Job Description


For the re-implementation of a medium sized multi-lingual website we are looking for a dedicated, motivated and flexible developer. You should have solid experience in front-end and back-end development based on object-oriented PHP, HTML, Javascript and CSS. During the project, we work with agile methods. The rough project plan is determined by us. During the implementation, we will review the progress in a sandbox installation regularly. Experience with agile and iterative project management methods are therefore advantageous.

The development of the project is carried out based on an existing installation of our CMS "SallyCMS". Your remit is the development of individual components and all necessary templates. The already existing and to be re-implementated website can and should be used as a guide for assessment and in particular for the development.

Before the start of the project there will be a kick-off meeting at Google-Hangout or telco via Skype or phone. Support for the incorporation into the SallyCMS, and direct support of the conceptual components of the project during the development are possible and desirable.

We hope to establish good cooperation and an optimal course of the project.

Detailed Project

The website features a two-stage navigation, maintained through the CMS.
Languages in the frontend are switchable, they are limited to English, German and Dutch.
Corresponding configurations and sample implementation and documentation are available. The basic system is made available by us and offers many entry points into the implementation.

Based on the current needs and requirements, there are two templates to implement - a landing-page-template and a template for the presentation of a page, which specifies the default layout. The given layout is kept in a slim and simple presentation.

The start page template provides an overview in visual and textual form, the default template includes the navigation as well as language-navigation, search and the ability to output any content through the CMS.

SallyCMS provides the ability to integrate existing and proprietary modules. These are PHP scripts that allow input and output, in the frontend and in the backend. The implementation of the following modules are part of the deployment:

Implementation of a module for the representation of project datasets. The output is done through markers on a Google Maps map (API version 3). Filtering of the markers and customizing the look of the standard Google Map markers are also included.

Adaptation of an existing module to output images.

Adaptation of an existing module to output a video from YouTube.

Text Editor
Adaptation of an existing module to output text.

Various derived modules
Also some Sally modules which are to be based on, in combination, and on a modification of the said modules, specific for other page content.

Project Planning
The term of the development should not exceed three weeks and will start on 19.11.2012.
Timing and sequence of implementation lies with us and will be discussed in the kick-off meeting.

To work in a team structured and smoothly, we use
via the Services of and our hosting at,
Mercurial as version management and Redmine as a ticket system.
Both services require a registration and should be created before starting the project.

Please note in the bid, that we are flexible in pricing only before adoption. During the term of the project the agreements made before adoption are binding.
Layouts and detailed information may be requested for a better assessment.

In case of good cooperation follow-up orders and a longer and closer cooperation are appreciated.
