PLEASE READ THIS COMPLETELY BEFORE APPLYING.
This is a technically complicated OPTIMISATION project for a medium sized, very busy web site which uses heavy object orientation.
Specifically we require someone with a very strong grasp of object orientation, and knowledge of how to minimise the size of served web pages while keeping in mind various browser limitations (eg Safari).
This is NOT simply a matter of gzipping a few CSS and JS files and setting a user-side cache - although these are the areas that need to be optimised. Our JS is passed via a routing object and needs to be carefully structured so they are served in the most efficient manner to all types of browsers. There may also be value in using .js from googleapis.
Would suit someone who likes puzzles and the challenge of squeezing the best possible performance out a site.
Additional work will follow subject to the quality of the result.
