SOUL CLAP RECORDS Job: General Coder needed STEP TWO INTERVIEW Please read this form and reply to the questions asked. If you could also address any of the things we've mentioned that apply to you. Please take it as an opportunity to go beyond the formal resume stage and let us know personally who you are and why you would be the perfect part of our team. DETAILS ON US: We're an independent, online store, that caters specifically to the Genre of Hip Hop. We sell Music ( Vinyl & CD ), Clothing, Magazines & Art Supplies. Our website is [url removed, login to view] & we are located in Australia. There is also a back end inventory system that is built. Attached are screen shots of the inventory site & a portion of our code for you to sample. Our site is based on the PHP & HTML language. We are constantly thinking of useful additions to the inventory system and the look of our site but are unable to put them in place ourselves so we need someone proficient with this type of language and can not only email but talk over the phone or skype, as jobs come up & put into place our ideas. We look at it as a website maintenance man, someone who is on call to complete jobs quickly, confidentially & professionally. Jobs range from fixing small bugs or faults that arise randomly from time to time, to implementing functions that we think up as we go to help us run the site and are expected to be completed as quick as possible and please be aware, we have been working with coders for years and know how long these things take and any type of stretching or intentional blow outs of quoted times will be quickly picked up by us and is not acceptable. We want not only someone that will undertake tasks well, but will also use your knowledge of the powers of php/html to offer ideas for additions to the functionality, extra tables, smoother operation etc. Some of the best functions of our site we're things suggested to us by coders we we're working with which we hadn't thought of previously. So your input and advice when working with us, is invited and appreciated. The 3 main things that are important to us at Soul Clap Records are Budget, Sticking to timelines & Communication. THINGS WE'D LIKE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU: Since your approaching us to offer a paid service we'd like to clearly understand what we're dealing with. - How long have you been writing code for and are you currently employed by any other companies? - Where in the world will you be doing your work from and what timezone applies to you? - What motivates you as a freelancer? Is this the only type of work you do or are you a student or some other type of worker in the bulk of your time? The reason I ask this is because it's important to know weather or not you will be doing our jobs in your spare time or if coding is what you do all day long. - If English isn't your first language, are you confident speaking English fluently? This is Important as more often that not, to save time, jobs that come up are discussed over the phone until the details are settled on so that you can then go ahead and complete the job. In our experience, emailing back and forward over minor details increases the margin for error due to misunderstanding and can cost days waiting for replies. - How long do you see yourself freelance coding? Are you planning to move on and stop doing this type of work in the near future? - We'd like to pay you in Australian Dollars, are you able to accept this? - How can we contact you? Skype contact name? MSN name? Email? Skype is preferred and if you agree please provide your skype contact name. IT IS IMPORTANT THAT: You understand that your role will be as an on call coder to build in new functions and fix bugs/errors that occur. When working with us, you not only provide your expected time to complete a job but the date and time you expect to begin work on the job. If for any reason at all you cannot stick to the time you have quoted us, either the job time or the job start time, you must contact us and inform us there is a problem with your ability to work and provide an alternative time you can complete our works. At which point we'll decide weather or not we can still work with this time and if we'll still go on with the job. Contact between us is clear, readily available and does not become unavailable without informing us prior to the period of unavailability. You have a sense of humour and personal nature as we're big on relationships. Its majorly important to us that we have a friendly relationship with our worker and tend to lean away from the more formal style of communication and opt for a more relaxed way of addressing each other. If you still feel that you are right for this job then we eagerly await your response, thankyou for taking the time to read this and to continue your application.
