Hello! I need help finding a programmer to make a webapp. I am non technical, but looking for a technical cofounder. Does anyone know where to find people? We are currently a team of 2 people, both non technical.

Hello Enadi! Just my two cents, as an active CTO and a technologist for 20+ years, I highly recommend searching for a technology advisor to join your company before hiring any developers. Depending on whether your product is mostly technical, or only partly technical, I think it's worth taking the time to establish a board of advisors and grant your technology advisor a small fraction of equity to help guide the technology decisions and assisting with hiring/screening for your business. Anything between 0.2% to 2% is typical, depending on the current stage of your business and the advisor's level of involvement. Without a technology advisor, you're likely to have a lot of additional headaches and unnecessary roadblocks in your development of any technology services associated with your business. My company does this same thing with experts in the fields that we aren't already proficient in, and it has worked wonders. Again, just my two cents. Good luck!

Hey, there. I've been a senior developer, and have built & deployed several full-stack applications for clients over the last several years (basically I can do just about anything needed, including leading teams & advising on tech stacks). I'd love to hear more about the app you're trying to build. You can find out more about me at If you have any questions please feel free to DM me.

Hey there! Following the advice given by John, I think it’s important you’re well advised regarding tech to avoid hiring the wrong people or building the wrong product. Here is an article I wrote regarding this topic specially for non-tech founders:
