Description
A software developer with at least 2 years' experience is needed to join an app development project. The app provides an outfit curation service for men, and is in the very early stages of development. The team are looking for another developer to come on board to speed the project up, bring new ideas to the table, and help create the initial prototype.

The person should not expect pay. This isn't a job, it's a project. If the work develops successfully, and when taken to pitch, the app receives investment, full-or-part-time paid roles may open up. The main thing is that the dev team are seeking someone who is looking to improve their skills outside of their day job and potentially develop a working product that has a commercial future.

Currently, stories are being set by the project leader for other members of the team to work through. There are 3 people involved in the project at this stage, all of whom are based in London.

@hankitten, I have spent hours trawling the internet and the answer I have found is that it is not possible to find a pro-bono developer advertising themselves as available in London or otherwise.

Instead, you need to advertise yourselves as looking for the skill of a developer; places I've seen advertisements like this are: indeed.com, gumtree.com & volunteermatch.com.

The first post on the Quora thread attached talks you through the steps involved in recruiting a developer into a startup business such as yours; from establishing what you have to offer recruits, networking in the right circles and actually learning some coding yourself.

Also, unfortunately for you, it seems that most pro-bono developers are geared towards working for non-profit organisations/charities which makes finding a pro-bono developer for a startup even more competitive again.

I hope this is of some help to you!
