I'm thinking of hiring a developer for my communications agency. I'm looking for someone who can do html and css and all that, of course, so we can develop websites in house.
But I also want him or her to know their way around Twitter, FB, LinkedIn etc. API's, and to develop some custom tools for social media and Google analytics if needed. It would be great if he or she could develop simple apps for Android or iOS too.
What exactly is the skill set I'm looking for? Is this a typical skill set of a developer, or should I forget about finding all of this in one person. As you can tell, I'm still at the start of the recruitment process. Any insights into recruiting developers is welcome.
