This is challenging, but interesting opportunity for real professional-programmer.
Consider this as a test of your skills and attitude.
If you fit I will offer you permanent chain of projects. If you need just a few bucks for beer, you got to the wrong place. I am looking the professional, not code-for-beer person. Also I prefer to not read BS about "leading service provider". If you wish to play "company director" (I saw a few last month), it's OK with me, BUT ... please send the official state registration and corporate financial statements with your bid. Otherwise just be programmer. This is who I really need.
I need to see programmer infront of me, not sales, not marketing, not project reseller, not translator, not director.... PROGRAMMER!

Please provide info about your availability (time plan to work & when able to start). Please don't send the links unless they illustrate your skills in real debugging/troubleshooting or the large eCommerce system. Do not apply if you cannot work with existing code or if your brain rejects previous coder's logic. Example provided for demo purpose only. No reservation of tasks because project is changes too fast and because I have 2 evaporized programmers. I had too many "programmers" who took the work and never responded. I cannot loose the time again and again. So tasks will be given at the moment of start. I will provide you as much assistance as you need. I insist on real-time methods of study of the system. I will work one-on-one with you reviewing the code as long as you will need to understand the logic and features that ned to be fixed / added. This is the most sufficient method for my situation.
Your bid "$X for Z Days" means real $X amount of real money for real Z days of work. No tricks please.
