We're an established company looking for a company/team to partner with to develop a new product. The key components will be:
-- Core SaaS product involving a web crawler with a couple different tasks, fetching data from a couple different APIs, and a reporting/control dashboard. Will need different versions of the crawler working on several different services. (Envision an architecture with a central system, that communicates with the crawlers running on separate servers.
-- Ecommerce / subscription management, including API for creating/editing accounts and subscriptions, admin dashboard for admining subscriptions and orders, customer checkout, and customer dashboard. The system needs to be flexible to work well with subscription and one-time products, all digital/software.
We are located in the US, in Eastern Time zone. We are looking for a team in the Americas or Europe.
