Job Description

Develop a lightweight, custom CMS solution for our casual game portal.

The CMS will manage the games and their attributes, RSS/JSON feeds, and homepage's slider/marquee entries (game previews, promos, reviews, etc).

Must be written in PHP (website sits on LAMP stack). Clean code; OOP when it makes sense to do so. Must integrate with existing site. Code will be provided to facilitate this. From a design standpoint, should be user friendly, simple UI, and match the theme of current website (CSS and examples will be provided).

This MUST be built from the ground up, not from an existing CMS platform. Must be secure. Developer should be familiar with XSS and SQL injection prevention practices.

Bonus points for experience with jQuery, Ajax, Flash/AS3, HTML5/canvas - there may be future opportunities.

Applicants must provide portfolio (either in oDesk or external). Must be good communicator - I expect frequent updates and discussions.
