We are searching for a Widget guru to build a portal that allows users to register and then custimize their own widget (including skin) and content within parameters that we set. The content will include a mix of their own data in preset locations, presented via text blocks, graphics and sortable lists, as well as optional external content such as weather, news feeds and ad banners. Widgets will need some buttons or tabs in order to switch to certain content. A detailed knowledge of ad serving is also required. Widget should also include a countdown timer option to/since a nominated date.
"Grab" widget sharing functionality over common social media platforms should be included.
Functionality must obviously comply with our high standards and very importantly, simply put, Widget must look GREAT -
Please confirm you are capable of developing the complete portal (i.e. registration engine, content database etc).
Widgets must be cross platform (Win and Mac OS/Browsers) and extend to popular mobile devices (e.g. iPhone, Android, Nokia).
We need to be assured of ownership, hosting independence of all components, privacy, any notified upfront if any intention of third party branding etc associated with your development work.
We will only consider responses from experienced widget developers who provide links to live samples of widgets that they have developed.
We will not accept applications from agencies promising solutions from contracting third party developers.
We have not set a maximum budget at this stage.
