"Terrific partner that has been instrumental in helping us scale from an MVP to series A"
Very well-vetted, high-quality candidates, ensure that I don't waste time interviewing unqualified people. They also make payroll a breeze and allow us to offer competitive benefits packages and provide hardware to our employees. They help find solutions that work for you rather than just making up the numbers and building a funnel.

Revelo manages the entire process for you. They found candidates; responded and adjusted their search based on my feedback; scheduled interviews; etc. After spending an inordinate amount of time trying to find the talent we needed in-house -- and honestly not doing a great job of it -- they got us a developer we're thrilled with.

Tips for Hiring ABAP developers

ABAP (Advanced Business Application Programming) developers are essential for companies working with SAP systems, as they specialize in developing and maintaining custom applications to enhance business processes. These skilled ABAP programmers ensure the seamless integration of new features while optimizing the performance of existing solutions within an organization's SAP landscape. However, hiring top-notch SAP ABAP developers can be challenging due to their niche expertise and high demand.

This article discusses what ABAP development entails, the roles and responsibilities of an ABAP developer, salary expectations for these professionals, ways to craft a compelling job description that attracts top talent, and insightful interview questions to ask. It also highlights how partnering with Revelo can help overcome hiring challenges by connecting you with highly skilled Latin American software developers ready to contribute to your company.

What Is ABAP Development?

ABAP is a high-level programming language created by SAP for developing and customizing applications running on the SAP platform. It's primarily used to build custom solutions that enhance, extend, or adapt standard business processes within an organization's SAP landscape.

Projects requiring SAP ABAP development typically involve creating tailored reports or transactions, designing interactive user interfaces (UIs), integrating third-party systems with existing workflows, and optimizing the performance of critical business operations. By leveraging ABAP in these scenarios, companies can improve data management efficiency while ensuring seamless compatibility with their core ERP system.

What Does an ABAP Developer Do?

An ABAP developer's day-to-day activities revolve around designing, building, and maintaining custom applications that enhance or complement a company's SAP system. They aim to streamline business processes while ensuring seamless integration with existing solutions. 

Some of their typical tasks include the following:

  • Analyzing user requirements and translating them into technical specifications
  • Developing custom reports, transactions, or interfaces using ABAP language
  • Debugging and troubleshooting issues within the SAP system to improve performance
  • Creating documentation for developed solutions to support end-users and future development efforts 
  • Collaborating with functional consultants or other developers on large-scale projects 
  • Keeping up with the latest advancements in the SAP technology stack

ABAP Developer Salary

A mid-level ABAP developer with four to six years of experience in the U.S. can expect an average annual salary of around $122,490. This figure is based on data gathered from Glassdoor and may vary depending on factors such as location, industry, and company size.

Although Latin American ABAP developers possess comparable skills, their lower cost of living results in salaries averaging 30% to 50% less than their U.S. counterparts. Revelo offers access to many pre-vetted, highly skilled Latin American developers, providing a cost-effective solution without compromising on quality.

How to Write a Job Description for ABAP Developers

When crafting a job description for ABAP developers, clearly outline the technical expertise required and emphasize any complementary skills you want, such as experience with specific SAP modules or knowledge of other programming languages. To attract top talent, highlight your company's unique selling points and mention growth opportunities.

Remember that the required experience level should align with a project's complexity and a role's responsibilities. For simpler tasks or support roles, consider hiring junior-level developers. Mid-level professionals, on the other hand, are ideal when projects require more advanced customization. Senior developers can take on complex projects involving system architecture design or team leadership roles. Tailor your job description accordingly to ensure it appeals to candidates suited to your needs.

To create a well-rounded job description, cover all the essential aspects that showcase your expectations and what you offer as an employer. Crucial sections to include in your description include the following:

  • Required experience and qualifications: Specify any mandatory qualifications or years of experience needed for the position. For example, mention if candidates must have previously worked with specific SAP modules or possess certain certifications.

  • Desired skills and traits: Highlight additional skills that would benefit this role, such as familiarity with other programming languages or strong communication abilities. Soft skills can play an important part in team dynamics.

  • Job responsibilities: Be thorough yet concise when listing tasks the developer will handle; examples could include creating custom transactions, optimizing system performance, or collaborating on large-scale projects. This clarity helps candidates gauge their fit for the role.

  • Benefits: A comprehensive benefits package can attract top talent, so consider mentioning perks like flexible hours, remote work options, and health insurance.

  • Company information: Share details about your organization's values and culture to resonate emotionally with potential hires who share similar principles. A good cultural fit leads to increased job satisfaction and higher retention rates.

Interview Questions for ABAP Developers

When interviewing potential ABAP developers, evaluating their technical knowledge, problem-solving skills, and collaboration capabilities is essential in learning about their experience in SAP ABAP. In addition to standard behavioral questions and coding challenges that assess fundamental programming abilities, focus on questions related to SAP systems and ABAP programming and development. This ensures you're selecting candidates who can excel when creating custom solutions tailored to your organization's needs while contributing positively to the work environment. Below are some sample questions to get you started.

Can you explain the main features of ABAP and its use in SAP systems?

Assess a candidate's understanding of ABAP as a programming language and its role within an organization's SAP landscape. Expect to hear about key features like strong database management integration, object-oriented programming support, or the ability to create custom reports and transactions tailored for specific business processes.

How do you approach performance optimization in an existing ABAP application?

Inquire about performance optimization to gauge the developer's problem-solving skills and their experience optimizing system efficiency. Look for answers that mention analyzing runtime data, identifying bottlenecks using tools like SQL Trace or Runtime Analysis Tool (SAT), implementing proper indexing strategies, or employing modularization techniques.

Describe your experience working on cross-functional teams involving functional consultants or other developers.

Collaboration is crucial when developing custom solutions within complex SAP environments. This question shows how well candidates can work alongside colleagues from different backgrounds. You'll want them to share examples of times they've effectively communicated technical concepts with non-technical team members—ensuring smooth project execution—or instances where they contributed valuable insights during collaborative decision-making processes.
