Employment
Oneders, Chandigarh
Team Lead / Team Lead
2003 - 2005
Oneders was a small startup company which started with a team of four people. We four started off on web-based technologies and I was involved since the initial inception stage till the company grew strong to strength of 50 employees. Since, it was a small company thus I have easily got the chance to try out my hands on different technologies and also, it was required to troubleshoot most of the problems by ourselves only. Thus, I feel it helped me in coming out as a strong individual who is well equipped and capable to handle any sort of projects. Some of the tasks which I was involved in apart from working on the project was creating frameworks which would be later used as backbones for the other projects. Also, created base classes and other smaller reusable components which were used and included as common components in many other projects later.

Payment Terms
We work in two different ways as supported by Elance -

1) HOURLY ASSIGNMENTS -

In hourly arrangements, we used to define weekly project release milestones by dividing the entire project into several weeks while predefined features and modules to be covered in each particular week.

Based on acceptance of each weekly release, customer is liable to pay the pre-agreed amount for that week.

Elance Tracker is used to ensure official progress and tracking of the project.

2) FIXED PRICE ASSIGNMENTS -

Project execution mode would remain the same, however, we prefer to take an advance payment to start the project while working on a fixed price assignment.

Also, the last payment in fixed price assignment remains with the client, until we make the final delivery from our side.

At the end, we handover the entire source code and the project related documentation to our respective customers and the same gets treated as their sole proprietorship.

MyFolio, LLC., Founder/Art Director
I've had a wonderful working relationship with the Zapbuild team since 2008. They've contributed significantly to my large and complex art social networking website through html, php, css, ajax, and mysql web development. I've been able to rely on them to meet my deadlines and provide quality deliverables well within budget. I'm able to communicate with them right in the middle of development through chat and at times need them to work after hours and weekends to meet deadlines. Every time they've gone above and beyond to meet my requests and never complain or charge more than what's agreed upon. They will go out of their way to make sure you're happy. Did I mention how competitive their pricing is for their service? After having worked with over 30 different developers over the course of 3 years, Zapbuild remains the only contractors that I routinely work with today as there is a clear distinction between the zapbuild team and most other web development companies. They have my confidence and trust and I often recommend them to my friends and companies that need web development work. You can't go wrong by going with Zapbuild, there is just too many positives.

Rental Protection Agency, Director
As a long-term client of Zapbuild earlier known as W3Syntactic (W3S) I can give you full confidence in this company. Our agency, the United States based Rental Protection Agency hired this team in 2007 and have kept them on as an important part of our team ever since. I must admit that we were somewhat skeptical about outsourcing such an important aspect of our business to a foreign team. However, after careful consideration we chose this team over 25 other competing programmers/developers. As we tested their abilities to adapt to our needs we quickly discovered that they were very knowledgeable and proficient. No matter the task at hand (and we thrown them some difficult ones) they were able to overachieve to our highest expectations. We've always been able to communicate personally with our developers at any time, their communication is unbeatable. Good contact is a valued characteristic, which is very prominent with this team; I've not had to worry about miss-communications or troubles explaining things. Unlike other companies we've worked with, Zapbuild was able to handle the entire scope of our project from start to finish (from graphic design to custom programming). You can fully trust that Zapbuild will be fair, honest, ethical and most important capable of completing your projects no matter your requirements. The nicest thing about working with this company is the fact that we've been able to work with the same programmers from the beginning, they know our goals and are constantly working to go above our expectations. We are extremely appreciative to have found these experts and highly recommend them to anyone. Scott A. Paxton Director Salt Lake City, Utah, United States

WeOutfitYachts.com offers custom embroidered boating apparel, customized monogrammed and screened apparel for the yacht owner & operator; it provides innovative and cutting edge merchandise necessary to satisfy the needs of the yachting community. Use a stock boating logo, insert your boat name, build a custom logo or upload your own logo for embroidery on shirts, hats, polo shirts, outerwear, pants/shorts, fowl weather gear, shoes, shades, watches, etc. Flash has been used extensively in this project which provides the end users with a tool to design and customize their product. Apart from being an e-commerce application, this website required an extra functionality which should allow the users of the website to put any text, images or their logos on a particular product and this particular feature has been accomplished using Flash. A user is allowed to put text / images for a particular product only if that particular product has been provided with the rights for user customization from the admin by the administrator. Once the user is done with the desired customization and following the checkout process, an email is sent to the administrator with the files (.jpg and .pdf) attached for that product along with the customization performed on it by the user, so that the administrator can further send the same files to the factory to get the exact layout printed on the products before shipping them to the user.
