Hiring a database manager, what skills are needed?



We're hiring a new database manager who will need to work with Caspio. What skills should we list as required? SQL, Javascript, HTML, etc?

We are also looking for someone who knows how to work with the API aspect of Caspio, something that none of us are familiar with. What skills should we be looking for?

Thanks for all your help.

You will definitely want someone that is proficient in JavaScript. That is a BIG one with Caspio. There are a lot of things that Caspio is missing in their 'standard' features, and they all seem to be do-able in JS. 

HTML and CSS is pretty much a given. If they are good at JS, they'll know how to mess with these. 

Python might be a nice asset for APIs, but again, someone good can do it with JS.

Knowledge of some SQL will definitely help with expressions and queries for Calculated Values and Formulas, etc. But that stuff is easier and Live Chat can help with this a lot more than they can with JS.

TLDR; You won't need as much of a 'Database Manager', but more of a 'JavaScript Expert'.

A hard part is going to be getting an experienced developer wanting to actually work with Caspio. It is a great platform for people who are starting out and don't know much about programming, but for an expert, it could really be troublesome getting them onboard to work with something like this.
