I wouldn't normally respond to a recruitment thread but this one has me intrigued, solely because of the rate quoted.

I bit of advice...if you're a developer worth his/her salt you should really consider upping that rate to perhaps at least double of what you've stated.  I've been in the position in the distant past of offering a low rate to get one's foot in the door, so I understand, but you have to consider that clients are not looking for cheap (in-expensive) developers but, rather, good value for money.  Such a low rate will often raise a red flag or two, with many clients worrying if the developer is any good.

I know that there's a desire to take this offline, but I posit that the expectation of the type of work requested and the rate is very useful. That conversation might save a potential JS hire hours and hours of potential frustration at the mismatch between the role and rate. I'd almost call it a public service.
