Good Luck mate with your expansion.

We are presently contracting out development of the sites, with Phase 1 0f released.  We are working on Phase 2 plus the other sites now.  Contracting out is great in the early stages but we need somebody inhouse for everyday troubleshooting, fixing and new features. 

I completely agree about having in-house developers ( that's me ). I'm working on some pretty interesting stuff; I started out with Joomla, and moving towards our own in-house CMS, job ad network, advanced  job search api, and job distribution platforms; so I can control everything - I have a business partner who - takes care of us financially I'm just waiting on him to start preparing to start selling our services - so I can see how he is going to be doing so. 

If I can ask what what all are you trying to do? Can I help in anyway? I can give advice on certain aspects of how to accomplish certain task in Joomla, and API development as my main career has been a LAMP, HTML/CSS and ColdFusion Developer for over 8 years now;
