I work for a company based in San Jose, CA, and we're looking for a web developer/designer with Drupal or Joomla experience who has the ability to work part time (20-30 hours) on site in our San Jose office. We're learning that most developers are freelance and many our out of the state, which has made finding the right person tough.

I'm wondering if anyone here can offer me some advice/tips as far as where to search for developers. We've tried Craigslist, Monster and Dice, with no luck. Is there a more direct venue to advertise or network? I'm also wondering if there is anyway you can pass this posting along to anyone you may know in the Bay Area. Thanks... any help is greatly appreciated!
