Build a prototype web application (hyperlocal.football) to be piloted in Cambridge, UK in August 2018

Looking for a Websites, IT & Software Freelancer

Hello, Thanks for your time. Hoof Media Limited, a niche sports publisher, is looking for passionate grassroots football (soccer) fan & Node.js or Vue.js developer in this World Cup year to build a football centric story-telling service. Aiming to discover computer programming's answer to rising stars Ryan Sessegnon or Beth Mead - if that's you, read on... I'm a former sports reporter with over 10 years' experience at The Observer, London. Now as the co-founder of a digital media start-up, hoof media limited, would-be publisher of hyperlocal.football; a football centric story-telling service, I am trying to team up with a streetwise node.js developer to make good things happen for a small, passionate community of football loving folk in Cambridgeshire, and beyond. I'm looking for someone with bags of potential and passion, and, in time, the combined leadership qualities of Arsenal's former captain, Tony Adams, and the touch, artistry and creative genius of the classy-yet-vertically-challenged Gianfranco Zola to help create a Medium-like publishing platform which allows football folk to express themselves while indexing the long tail of football in Cambridgeshire from A to Z. Tall order, I know. But it will be fun. The starting gun is smoking and the finished prototype needs to be ready for the start of the 2018/19 season which kicks off this August, so I'm keen not to waste any time. Please do get in touch if you feel you have a shared desire, know-how and tenacity to do great things and help build a clearly defined prototype/MVP from sratch. Look forward to hearing from you. Thanks for your time and best regards, Sam - co-founder, www.hyperlocal.football Overview: A tiny, bootstrapped media start-up and would-be publisher of niche sports content website, hyperlocal.football, an online pro:am publishing community platform located behind the walled garden of mainstream media. Created by the most passionate and trustworthy on-the-ground storytellers in the world for the people who care about it most, it is a place to read, write, tag and interact with the footballers and stories that matter most. Think Medium.com with an editorial twist of Byline.com's crowdfunded journalism aimed at football folk. hyperlocal.football has boots on the ground in the heart of your community and is powered by Footie.Cards, a digital-to-physical collectible card game based on augmented reality and blockchain technology. Think About.me meets Panini stickers 2.0. Hoof Media will also publish FarPost.tv, the exotic Brazilian sandy beach to hyperlocal.football's parochial playing field, a publishing and travel recommendation platform based on low-budget tours to compelling, far-flung football-centric destinations that inspire. Discover what should be on your bucket list and take a break from the norm - experience football sub culture, worldwide music, local street food and casual fashion in the four corners of the world and everywhere in between. Think Copa90 meets Travelzoo. ++++++We're hiring
