If the project is viable and comes to fruition I absolutely expect to pay for this position. I would need somebody with technical knowledge to oversee the project, re numeration would be by negotiation with the right person.
Initial conversations would not be paid as r and d stages of this project are being self funded - it is possible that some retrospective funding could be arranged or a completion bonus to "balance"
My intentions are to create great and groundbreaking art, gather publicity for rep rap/ open source materials and ultimately supply free printers to schools and educational institutions. I hope this piques your interest
