We are from Russia. We have an idea for startup. We have money (we are investors).
We dont have a developing team and dont want to create it.
We need to hire a team with strong knowlegde of PayPal and experienced in high-load webapps development.
Unfortunattely our search in Russia did not get the desired results.
The quiestion is: how to find such a team properly in USA or elsewhere in Western world? Is it possible?
Sure it is possible.
There are several ways to find developers:
That all being said, there are many competent developers out there in Europe, US or elsewhere. The biggest problem will be trust. There is no recommendation to find a trustworthy guy. Just... look at what he did and his blog posts. So more you learn about your dev so better.
Anyway I am surprised you couldn't find people in Russia. Usually people in Germany outsource to Russia, not vice versa. You might want to add "outsourcing" to the list of terms for your search maybe you get better results if you would search for classical, russian outsourcing companies.
