Part-time UI/UX Ninja to enhance and maintain pretty interesting User Interface (primarily Flex/AS4; Android maybe iPhone)
Location – Anywhere but prefer Washington DC / Baltimore
(The budget above is an example range for individual tasks.)
We are a small but well-funded start-up focusing on “knowledge discovery”: unstructured text analysis and visualization.
Our primary focus is the development of a cloud-based extraction, storage, and analytics engine.
This engine has a REST API, and we have also developed a Flex-based framework GUI within which customers can develop their own visualization widgets. We have developed a number of basic visualization widgets to get people up and running and act as templates for future development.
We are looking for a freelance developer preferably near us (anywhere from Baltimore, Washington DC to Fredericksburg) experienced in Flex and GUI development including UI/UX design to work part time on the following sorts of things:
Improving the look-and-feel of the existing GUI elements
New visualization widgets (normally we’ll develop the logic/analytics, and encapsulate that away from the code you’d develop as far as possible)
Add GUI support within the framework for new functions we develop
Potentially develop new widgets for customers on our behalf
Potentially, porting the Flex widgets over to other technologies as embeddable components (Drupal, DHTML, Shindig, iGoogle)
Must have a portfolio and references
Some experience in designing analytics applications would be preferred
Ability to work quickly and precisely
We are looking to improve the design of the application in order to make it look more professional initially through a re-skinning job only. In essence, we require someone to take the current design as a basis and make it look clean, simple, professional and have that ‘wow’ factor.
We’re looking for a flexible developer who doesn’t mind working as part of a team.
We expect that there will be a steady stream of small tasks over the next 12 months, and are therefore hoping that we will form a long term relationship for as long as it makes sense.
