great that you are focusing on growth. One of the things I look for in a growth
marketer is if they think strategically rather than pure tactical. They usually
show this by asking questions that are specific to how the business operates and

It totally depends on your business and the skills you already have in-company.
In general, find a swiss army knife instead of a specialist. Someone who thinks
strategically and can work well with people who don't know much about marketing.
