Required software development freelancer for Moving to AWS - need migration and initial setup job

We're a small design/development agency looking for a server engineer to help us migrate our web properties from LAMP stacks on Linode to a fully-redundant setup on AWS. I am currently our server admin and have made some plans on AWS but could use the help in understanding what our best options might be. Because I have a lot of other stuff on my plate right now, I just don't have the time to research this myself.

There are a few clusters we currently have that will remain as simple LAMP stacks. However, there are a couple clusters we will be migrating to the App/Web/DB server model.

Our team is pretty laid back (deadlines are still important, though) and like to have fun with our work so you need to bring your sense of humor with you. You should also be able to communicate well in English (speaking and writing) and be able to have audio calls via Skype while this project is on-going. Your time-zone isn't that important, everyone on our team works remotely from all over the place. As long as you can be available for real-time messaging (or occasional planned calls) for a few hours during our workday then we can make it work. Being able to have real-time conversations speeds up projects tremendously. Our typical workday is weekdays between 8am-5pm Central Standard Time (or UTC -6)

You need to be able to write clean, ACCESSIBLE, and maintainable code that is well documented. You also need to be able to solve problems and think for yourself, and be willing to spend a little extra time to do the job properly. This isn't a project for temporary hacks or quick fixes. We'll help you however we can and make sure you have everything you need for the work, but we don't have time to hold your hand or micro-manage :) Along those lines, if you see a better way to do something than how we are suggesting, we want you to speak up! We prefer opinionated people!

Bonus points if you are comfortable writing custom migration scripts (otherwise, I'll be the one handling this).

If you apply for the job, let us know if you prefer EC2 or S3 for object storage. Also, send us a link with any portfolio code (i.e. a relevant GIT repo, etc).

If you weren't specifically invited to apply, then start your application by telling me if you prefer tabs or spaces and why. Because 90% of applicants never actually read the job posting, this will tell me if I should read your application.

And glory day, don't just copy/paste a generic application that includes a ton of un-related dev skills. It's so boring, and such a waste of time, and not cool.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask!
