Job Cover Letter Sample for Experienced PHP developers:

Dear Sir

I am .............. from .........

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.

Thanks and regards
