Build a very simple web code to run on Linux

I'm looking for a trustworthy and reliable coder to build code on Linux server for a very simple program.

What it does is this:

1. Gets price of product from an API every "S" seconds. Every "S" seconds there is price-get.

2. Every price-get, the program checks the current price-get against the previous X price-get to see if it exceeds "A" percentage in absolute terms. If it exceeds, the program shall send an email to specified email address.

The program can create up to 5 rules following the above formula. i.e. check against previous 5 price-get to see if price exceeds "0.5%" percentage in absolute terms.

3. Settings page shall be able to set send to email address, "S", and up to 5 rules, and on/off.

This shall be setup in a Linux server. API and examples can be given to shortlisted applicants,
