Where should I look? How should I approach (ie. if they are already employed)?

My advice here is to do your homework and look for people who are somehow interested in area of your product/service. Either they work/ed in similar company, are part of a relevant meetup group or so on. LinkedIn advanced search might help here.

Besides classic job boards, take a look on this specified websites:

Hope this will help you and good luck with your search. If your developer could work remotely, I know really good people in Slovakia. Just give me a call.
