I have an established software business with current customers in the gaming / sports betting industry. We are currently looking for a PHP programmer with knowledge of Zend framework to head up DevOps for our company. Our software has been seen by top casino and sports book executives and always get great feedback however our business is becoming more competitive and need to add some additional features to stay ahead of the game. We recently hired some full time developers from India who do great work but the main issue is with me trying to manage them and sales and marketing. So we are looking for someone to come on board who can not only do hands on development but also mange the current team for over flow projects. This will allow me to focus 100% on sales and marketing. This person MUST be located in North America, the reason being is that large companies like the ones we deal with want to know there is an American or Canadian DevOps person on hand at all times. Over the past 12 months we have lost out on two $1M+ deals only due to the fact that the devs where not located in North America. So if you are wondering if sales will be an issue they wont be, I know how to get in front of major clients and close big deals, one of our current clients is a publicly traded company. I just need to be able to focus on that end of the business and give the clients to comfort that a North American is there to backup the support for the products we sell. If you think you are the right person and willing to work for for a real opportunity then please send me a PM first so we can schedule a call. Please don't send me random Skype requests, if you are an outsourcing company please don't contact me either if you read the posting then you should know we already have that in place.
