We had an outside consultant of one build and maintain our website, The site is written in cold fusion and has an OSC back end. The problem now is that the site has become too much for him to support and i am looking to bring someone "in house".

where do i look and what should i look for?

any info would be appreciated.

No idea about OSC, but like any programmers you should ask to see his/her portfolio (i.e., other sites developed). Of course, you have to take the person's word about the exact level of development he/she was involved in (unless you call the owner for verification).

What version of CF are you running? The person should have experience with that version.

Also- ask your current programmer if knows of anyone to recommend. Or ask him/her to post a job opening message on any messages boards/communities he/she frequents in relation to CF/web/programming.

Also, it would be good if you could get some input from your current programmer on any resumes that come in.

we are using a coldfusion front end with open source code back end, creloaded i believe is what we use.

problem with incorporating the current programmer, is that we do not want him to know. he is not a current employee, just a consultant.

>> skills needed

If you're simply looking for someone to maintain the site (add, edit, delete products, etc) then you shouldn't need any special skills outside of basic HTML and image editing. If you need someone to do code work then you'll need someone with experience in ColdFusion, PHP, MySQL and likely Javascript.
