<br>I'm looking for an awesome developer who is good with PCB design, PCB layout, and firmware programming. To be clear, since this stuff matters, this is a paid contract. I'm also open to finding someone with an interest in joining our team long-term, and working for equity, or a combo of cash and equity. On a related note that is not the main thrust of this email: if you or someone you know can code apps (iPhone or Android) and is looking for a project, I am also looking for someone to help on that side of things too.</span><br>
