He has mastery over 12 computer languages. He is versatile not just in programming but various aspects of computer science such as databases (both NoSql and RDBMS), server management, graphics (especially vector graphics), data formats, API design, and use and so on.

More importantly, he would be useful to lay out the problem solving approach, and software architecture that your company would need to adopt.
