Flight Price Search Algorithm for cheapest flights

by
Looking for: Designer, Developer, Engineer, Marketer
I am looking for software developers for this project, which entails creating an algorithm that crawls the web for the best possible matches for the cheapest flights.

For example:
A flight from Orlando to Dublin is around $800 for a round trip ticket based off of google flights.
But it's only $530 with WOW airlines from boston to dublin and back.
So of course you would need to find a flight from orlando to boston and back, which would cost around $200, so in total, $730 instead of $800 to $1000.

I think that there is a big market out there for people who are willing to take that extra layover for some savings.

The program itself would comprise of searching for the best deals and then combining them together so that the layovers aren't that bad, which would also include settings to configure how much someone is willing to spend and how long they would be ok with spending time at the airport.

I would like the platform to be web based, but the main work would be the algorithm, the website would just be something that we could whip up in a month or so.
