I have a great 5-10 hours/month opportunity with someone with decent software development skills. I work with a company called Leaflight, who handles the acceptance of SNAP (Food Stamps) and Credit Cards at a large percentage of the farmers’ markets in the state. It’s a good organization that’s been around for about 10 years now and is run my great people that truly care about helping people eat well and eat local, no matter what their socioeconomic background.
This past year I built a web frontend/portal system for them (Django, MySQL, etc) that allows Farm Market managers to submit sales (token receipts) online, instead of having to fill out a paper form. This system works very well, and they’d like to expand on it, as well as taking on additional opportunities, such as mobile client development and development of a client on a cutting edge POS (point of sale) platform. I’ve been responsible for helping them out on the technology side for the past year, but unfortunately, I can’t commit the time I’d like to the project anymore as my growing business is consuming pretty much all of it.
This is a great opportunity for anyone would like to put their skills to a very worthwhile use, as well as picking up new and interesting technology along the way. As I said before, the time commitment is rather minimal (5-10 hours per month I’d estimate). It is a volunteer position, and the ideal candidate would have a few years of development under his or her belt, along with being a self-learner/self-starter. Python/Django experience is welcome, but not required (you'd be free to use any technology you want for anything else but this one existing project).
