business website for more information is

We are great at managing technical debt so systems do not become a liability and cost centre on operations.

Given the information, there'd be an upfront cost then a monthly retainer. Our previous maintenance projects would normally run with quarterly hours allocated with extra charged at an on contract reduced rate.

The first week or so would be spent doing discovery - 20-30 hours to learn the current business. Some consultations to get agreed answers/outcomes. Another round of discovery and analysis and a more accurate estimate.

For PHP projects: Ball park: $5000 per quarter inclusive 120 hours then $35/hr Once project is mature: $1000 per quarter includes 30 hours then $35/hr. All ex-GST Travel costs negotiable.

Kind regards Christopher

Hi Sarah, I am a Melbourne-based full stack PHP/MySQL developer, and very interested in working with you. But the rate of $25 per hour is very low for an Australian based developer. Is there any movement possible with this?

Xtreme Soft Solutions

Hi Sarah,

I am Maddy from Xtreme Soft Solutions, a boutique digital agency based in Melbourne.

I read your project description and we are interested in your project. Before we can submit a quote, could you please let me know whether your existing custom-built system is based on any PHP Framework? As we would be adding functionality to an existing custom - built system, it would be handy for us to know this information to assess the skill level and time needed to add above functionality in to your system.

Thank you and looking forward to hear from you.
