Web application developer(s) needed for the 'Sayana Web' project - a user-friendly online library and language learning system for Indigenous language programs.
Sayana Web will be web-based software with advanced functionality for management, display and sharing of language and cultural materials as well as interactive content. It will be used by Australian Aboriginal communities to preserve cultural materials, to involve community members in language reclamation, to research indigenous languages and to support language teaching.
The software will need to be community-controlled, user-friendly, secure and work well across multiple platforms including mobile devices. It is preferred that the software be developed on a widely used, well supported CMS platform. To build on existing code, Drupal CMS is a leading option however other platforms may also be considered. We have a twelve month timeline for development, July 2017 to June 2018.
Skills required are web design, web application development (HTML, CSS, PHP), expert knowledge of Drupal or other selected CMS, software architecture. You will also need strong communication skills and the ability to work in a very consultative and sensitive way with stakeholders including Aboriginal community members. We will negotiate a fixed price with the successful provider. This is a very substantial project and we anticipate a budget in the tens of thousands $AUD. While we have a preference for developers based in Australia we will consider international developers who have the right skill set.
The Request for Quotation document (uploaded) provides detailed information about the project, the technical requirements and the proposed project management approach, as well as the type of information we will need to make a decision on preferred developer.
