Are you looking strictly for in-house people or are you open to working with remote staff, at the very least until you find that person inhouse?

We are open to remote staff as long as there is a few hours of overlap with PST timezone.

Hey @hbiz and @aseed912 I sent over an email a few weeks back that might have gotten lost in the fray. If you are still looking for a developer, we’re still keen to chat with you about working together. I’ll reach out again today.
