The developer you hire should be able to think beyond coding: Take it in writing, an experienced and successful developer should also have a clear vision of how their creations are going to benefit the end-users. Keep in mind; proficiency in coding is necessary however that’s not always sufficient for making the  developer really suitable.

App-monetization: Yes; this is one of the most important aspect. In fact the developer you select should be able to incorporate appropriate monetization and pricing plans for the applications.

Promotion of the apps: This is a vital aspect. Albeit app-promotion is typically done by specialized online marketers, however the app developer has to take up the charge of making it available on the Play Store. As a developer the professional should have a clear idea about the steps involved and keep a tab on the approval status/download figures of the applications.

Consider the Ownership issues: Right from the beginningyou need to make it clear that  once developed, the app would become the property of your organization. This means the developer you hire would not retain any intellectual rights for the same.
