We need a part time expert to help us design the technical aspects of a search application backend. We do not expect a lot of programming, but the contractor must possess expertise in backend architecture design for very high scale search application.
This is more of a research phase and we need someone who can guide us through his/her experience to create an extensible structure including (but not limited to) application and database design. Inclusive therein are the suggestions with details to selection of programming language, framework and dbms.
Experience in high-volume text indexing and web crawlers is highly desirable.
This is not a job for new-in-the-field contractors, only highly experienced personnel must apply.
Skills: design, research
