I have a sort of "specific" dilemma.
I am a founder of start-up (business networking platform) which target market is East Asia and Japan being one of the most important markets. Our beta is ready to launch, however my lead programmer decided he would like to concentrate fully on his own projects in Europe.
Therefore I am looking for a new co-founder with programming and web design background (Java, MYSQL, PHP, HTML, XHTML ... ) to take over and develop our business further and work on future add-ons for the website.
Since I would like to find bilingual English-Japanese programmer (due to reasons stated above), you can imagine I am running out of places to look. I tried some "directly pitching" some guys on social-media, but most of them didn't reply (maybe due to language barrier) or said they really like mu project are fully committed to their own businesses and are not able to take additional work.
Any ideas where to look or how to find a new Japanese speaking technical co-founder?
Thank you all, your help is much appreciated.
