1) What's the primary pain point that's leading you to bring it all
back in-house? Find someone with the skills that will address that
2) Get the most senior generalist you can find/afford -- someone who
can do it all at some level, including deployment, ops issues, IA,
the whole enchilada.
3) Find someone who, more than anything, loves to write tests :-)
