1. Cover letter example for Experienced PHP developers

Web, Mobile & Software Dev • Web Development

I am TyaJin from Thailand (UTC+8).

Please see my comments based on your requirements:
1) Object model:
- I used UML to develop two similar projects, which exchange XML packages to speed up video broadcasting.

2) Local storage:
- I worked with eAccelerator and familiar with APC. When I was a student, I implemented my own local super-fast simple DB on Java for the University site. 

3) Conflicts resolving:
- I fully understand the requirement. I know how to resolve such collisions on desktop applications, but need more info to figure out how it should work on PHP

4) Simultaneously processing:
- Your solution with EXE files is very interesting, but I have idea how it can be dramatically improved by using system messages technology.

I read and have some questions about your attaches, I would glad to ask them and share my ideas.

Short introduction:
I am very interested in this project because I like PHP coding and working with algorithms, but I am not a database architect/designer.

My profile includes some examples, but not much, because last serious works were done under NDA (it was almost 8 projects).

I worked as system architect in last two projects where I was responsible to design an object model for a development of team.

I do PHP programming more than 5years and within this period I had been working as slave coder, senior developer, team leader and system architect. So, I know all aspect of project development and have great communication skills.

I have experience with the following similar image processing libraries: Google API, GD (great experience), Imagine, Php Graphics Work (less known)

Of course, this work will require strong experience in writing unit test. I would recommend PHPUnit.

If this project will be developed by a team I may suggest to use the following very useful task management systems: Trello, Fogbugz (not free), Bugzilla and Jira.

I worked with all most popular repository systems like: SVN, CVS, BitBucket and GitHub.

My rate:
My rating is 30$, but I am ready to loosen it, because there is only feedback in my profile. Getting feedback is more important for me rather than money. Let start 22$/hr.

Some tasks may require additional research, which will not be included into payment time.

I am ready to do test job if you wish.

I can share the project progress as often as you wish.

Best regards, TyaJin

4. Cover letter example for Management Software Development

Web, Mobile & Software Dev • Web Development
Hello sir

I have 2 years experience in developing similar desktop application for Dothan Regional Airport in Dothan, USA. This system gets lot of metrics using low-level C++ library and saves into Oracle 11g DB.

I was a senior developer who coded critical algorithms on C++ and .Net that communicates with all airport systems like: cooling, fire, access, alarm, network and so on.

AMOMD is using to process and analyze OLAP data. Our system also integrates with internal SOP to inform all staff about any emergencies.

All information was securely available in the Internet via developed SOAP web service coded on C#.

Google Charts was used to visualize current state of the airport systems.

I am new on oDesk, and my rate is 80$/h, but I can provide rough mockups and diagrams of your system without any payments.

I will be available in a month 30h per week.

I like to develop such system and sure that my experience will help you too.

Regards, Robert Johnson

5. Cover letter example for Software Development Database Management

Web, Mobile & Software Dev • Web Development

My name is Maria Hernandez.

I have great expertise in development such systems. For the last 5 years me (inside the team) run 2 projects for automobile ( and computer ( fields with similar functionality.

As you have very tight budget I would recommend two options:
1) Use PHP and MySQL - these technologies are free and supported most of hosting companies. In future if project grows up you can use shards to scale it. The minus - you cannot use this code to mimic the functionality for a desktop application, which you mention above  see the 2nd solution;

2) .Net + MS SQL. The project can be developed using SOAP services which allow you on the first phase develop only web sites and on the second/third phase - desktop/mobile applications with minimum hours just utilizing existing code used for web sites

I would start this project from detailed description of roles and user interfaces, which I can do, and then making a plan of tasks and estimates.

By demand, I can send screenshots of my existing similar projects. Cannot attach here by NDA restrictions

I am available 40h per week and would glad to do this project.

Please be aware that my rate is 45$ per hour. We can negotiate it a little bit.

Do not hesitate if you have any questions.

Please notice, that I am considering other similar offers and must make the decision during this week.

Thank you!!!

8. Cover letter example for .Net Software Developer

Web, Mobile & Software Dev • Web Development

Last 2 years I have been used ASP.NET MVC and WEBAPI - they were mostly used for web sites.

Some projects were developed for web and mobile devices, via Web services and using SignalR library we adopt them under iOS and Android.

In a project where client required high performance I utilize Redis framework to optimize storage and access to sensitive information.

I prefer to work with MS SQL,but als know MySQL and postgre. I have been working with all version starting from 2005 server.

I like to design DB model first and then code it. MS Visio or ErWin are used for designing, for small projects - MS Studio.

I most work with Google API reports - they powerful and easy to use, but in one project, I utilized Crystal Reports to extract data from OLAP storage and display 3rd dimension view.

I have very little experience with DevExpress, but I am an expert in Infragistics and telerik, so maybe I can persuade you to use them.

9. Cover letter example for PHP Software Developer to mimic site

Web, Mobile & Software Dev • Web Development
Dear friend

I like the idea you want to develop and need to notice that developing such site requires a great specialist.

This site does not require only software developer skills, but also system analytic, DB architect and project manager experience.

I am great as dedicated developer and as a team player.

For the last 5 years I successfully launched many projects for automobile, healthcare, insurance, games and banking fields which were integrated with online payment gateways, shipping services, real time order processing and reporting building systems.

