I am developing a solution to deploy open-source hardware in a way that would be similar to APT or Portage in software. As a matter of fact, the idea is to extend something like Portage to make it compatible with hardware deployment in parallel with software. I started this project some time ago and I have an opportunity to recruit someone to help, but I am not sure where to advertise this job. This is a rather focused profile I need, and dedicated forums tend not to approve of job advertisement. So my question is: where could I advertise a job in open source software/hardware?
