Combined web app and mobile app solution

Closed - This job posting has been filled.

Job Description

We are looking for a talented developer / team of developers & graphic designers who can help us build a “minimum viable product” of a service comprised of a website & mobile app built on the Heroku platform. The web app functionality and scope of use will be different from the mobile app, but much of the content and logic will be shared by both apps via an API.

We need to work with someone proficient in responsive web design, the web app design & content should be adjusted to the size of screen being used.

The mobile app should be built on HTML5 & CSS, but some Objective C experience will be necessary as well. Experience in building location based apps using Google Maps API is a must, experience with PhoneGap Geolocation also appreciated.

The system needs to be able to gather the travel distance and time between two locations using Google Maps API.

Please respond with examples of your previous work that you feel is relevant in this context, and begin your message with “MVP” to indicate that you have read this description. More detailed information about the scope of the project will be sent to all contractors of interest. We set the budget at 5k USD now as an indication but are prepared to increase it if necessary.

We would like the web app & mobile app to be powered by the following services & languages (open to other suggestions together with motivations).

Ruby on Rails
Objective C
Apache Cordova

Facebook & Twitter integration.
