The Chess Site Description
The Chess Site is a startup company that was established in 2010. The purpose of the site is to become one of the leaders in the chess industry. The online e-commerce was recently launched and a few other segments will be launched in the future. Web Developers are a critical part of developing these future segments, reconstructing the site, creating an innovative site, working with advertisers and marketing groups, learning about business development, and improving traffic to the site. This project is unique, interesting, and intellectually challenging. The rewards is that your work will be utilized as your portfolio. In other words, what you create under the guidelines of the founder will reflect your work ethics, innovation, capabilities, and will help your resume. A letter of recommendation will be given at the culmination of the project. In addition, certain “prices” will be given for the best developer at different stages of the project. The environment is fun but professional. If you want to work remotely, you must have full access to different methods of communication, including text, emails, smoke signals and wizard mail (just kidding about the last two). Our ideal candidates must have a CLEAR understanding/knowledge of web development. We are ideally looking for 3 candidates that are reliable, efficient, trustworthy, and deeply knowledgeable about web development. The ideal candidate has a passion to create something unique and exciting. It is not necessary to have knowledge about chess, although it is a plus. Only send your resume or cover letter!
