We're startup aiming to enter the online trading platform realm. By mid-September the design phase of our project will be complete. We estimate a total of 20-25 pages. We are building a platform enabling users to buy/sell/trade currencies. The platform will consist of local modules as well as plugins and third party elements (charts, graphs, breaking news sourced from news-sources, etc, market watch, market sentiment, etc).
We haven't yet decided on the framework- but we're hoping the right team will help guide us in the right direction. One key requirement, is that at least one person on your team has some experience in Forex, Stock trading, or similar online activity. We ask for this, as we don't want a team that has limited understanding of the market (and clientele) we'll be serving, to build this project.
An overview of some of the main components will include:
My Settings (Notifications, Privacy, Payment Settings, etc)
Market News (news clips relevant to user's activity/trade pairs)
Watchlist (related to Leaderboard, ability to watch/follow platform leaders)
Copy/Execute trades based on other user's portfolio/trade activity
...and a number of other features. We estimate the entire site will consist of approx. 20-25 pages.
I've personally outsourced many projects over the years to freelancers, and teams all over Asia and Europe. I respectfully ask individuals and teams who deliver quality to apply. Online, everyone and their neighbour's dog promise to deliver 'finest quality, 100% satisfaction guaranteed, unlimited revisions, and on... and on..." however, only a fraction of these people actually deliver results. Communication, accountability, responsiveness, and most importantly- attention to detail (this is a tough one, especially for teams in certain parts of Asia) are key.
We're a serious entity, backed by investors, and seek nothing but the finest. Please provide RELEVANT references to work you've done (do not forward a link to Betty's Cooking Blog you worked on last year), and a quote to deliver the project including cost, and time to complete. I understand, without further details from us a quote will be an estimate, however- based on your quote, your credentials, and past work you've been directly involved in, we will determine whether or not to take a closer look at your application.
Now that the technical stuff is out of the way, we're actually three easy going, experienced entrepreneurs. Working with us will be fun, and rewarding for your career. Feel free to ask any questions about the project, and, in submitting your quote- even if you do consider yourself among the best, do consider the plausible reality that there is likely someone with similar credentials willing to deliver the same work, for less. Be transparent about your skills, reasonable with your offer, and there's a good change we'll contact you.
Thank you for your interest in helping us.
