We have an incomplete Drupal 7.56 website and are looking for help to upgrade and finish it. Much of the work for implementing this has already been done-- forms are in place, etc. It is currently hosted on Pantheon, and is intended to launch there once complete.
Unfortunately, the major problem with hiring programmers online is that there are so many scammers that it’s almost impossible to tell who is legitimate and who is not. Reviews can be easily faked along with most everything else on the net.
We would be happy to escrow funds if we were able to set up conditions where we knew our money would be returned to us if the work wasn’t finished. Since Twago does not allow us to set conditions, we are willing to deposit a very small amount into an escrow account to start with and then add funds (and pay the programmer) as each milestone is completed.
This means that the project will need to be divided into clearly measurable milestones with an expected completion date for each. You will also need to bid $1EU for us to escrow, even though we will pay your full bid as the milestones are completed. To be very clear: We are offering payment on completion of each milestone ONLY. We will not pay any money in advance.
We are only interested in working with programmers who are confident enough in their abilities that they are willing to support our website for at least 90 days after launch and preferably longer.
We are willing to pay a generous bonus once the site is complete and up and running for 90 days.
The first chunk we’d like to have done is the Stripe Connect Express implementation. We believe it to be the most challenging piece of work left to be done, and so it serves as a good test. If you can complete this successfully, you can expect offers for more work and additional projects.
It is important for the programmer be able to speak and write fluent English. Please include your Skype ID and a good time to contact you if you decide to bid so we can be sure there won't be any communication issues.
If you have English speaking references, they would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for your consideration.
