We are a small start-up company that is attempting to build a Daily Fantasy Sports Game, where users can compete for cash daily.
Our goal is to allow our users to draft a fantasy sports team of athletes in either the NBA, NHL, NFL, or MLB and possibly a concept mix of the sports. Once you complete that draft you can either challenge a friend, a random member or allow us to automatically assign an opponent. Each entry has an entry fee decided by the individual who's making the challenge and that entry fee has to be accepted by the opponent.
In the case of the NFL, the users will draft a team for the entire week.
The winner is decided by a points system assigned to goals, assists, shots, touchdowns, catches etc depending on what sport.
If the entry fee was $20 then the winner takes all meaning $40 (essentially winning the opponents entry fee), minus a small percentage taken by us.
Need to have admin control to input player statistics, player names, injury reports etc. We have a 3rd party which will source the live data feed to incorporate into our website to have live statistics for the users fantasy team. Need to have a database for all the new members that sign up and a database for the sports players name. A payment application, most likely pay pal for users to deposit and withdrawal money. Need to have a drag and drop feature incorporated with a player pool so users can make their fantasy team.
There are detailed explanations on what else we need, but can not discuss until you have been hired and signed a confidentiality agreement.
We will start with 1 sport first, which will be american baseball. To keep our project simple in the beginning, we will start with 1 sport, american baseball.
Candidate will also be hired for our future expansion to other sports, such as Basketball and Football.
We need our candidate to have a clear understanding to what type of website we are attempting to build. There are a few websites that are similar to our idea so please check out these websites listed below to get a feel for what we are attempting to accomplish.
We want a similar design and site layout that resembles www.fanduel.com.
We want to have most of the options that are on www.fanduel.com as far as chat room to salary capped fantasy games.
I can not stress enough on that fact that our candidate has to have a CLEAR idea on what concept website we are attempting to build.
Again, we are just starting with american baseball, and will begin with american football in June 2012.
Please feel free to ask ANY questions in regarding anything.
If you feel as if you are capable to completing this job but lack the concept of this idea, we can further describe our goals.
