Open source Odoo is better in the hands of a professional developer. The official and obvious place to look is https://www.odoo.com/partners. What about companies who develop internally? How do you hire or train up an Odoo developer?

You can look for a seasoned ERP type. This person would know the concepts and terms but probably doesn't know Python well or Odoo concepts. He/she must break the old learning of SAP, Microsoft, Epicor or whatever system fills their brain before getting into Odoo. You'll hear how some things in Odoo don't make sense and should be done differently.

Or, you can look for a strong developer type, preferably a fervent Python developer. You'll have to train up on manufacturing and ERP concepts.

We're hiring a developer specifically for Odoo. Which is better? We're facing this question now. Share your experiences and thoughts.

Evaluating that at the moment as well and our decision is gone to have an (expensive!) local Odoo-Partner for supporting us in the general system architecture and with special requests (e.g. country accounting) and to work additional with experienced freelancers (e.g. India or Russia) for developments.
The ERP-Know-How comes by ourself.
