Hello!

Has long nurtured the idea of a startup, and now everything is at the stage of investments. The total investment of 30 000$. Required technical job and start a round of sowing.
The service is fully mobile, the web version will be launched only in the last turn. Myself am a web designer and designer UI/UX.

Faced with the following questions:
1) How to write a technical specification?
2) How to find a programmer for backend development?
3) At what stage to hire an iOS developer?

All imho:

1) Technical specification startup should describe the functionality in detail to detail the implicit moments.
Write the standard on 40+ sheets - a sure road to nowhere.
Hire writing TK categorically I do not advise anyone - it should make You, as a carrier of ideas.
If the design project You are responsible, in principle, ready design + frontend scripts + implicit backend scripts this is a normal TK.

* frontend scripts - a set of application screens with arrows "what happens if you click here"

** backend scripts - all logic that is not obvious from the design.
Vyrozhdenie examples:
"While registering, the user enters the email field and password, they are saved in the database" - do not need a script, that's obvious from the design.
"After registration, user receives a letter, here is a link to the layout" - the script

*** It is strange to take the investment without having TK and respectively evaluate the development.
The experience of 30k$ is the MVP rather than a full product.

2) hantim.ru , hh.ru proven outsourcers, etc.

3) the Correct order is: TK > Design > Design Backend > Backend Development > Mobile Development.
* If the deadline is before the development of the backend for the day to gather Moki and develop them.
** If the backend there are things not tied to the design - backend development may start in parallel with design

4) In the General case, the answer to the question is to hire a competent person to steer the development process, but then You will not fit in the budget. Books on management of the sea, read )

Without experience it is useless even to try to understand what it means. - cletus.McLaughlin commented on July 8th 19 at 15:56

Where to start developing a startup?

With confirmation that the service anyone needed and that users would be willing to pay for it. Without this, everything else can be useless.
There are ready-made to major customers, if this is a confirmation, and then found an investor. Thank you. - cletus.McLaughlin commented on July 8th 19 at 15:58
in this case, I wish you success! - dashawn.Rice76 commented on July 8th 19 at 16:01
: confirmation is the advance payment and the money in the account. Everything else is just words. - tyrel_Kirlin commented on July 8th 19 at 16:04
: we are going to analyze my situation or to find answers to questions? Money in the account, but you have all the points as carefully studied. - joanne.Cart commented on July 8th 19 at 16:07

All these points are really important, but it is only ideological and technical side of the issue.
To begin with, to look at how cost management and develop startups. It is advisable to listen to a pitch session - very helpful. Been recently held Startup Village in 2016. Really a lot interesting. And by the way, some already running startups say that are not correctly assessed the need in your product and after market research have changed their designs and are now asking for new money from investors.
In other words, it is important to understand your consumer and your business in General. The issues of monetization is also not in last place. And the four points, I am sure you will be fine.

How to write a technical specification?

Match as best they can, and if you don't, it is best to a minimum and coordinate all developer, good technical reference is the part of the developer's work, so it will be easier, you can precisely announce the amount, and it will be less but bad is part of the job "with a minus sign".

2) How to find a programmer for backend development?

Freelancing.

At what stage to hire an iOS developer?

Immediately, and for Android too.

How best to establish this process for best performance measured in quality and time?

For the best performance you have even the entire amount of the startup is not enough, so narrow.

1 describe what you know and then ask the programmer if he knows he is reading he need to create
2 as well as any other programmer on the job sites
3 well, you must be a launch plan and launch date of IOS applications
4 agayl scrum in your case is probably best
5. To learn how to put punctuation in sentences :) - cletus.McLaughlin commented on July 8th 19 at 16:04

1) How to write a technical specification?

Simple human language without abstruse language.
But consider all the nuances.
That will not be approved immediately - could be interpreted as anything. Or require additional money. No self-evident or "everyone is doing it, it ochevidno", can not be.

2) How to find a programmer for backend development?

As usual:

Friends, the exchange freelancers, firms gigantomastia/rekrutskie.

3) At what stage to hire an iOS developer?


When everything is ready, so he could get to work yesterday though.

4) How best to establish this process for best performance measured in quality and time?


No way.
This is not even all pros can do.
So you - in any way.

I recommend to watch the results at least 2-3 times a week.
