Online Education Platform (Experienced Only)

Online Education Platform (Experienced Only)


Job Description

Similar to Udemy, we want to build an Online Education platform, that allows teachers to upload their content to our servers, which can then be streamed by students for a set fee.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Since we will be hosting the video content ourselves, we would require someone who has experience with developing self-hosting websites. Someone with experience with dedicated servers, VMs etc is CRITICAL.

We require an experienced, original, professional who can develop a bespoke website within an agreed timeframe. We want our site to be found easily, therefore our developer(s) would need to understand the importance of building search-engine friendly webpages. Fluent english speaking candidates are a must, since we have experienced translation issues in the past.

Our website could potentially become complex, therefore we need a developer who is very creative and could find innovative ways to solving our current problems. As a result of the potential complexities, we cannot accept developers who cut corners or develop mediocre code.

We wish to develop an iPhone & iPad application.
