Seeking CakePHP developer to help get startup website to launch

We are a seed stage company with a new model to connect independent wellness
professionals (personal trainers, massage therapists) with health-conscious consumers, in
a combination social networking and ecommerce platform.

The foundation for our product was built from the ground up using the CakePHP
framework, however we still have several crucial elements left to complete.

We’re seeking a local SoCal developer (or possibly a small team) who can get up to
speed on our existing code base and then get the product ready for our Beta launch.

Three areas of note that need to be built out:
- custom payment processing system
- search functionality that will include options for city/state/zip code radius
- user generated reviews

The additional work we have and how it all ties together with the existing code base can
be explained in more detail for interested candidates.

As a startup we’re looking for someone who’s not just motivated but also easy going
and willing to roll with the punches as we fine tune the site and get ready to test our
functionality out in the real world.

We’re estimating around two months of work and would mostly likely work out payment
on a per-milestone basis.

Preferred Skills and Experience
- CakePHP, MySQL, AJAX (jQuery)
- Payment processing
- Social media API integration
- Google Maps API integration
- Degree in Computer Science
