One of these products is a legacy php application that will need to be maintained for approximately 1.5 years before the parent company is able to sunset it. We’re looking for someone who can maintain the application during that period of time.

Ideally in addition to being able to commit to a long term maintenance contract it’d be great if you could be present for 20h/week for the first 8 weeks of the contract to come up to speed on the application and creating some documentation around what’s there.
