Posted 5 months ago

Are you a Sveltekit expert with OpenAI API experience? We’re looking for someone with a special mix of great technical chops and a top-notch design sense to help us build our AI-powered podcast planner.

  • If you can get your hards dirty in the code, and also put together a brilliant looking, modern layout, then this is for you.
  • Closing date: As soon as we find the right person! So, apply quick.

We’re looking for a developer to work with us on our Podcast Planning assistant web app. We have build an initial prototype within our team, and we now need someone to take it on as an ongoing project, improve it and work with us to develop it over time.

This would initially be a set term project, as defined below, but we have many ideas to improve this app in future and the ideal candidate will be interested in taking on that work once the initial rebuild is complete.


The primary goal is to upgrade the existing codebase to meet professional standards, enhance robustness, and prepare the groundwork for the addition of new features.

Scope of Work

  1. Codebase Audit
    • Perform a thorough review of the current codebase.
    • Identify areas for improvement and standardization.
    • Provide recommendations for enhancements and code cleanup.
  2. Routing Implementation
    • Introduce routing to the application to enable navigation between different stages of the plan.
    • Simplify the user flow, allowing direct access to specific sections of the application.
  3. Local Storage and Data Retrieval
    • Implement local storage so users can save and revisit their plans.
    • Ensure that the application can save progress and allow users to resume where they left off.
  4. Error Handling and Retries
    • Develop a robust error-handling system that prompts users with the option to retry if an error occurs.
    • Integrate Tailwind UI modals for user-friendly error messages and retry prompts.
  5. Response Streaming Fix
    • Diagnose and resolve the issues with response streaming on Vercel.
    • Refactor the application to use Svelte server files for edge functions, ensuring compatibility with Vercel’s infrastructure.
  6. Code Duplication and Organization
    • Eliminate redundant code and ensure the codebase is well-organized.
    • Refactor duplicated code into reusable components or modules.
  7. PDF Output Enhancement
    • Improve the formatting of the PDF outputs to ensure content is not cut off.
    • Consider involving a designer for aesthetic improvements and customization options.
  8. Explore how we can Email Results
    • Send a copy of the plan via email
    • If not a huge job, implement this


  • A refactored codebase that adheres to standard coding practices.
  • Implementation of routing and local storage features.
  • An improved error handling mechanism with user retry capabilities.
  • A fixed response streaming function for compatibility with Vercel’s platform.
  • A clean code structure with minimal duplication.
  • Enhanced PDF formatting for better presentation of user plans.
  • Proposal on a system for delivering the finished plan via email


  • Familiarity with the current technical stack: Svelte, OpenAI’s GPT-3/GPT-4, Langchain, Vite, Tailwind CSS.
  • Experience with local storage mechanisms and progressive web app features.
  • Ability to implement user-friendly error handling and UI components.
  • Proficiency in server-side rendering and edge functions, specifically with Vercel.
  • Design sensibilities for improving PDF aesthetics, with potential designer collaboration.

By focusing on these key areas, the project aims to transform the Alitu Podcast Planner into a more reliable, user-friendly, and scalable tool ready for future expansion.
