Long Term iOS Team Wanted

Long Term iOS Team Wanted

Closed - This job posting has been filled and work has been completed.

Job Description

Endgame Apps aims to deliver quality simple yet viral applications. Focused on the long term, we’re not interested in one-hit wonder applications, but rather apps that will provide continuous value.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

I'm looking for a reliable team that is timely in communication and in delivering the project on time and in budget. So if your team is detail-oriented and meets all of the above, then you're who I'm looking for!

Extra kudos if you have an in-house designer/team so I don’t have to go looking for one.
Looking for native app development, but if you can convince me to use Appcelerator or PhoneGap…that could work too.

US & Canada development shops preferred.

Since I am looking for a long-term engagement, I'll need to make sure you pass the airport test. Will include a quick video chat over Skype 

Job Description:

PLEASE NOTE:
**My budget is flexible up to $5,000 – but to start out I’m capping it at around $1,000. Think of it as a test for us to know each other. If we’re getting hitched, we need to be able to provide each other mutual benefit.
**Posting as a fixed bid project, but I’m open to changing it to hourly as long as you provide me with an estimated bid and cap
**If you are interested in applying, please read the following and re-iterate the job description, along with a brief intro of yourself, and any relevant applications you have developed so I know you actually read it
