Hi Nathan,

It's definitely a struggle to find quality developers on Freelance markets. That's partially due to the pool of freelancers and partly due to the type of projects that are posted here - they encourage the fly-by-night freelancers who have no commercial or enterprise experience (usually limited to building a contact form on a micro/small business website)., usually claiming to be a "small business", or "boutique agency" when in reality it's just one self-taught person who built a few information websites in Wordpress.

Another key problem to the delivery of projects here is that everyone is a "jack of all trades". In this industry it's just not possible to be a high quality graphic designer for creating the visual design of the website, while also being an expert Front-End Developer who's able to implement those visual designs - and also maintaining a specialisation in Back-End Development across the myriad of web frameworks. Anyone who claims they can do all three is kidding themselves and will always deliver subpar work.

My name's Matt. I've been coding as long as I can remember (over 16 years?). 6 years ago I started a web design company. 3 years ago I closed that down to work at Collabforge as the Technology Lead, delivering enterprise-grade web applications and web platforms for Federal Government (as well as not-for-profits, State, Local, Government-funded organisations, and of course the private sector). I consider myself highly skilled, abreast of all the latest IT trends and more.

Right now I'm doing freelance work after-hours and on weekends, for two reasons. One, my day job demands I focus on IT strategy, product development, sales, project management, team management and more - I love coding, and I want to get back to that in my free time. Two, I enjoy working on mentally stimulating projects and choose my projects carefully (I often turn away simple small business website development jobs, opting for web applications and web platforms which - to me - are a joy to work on).

The real selling point for me, though, is that you’re going to get an agency-quality service. My life partner happens to be a senior front-end developer by trade, and I am (by trade) a senior back-end developer. We also work with a couple of very, very skilled and well-known graphic designers to deliver epic quality for our clients. You’re getting an agency-like service for half, or less, of the cost. The only caveat - which I’ll leave you to consider - is that we’re instead doing the work on weeknights and full-time on weekends (for large projects we’ll reduce our days at work to help you out). For this project, maybe it will just be me (mostly) working but it’s good to know we can offer the full suite.

Anyway - I’ve probably bored you enough! Let me know if you’re interested and I’m happy to send through some relevant client examples as well as discuss timeframes and budget.

Cheers! Matt

Hey there Nathan. Reading through your description I would be happy to quote you and build your application. Having many years of experience building PHP applications we have developed core libraries and used many well supported frameworks to build very robust and reliable applications.

We are midway through a SAAS project at present, which builds upon a multistage development timeline. We are experienced in many aspects of the development timeline and use some great features to stage and develop key components of projects. We have experience in using Git to house repository code for clients. This allows multiple stages of development to key performance indicators.

Hi Nathan,

I have read your job description and I am confident on my skills to provide you the web application as per your requirement. We have already developed many Australian Enterprise apps (signed NDA) that manage bulk data API's. We have also developedmany SMS Portals that send hundreds of requests.

Few questions: You have not clearly define the scope of work and without scope its not possible for us to give you exact quote and time to build the backend and database.

For CMSyou mentioned that you dont want Wordpress or Joomla. For a custom CMS do you prefer the app to be build in PHP or .Net or any other language?

Our portfolio: http://itsourcing.com.au/portfolio

P.S. I just gave you the rough idea for time and give you hourly rate as the scope is not et clear so we can negotiate on it after discussion. Many Thanks IT Sourcing Australia

Hi, Nathan! My team is perfectly able to develop your needs, since we have more than 10 years of experience in digital development. However, we see by your description that some details need to be clarified in order to create a correct alignment of expectations and delivery. Since you mentioned your focus only in backend, but being it a model which could be tested for functionality, we consider it actually a frontend material. Did you mean a browseable wireframe? Depending on the website's size, the complexity can reach unfeasible results, so this value of bid is just a reference, and we put ourselves totally available for more details if you're interested in working with us!
