Technical skills are definitely no.1 on the list but I think communication and attitude are no. 2.

An a**hole genius will wear your whole team down while a mediocre team player can be taught some additional skills and will eventually be an asset to the team.
I've been in a team with one such a**hole (although he was far from a genius, actually one of the worst programmers I've ever seen), but the whole project suffered from his personality and two people, me included, quit the company because of him (that was a 1/3th of the team!).
