Fixed-price UpWork Contracts

I was recently involved with a startup as CTO, kicking off the technology side of the business. I picked Flutter as the UI technology for the phone app. The challenge was to find devs to work with that relatively new tech. There was lots of competition in the city we’d started in (pre COVID-19) for those who learned Flutter early, but globally there are a lot of people.
