I hired a developer to build out a site for me, Ritely.com. The site worked in the beginning, but after several hundred posts were made to it, the site loadtime dropped to 4-6 seconds per pageview. This is too slow, it needs to be under one second.
I believe the speed needs to be optimized by either setting up a cache or optimizing the DB queries ...
Skills: mysql, html, php, zend
“I had an Indian developer charging me $15/hr and he spent over 15 hours trying to figure out how to optimize the speed of my website. I was losing too much time waiting for him to figure it out, so I ended that contract. I found Jonathan instead, who charged me $25/hr, and he figured out my speed issue in under 2 hours. Jonathan is just getting started on elance, I can definitely recommend him, and you should hire him soon because I am sure his rates will go up once he builds up his client book.
