Web Developer needed to create next-gen media aggregator prototype
We have a customer who is interested in creating news aggregation prototype.
The general ideas is the site will leverage RSS feeds, checking them regularly, pulling in new articles. The backend that you will create will organize these articles into preset categories.
The Front end will display stories that are categorized together in a unique layout. They may also want to pull in videos as well ans display them along side the articles.
The sources of these stories will be Blogs and News sites.Each one will have an RSS feed to pull from.
This is an initial prototype to validate some assumptions, but must be fully functioning! They would also like it to be responsive. Because it is just a prototype, using a template to help with some of the grunt work is ok.
The Client will provide examples, list of blogs/news sites, categories, layout example and any other information you might need.
You should be:
- A PHP or Ruby on Rails developer
- Have some UI/UX experience
- Prototyping experience
- Have examples of Web Apps you've created before
- Aggregation experience a HUGE plus.
We look forward to reviewing your applications. Make sure to put NEXT-GEN in the response or else you will be deleted.
PS the price is just a place holder, we'll discuss budgets with the right candidates.
