We are in desperate need of a Developer!!

As many of you may have noticed over the past few months the site has become more and more unresponsive and unreliable. This is because our long-time developer Jonathan got an amazing opportunity for a job and no longer has the time to devote to Blend Swap. So we've been without a developer for a while, I was hoping that I'd be able to find a replacement quick enough that no one would ever notice. However, that hasn't been the situation.

Blend Swap does not make a lot of money so we are unable to hire a developer at their full rate, we really need to find someone that would be flexible and willing to work with us. This has been a struggle. So I'm asking for the communitys help. We need a CakePHP developer desperately, if you have experience and are willing to work out a payment arrangement please get in touch with us at matthew[@]blendswap.com

Our perfect developer would have knowledge of:

Infrastructure requirements:

  • Digital Ocean
  • Linux server administration
  • SSH authentication
  • Good knowledge of Git is a must.
  • Node.js 4.0 + Npm
  • Great security practices.

Backend requirements:

  • CakePHP 2.x and up
  • CakePHP REST(ish) API
  • MySQL 5.x and up.
  • Paypal integration.
  • Google for Work integration.
  • Composer dependency management.
  • Grunt tasks, builds and deployments.
  • Cron job management.

Frontend requiremens:

  • Full knowledge of HTML5 and CSS3
  • Good knowledge of SASS preprocessing.
  • jQuery, Underscore,
  • Backbone.js + Backbone.Marionette
  • Require.js structure and build pipeline.
  • Bower dependencies.
  • Grunt tasks, builds and deployments.

Nice to have:

  • Docker + docker-compose
  • Good knowledge about containerization.
  • Webpack build and deployment pipelines.

If we're unable to find a developer that'll work with us, I'm not sure what the future will hold for the site, thank you all for your time and help. -matthew
