My experience gives you more peace of mind: it's me who will analyse edge cases, security implications, performance issues and who will suggest improvements.
Communication: we can use Pivotal Tracker, Trello, Evernote, Google Docs, Dropbox, VSee, Skype, plain old email and anything else you find beneficial for productivity. I communicate clearly and precisely.
To you as the employer introversion means: careful listening when you present your ideas, no talks at work, and no time wasted for parties.
My age frees me from kids who would ruin my nights or distract me at any time.
Privately, I consider myself a happy person and a lucky guy.
