Electrical engineer needed to convert a functional specification into a circuit design based around the ESP8266 -- 3

I am looking for a electrical engineer in Europe or Africa (in the following time zones GMT 0, GMT +1, GMT +2, or GMT +3) to convert a functional specification into a circuit design based around the ESP8266.

Finding work on sites like Freelancer can be tedious and time-consuming for engineers. But it is also difficult for people like me with projects looking for engineers to work with. Therefore, to help me choose a suitable candidate I propose to pay you for one hour of your time (as a sort of “paid tryout”) to review my functional specification and provide me general and incomplete advice in the form of a brief report about how you suggest I proceed with my project.

This report could either be a “written report” (like an email) of a few hundred words, or an audio report (for example, an MP3 file) that might be approximately five to ten minutes in length, or an audio and video report (for example, an MPEG-4 file) that might be approximately five to ten minutes in length. If you were to create an audio or audio and video report I would not expect you to edit it at all.

At this point I do not want to waste your time. Therefore, please do not bother writing up a customized response to this advertisement. Instead, if you are interested in this project please only take the time to send me a standard copy/paste response that includes the sentence, “I would charge you $X for one hour of my time to evaluate your functional design and provide you with a brief report” where X is your rate in US dollars. After I look at your profile, if I am interested in possibly working with you, I will reply to you.

Also, please indicate, "If we were to work together on an hourly basis I would require that I receive $Y for each hour I worked for you."

$Y is *not* the amount of money I would pay you on Freelancer.com. Instead $Y is the amount of money you would *receive*.

If we were to work together initially I would probably authorize you to work for only one hour at a time. If our relationship were to continue then I would probably authorize you to work two to three hours at a time. By limiting the number of hours you work at a time, I would be able to avoid the need to create detailed specifications for you because I would be able to regularly check on the work you were doing for me.

On the other hand, you would not need to worry about being paid because I would pay you very frequently for one or two or three hours of work at a time.

I have found that this approach works much better than trying to create detailed project requirements with milestone payments. In theory detailed project requirements with milestone payments seem sensible. But I have found in practice they are actually not usually feasible. In my experience, at the least, detailed project requirements with milestone payments typically lead to misunderstandings, resentment and discord… at the least.

As I presume you know, the amount I would pay you on Freelancer.com is not the same as the amount of money you would receive. I am asking you to ignore the Freelancer.com fees and associated money transfer fees, bank fees, etcetera and instead focus on the amount of money you require to actually receive.

Perhaps you are thinking, “But those fees must be paid! Those fees will not magically disappear!” If we were to work together, I would pay you enough extra when I paid you on Freelancer.com to compensate you for those fees. No magic is involved! I am not a magician. Ok? I hope this makes sense to you.

In other words, imagine how much money you want in your pocket for each hour you worked for me except for one thing: fees such as government taxes (I am thinking of income tax), registration fees, license fees, operating fees, or frankly, any other fees you would need to pay “in real life.” You would be responsible for paying all of those yourself.

Are you confused? Let me give you an example. Freelancer would charge you 20% on the first $500 you would earn working with me. Therefore, if I were to pay you $Z per hour you would only receive $0.8Z per hour for the first $500 I paid you. And I think Freelancer charges other fees as well. Also, I think you would be charged some money transfer fees and perhaps bank or ATM fees as well. Please ignore those fees. I would pay you enough extra to cover those fees.

Of course we would need to calculate the exact percentage, but let us estimate that I might need to pay you 35% more than you actually wanted to receive in order to cover (reimburse you in advance) for those various fees you would need to pay to receive a payment from me via Freelancer.com.

But please do not ignore fees such as government fees (such as income tax), registration fees, license fees, operating fees, etcetera. You would need to pay those yourself. I would not pay any of those for you.
