Seeking Freelancer: Flask API

*I am looking for a freelancer with availability for the next month to work
on the backend API using Flask. If this is you, read on...*
I am the tech lead on a project I'm working on with a partner. Our premise
is that VPNs are in many ways a commodity -- a quality VPN is the same no
matter where you buy it. Our goal is to commoditize the market, by
providing a platform for vpn sellers to pay hosts directly for vpn server
time. Think of it a bit like "incentivized tor". We can discuss in more
detail if you're interested.
We are applying to YC with this company in late March, and as such, we set
a deadline of Feb 14 for launch. We have significant headway on the
networking infrastructure, thanks to help from a VP at Docker. Now it is
time to build the website.
Your tasks will be:
- Work with me to iterate on API design doc
- Write API blueprint using www.apiary.io so we can create mock server
- Use dredd (https://github.com/apiaryio/dredd) for testing against mock
- Implement API in Flask, preferable with flask-restless, but whatever
works for you works for me.
In the meantime, a frontend developer will be working on a Backbone app to
consume the API (hence the mock server).
I am a competent engineer and working with me is a pleasure. Please get in
touch if this is something you are interested in.
