Some from me -

- Ability / knowledge to figure out where you are, where you can be and what it takes from tech standpoint
- Experience with Small and Large Scale (both)
Knowledge of Mobile App Business. Tech skills relevant to your product roadmap
- Team building and management experience. This involves ability to work with nerds 
- Potential and/or interest to take leadership inside and outside of company
