Job Description

First off, whoever does this job for me, that person will be in my books for life. Any work I have will go straight to him/her/them.

I am the project manager of a brand new travel website and as my posting title indicates, I need a web developer to create a booking engine and an extranet.

The Booking Engine:
Go to www.expedia.com go to www.bookit.com or go to www.hotels.com. See their engines, I want one like that, but not exactly like that, different and better, and I want it built from scratch by someone who knows what he is doing.

The Extranet:
Designing extranets are easy, I can do that to, but I am not looking for ordinary extranets where you just share restricted content, I am looking for something like www.hotelextranet.com You can't login there so I am attaching some screenshots of what the inside and outside design looks like and again it's not only about design, it's about how that extranet let's hotel managers update their hotel room statuses, bookings, and rates in real time. I want an extranet where hotel owners can sign up and they can control which rooms they want to advertise, an extranet where they can frequently change the rates for those rooms, an extranet where they can receive online bookings through email and fax through the extranet, and a whole lot of more features that I will discuss with the right person. If you are a good developer and if you are fast, I need you to work with me. I want that and i also want that built from scratch.

Some details:

This is not for a single hotel or a single chain of hotels, This is for every hotel that wants to list their property in my website. So keep that in mind while developing the extranet.

This will be a site like expedia and hotels.com so you must integrate payment gateways and configure them in such a way that we can cut a commission from bookings.

I am going to thoroughly test my applicants before I hire because this is important. You should have advanced knowledge in PHP, MySQL, and AJAX (optional but preferred) My website will be designed and ready to go, so all you have to do is focus on the booking engine and the extranet and after finished we will integrate them and see how it works.

I am an involved client. So I will be by your side at every step of the development and I will review every part of the design and development before I tell you to move on to the next step. Hope to find the right developer. Thanks for reading please write ALOHa at the top of your cover letter to let me know you read my job posting.