I can develop any type of project from scratch, I great with DB modeling, project prototyping, project modeling, project planning and of course - programming.

I like that this project may involve all my skills and experience.

I would recommend to use PHP+MongoDB on LAMP hosting - licenses are free. It also gives you opportunity in future if you decide to extend the project easily scale it using shards technologies. CND can be utilized to improve performance in case if you want to use the same amount of video files available for public users.

The most important question: do you have any specific tech requirements which maybe beyond my expertize? All other  are clear enough to begin.

Anyway, if you hire me, then the first step will be to prepare a functional specification with project details, so we both have clear understanding what should be developed and how it will work and look like.

I would like to develop this project with my creative designer. You may see her works here:, but it if you already have creative it is fine too.

My rate for such type of work is 50$/hr. It cannot be negotiated, because I am confident in my experience and possibility to successfully complete this project.

If you wish, I can provide free a short version of functional specification for this project just in case to prove my expertise.

From March until June, I can spend 20hr/w and then 40hr/w.

Thank you for sharing such interesting project and opportunity to bid on it.

10. Cover letter example for Ruby software developer

Web, Mobile & Software Dev • Web Development
Dear employer

When I read this job I feel very excited to be a part of your team/project and share my great experience in software development.

I worked as singular developer/qa/pm in one person and like a team member with in big projects with 25 developers.

I know thorough how to start, develop and launch web sites, desktop and mobile application.

Everything you mentioned above I have been using more than 5 years:
- I designed and developed DB using MSSQL, Postgre, MySQL, Oracle  more than 100 referenced tables per DB;
- Ruby, PHP and C# - these last used languages in e-Commerce and collaborative web sites and desktop apps;
- I like your choose of Heroku. Also I worked with Google and Microsoft Azure;
- I work on MAC and have experience to setup RedHat and Ubuntu for Apache and TomCat hosting web sites.

At the beginning, I would recommend to create a simple functional spec with quick UX mockups and then design DB model (ErWin is best tool to do this). Then we can make a list of short phases and timelines. Project documentation can be shared via web Git.

As you work remotely, so the best option is to use Google Doc for simple QA tracking and Trello for tasks management. If you have a budget I would recommend to use Fogbugz. I do such way many years with different teams and know how to organize all of this.

I worked remotely as a developer and PM, so know how to do this effectively. As PM I always have updated spec, list of tasks and last QA reports  so when I make a call I know what should be discussed and what is the priority #1.

As you need to launch this project in a short period, I can work more than 40hr/w. I confirm that if you hire me I can launch this project in time and with high quality. I never give up and do the best.

My rate is $65/h, which is more that you expected, but I am looking for long-term cooperation and can decrease it to $45/h for the first phase  so you can evaluate my work and do not lost in money.

I so like this project that can do short UX mockups for free during next 2 days if you contact me.

Waiting hearing from you.

It was nice to apply for this job, sir.

14. Cover letter example for PHP script to simulate a human login

Web, Mobile & Software Dev • Web Development

The solution for your task can be archived by different ways, which depend on the following:
1) if the site you mentioned is yours then I can write PHP script to emulate login and download file. It is easy;

2) if the site is an external site then it is better to write simple script (there are many desktop tools available for windows and mac) to emulate user actions like login and clicks.

For the case #2: you even can put this script into schedule and download the file periodically.

My rate is $21/hr and I can do this task during next 2 days.

I think that option #1 may take 2hr and the option #2 - from 1hr to 6hr (depends on extra time to schedule the process and save/rename files).

I always do the best for my clients; explaining what and how can be done to achieve the expected results with minimum cost and time.   

Please feel free to contact me in case if you have any questions.

Have a nice day!!!

17. Cover letter example for DotNetNuke module required

Web, Mobile & Software Dev • Web Development
Dear customer,

I am glad that there are tasks for those who are specialist in DNN.

Your database specification is almost perfect, but if you wish, I would advise to change migration of some fields to get a quick search of properties. In general DNN works very slowly, if do not take into consideration some DB design tricks.

I do not have questions about the layout, but to finalize estimate it would great to see the source files in which this module will be integrated (if you wish me do it).

My rough estimate for this job is 15hr, which will cost $300. 

If you would like to work with me on hourly basis then please use $20/h rate.

I do not see any problems to accomplish this task during next week, after you provide access to you project. Also I can develop it as a separate module and you will adjust styles your-self.

I am open to discuss any questions, because I am fun of DNN and would like to cooperate on long-term basis.

Thank you for such opportunity, sir!

20. Cover letter example for Fantasy Sports

Web, Mobile & Software Dev • Web Development
Hi, my name is Alex from Armenia.

Last 2 years I have been developing similar system for Baseball fantasy game, which mimics famous FanDuel portal. It was done on PHP+Node.js+MongoDB.

You require developing your system on .net+MSSQL, which is not a problem for me, because I perfectly know PHP and C#. 

Based on my experience I would recommend using MongoDB or CacheDB as the second storage, because MSSQL is good for transaction data, but not for real-time processing which is essential for such kind of applications.

What data service provider are you going to use?  I can recommend some of them, which I used in the previous project, because they provide quite good refined and reliable data.

When you are going to start this project? Do you want to start from scratch or do you already have some code.

I can design and code this project along, but if you already have a team and can easily join it. 

Can we discuss project requirements and payment conditions via skype/by e-mail.

Looking forward to hear from you, sir
