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.

Tips for Hiring Apex developers

Finding and hiring an experienced and reliable Salesforce APEX developer can be challenging. They are sought after for their expertise in developing custom applications on the Salesforce platform. They help organizations build custom enterprise solutions tailored to their business needs. They also guide application design and development practices. This allows organizations to get the most out of their Salesforce investment.

But how do you find the right developer for your particular project? In this article, we'll provide insights on Salesforce APEX development and how to hire Salesforce APEX developers, from salary expectations and interview questions to writing a job description.

What Is Salesforce APEX Development?

Salesforce APEX is a proprietary programming language that creates custom solutions on the Salesforce platform. Salesforce built the language to enhance the capabilities of the Salesforce platform and give developers an easy way to create powerful applications. This language enables developers to build applications tightly integrated with Salesforce, add custom business logic, create triggers, schedule jobs, and integrate with third-party systems.

It allows Salesforce customers to tailor applications to their business needs. Examples of projects that these developers can build include creating custom objects and triggers, building reports, dashboards, and workflows, and integrating Salesforce with other third-party applications.

What Does a Salesforce APEX Developer Do?

A Salesforce APEX developer is responsible for developing and maintaining the custom applications on the Salesforce platform. They are experts in writing APEX code, so they can build custom objects, triggers, reports, dashboards, and workflows. They also need to be able to troubleshoot issues during development.

The day-to-day tasks of Salesforce APEX developers vary depending on the project. They aim to design, develop and maintain custom applications using the Salesforce APEX code base. This includes everything from:

  • Writing code
  • Debugging existing applications
  • Integrating third-party services
  • Building custom user interfaces
  • Testing new features and bug fixes
  • Developing and optimizing database queries

They also develop custom applications and modify existing ones to meet business needs. To achieve this, they must be well-versed in the latest Salesforce technologies. They also should have extensive experience with object-oriented programming (OOP) principles. Knowledge of Salesforce's various APIs and services ensures efficient and secure applications.

Salesforce APEX Developer Salary

According to Glassdoor, when hiring mid-level Salesforce APEX developers with four to six years of experience in the US, employers can expect to pay a competitive average annual salary of $94,37. However, salaries may vary based on factors like company size, industry, geographic location, and job responsibilities.

While Salesforce APEX developers in Latin American countries are equally skilled, the lower cost of living means they’re usually paid 30%-50% less than their US counterparts, with salaries varying based on location and experience. Revelo provides a cost-effective solution while offering highly qualified, pre-vetted Latin American developers.

How to Write a Job Description for Salesforce APEX Developers

Creating an accurate job description is essential to attracting high-quality Salesforce APEX developers. The job description should list the required skills and provide an overview of the company's culture and values. It should also include a specific job title, an overview, key responsibilities, and qualifications. 

Other information to add include the following:

  • Key responsibilities: This section should provide specific details about the job and expected projects. Let the candidate know what you’ll need of them, whether they’ll be working independently or managing a team, and any other tasks they’ll be expected to complete.
  • Skills required: While a technical background is essential, looking for non-technical skills is also vital. Non-technical skills include problem-solving, communication, and team-oriented work. Ensure to include any special qualifications or abilities desired.
  • Experience level: When crafting the job description, consider what developer level your team needs. That is a junior, mid-level, or senior developer. The job description should fit the experience required for the project.
  • Company culture: It is crucial to provide a clear overview of the working environment they can expect. This will help to attract the most qualified and motivated applicants for the position that will excel in your company’s unique environment.

Interview Questions for Salesforce APEX Developers

To hire the best candidates, it is important to ask the right questions to assess their skills. Interview questions help to test the candidate's problem-solving skills and communication abilities. They are also key in measuring a potential hire’s knowledge of Salesforce APEX and ability to fit into the team. Here are some interview questions to ask.

How do you handle debugging Salesforce APEX code?

This question helps assess the candidate's ability to troubleshoot and debug issues. It also tests the extent of their knowledge of the Salesforce platform. The candidate's answer should show their understanding of debugging tools. The tools include Salesforce Developer Console and other techniques they use to solve problems. A great answer should also show their understanding of best practices and ability to manage complex tasks.

What is the difference between a trigger and a class in APEX?

When creating database applications, it is important to understand the difference between a trigger and a class in APEX. A trigger is an event or code that runs automatically before or after a data manipulation language (DML) event, such as insert, update, and delete. A class is an Apex program that can store and access data from a database. By asking this question, you can assess a candidate’s understanding of how each works and their differences.

How do you write test classes in APEX?

Test classes in APEX are a key element to ensure the quality of your code, so an Apex developer needs to know how to write them. This question evaluates the candidate's knowledge and understanding of writing test classes within the APEX platform. An answer to this question should include the candidate’s clear understanding of the requirements around creating a valid test class, such as having at least 75% coverage of code and using assertions to verify the output of methods.
