A good working knowledge of at least some of the analytical and visualization tools on the market to help us make informed choices about what to use where

Previous involvement in building streaming applications in Scala (Akka or FS2 preferred)
Expertise using Kafka as the backbone of an event driven system
Familiarity with Kafka Streams or a similar technology
Experience in using third party systems to act as a data/integration hub
