    I suspect that you would be better off saying that the salary is "negotiable" with those possible side benefits, because after the job description that you gave, I find it hard to imagine that a serious candidate would be willing to work as a volunteer with only the potential of pay for what appears to be a commercial venture.

    Thats not a bad idea, however I do not want to miss-lead people. The project will most likely last 8-12 weeks, and then require periodic updates. I also made the post as profesional / commercial sounding as possible to reflect IGL as a business.

    We are trying to get majority of positions filled with volunteers. We do have financing, however the budget is stretched. Programmers will be among the first on payroll when the company begins generating revenue.

    Having ~5 programmers should also lesson the workload. The job could almost definitely be completed by 1 or 2 experienced programmers.
