I'm a technology consultant and I'm working with a client in Albany, New York. My client is a merchandise company that wants to develop an e-commerce platform similar to Shopify (http://www.shopify.com/). The difference is that my client will produce the merchandise, manage inventory, and handle shipping for their customers.
I'm looking for Ruby on Rails developers to help me. This is a new Rails project, so there is no legacy cruft to deal with. But the application will need to integrate with the client's back-end accounting system. I will be the technical lead and I will manage the project on site. You, of course, don't need to be on site but readily available (Skype, email, etc.). If all goes well this could turn into regular work.
I'm a software engineer with over 15 years experience. I speak your language so you don't have to worry about justifying your estimates, or being tied up in meetings. I also know the client very well, so the project should go smoothly.
