If I want to put a team together that will bring all of the RoR development that had been outsourced, who do I hire first? RoR Platform Back-end oriented guru?

We prefer to start with the front-end person, in order to get clarity and detail on what's to be built. That's not so much because the order is so important, but rather that interaction design inherently involves multiple show-and-tell cycles. Get that started first, and let it lead the platform / business-rules work.
