>>what skills I should consider obligatory when looking to hire a web developer?
are you looking to hire a webdeveloper or contact out the work?
... either way, i think you are asking the wrong question, i think you should look to have a very detailed (as detailed as possible) list of requirements for a website, how it should look and how it should function. once you have a very precise schedule of work so to speak, then you can look for someone to do it ... or infact you can ask/pay someone to advise you as to what skills an employee/contractor will need.
... ditto for lots of other skills.
