I started a project for a client of ours in Clojure but an emergency project has taken my focus away from the Clojure project. I don't have anyone to put on the Clojure project so, perhaps one of you might be interested?
Full-time would be ideal, but part-time can work if you're like a hot knife through butter.
We're building a web search engine. Our client is a doctor who has a software patent in web search. We're building out his patented idea. (Boo software patents, I know. But he's a really great guy. I figured it was worth it.)
Rather than build everything from scratch, we use the Bing API for basic search and then add our own filtering on top of it.
DynamoDB is our database. We use it to cache results from the Bing API.
This is a milestone-based project, so what I'd like to do is give you a sizable chunk of the $$$ and I'll take a percentage and serve as the account manager. It should come out to about $100/hr or so. Could be higher.
Depending on client interest, there's about[masked] hours left of work on this project.
Current state of the project:
We have a basic implementation up, but we could use some optimization, pagination, to get to the first milestone.
Later milestones include tuning our crappy "NLP" algorithm (fairly simple, I can coach you through this), adding on an iPhone app (we can do the iOS side), and writing a page scraper.
Email me for a link to what we have built. I'd love to walk you through the project.
