"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.

"Took all the hassle out of finding great talent"
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.

"Helped us find engineers quickly - great communication with our team"
The speed at which they were able to source engineers. We were able to find fullstack engineers that will stay with our company just like regular full-time employees. They come at a competitive price-point compared to other agencies.

Tips for Hiring Microsoft developers

Microsoft began in 1975 in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Since then, it has become a computer technology giant and the largest software vendor. It has produced leading software products, such as the Windows operating system (OS), Microsoft Office suite, and Internet Explorer, since supplanted by Microsoft Edge.

Given this marketplace dominance, hiring a Microsoft developer can be a huge asset to any technology-based company. Developers in Microsoft are often assigned to write instructional code for existing computer programs and to develop new software.

However, the competition for developers skilled in Microsoft makes it challenging to find and hire a good Microsoft developer. Another factor is that these specialists tend to earn hefty salaries.

This article will explore what Microsoft development is, how to find the best talent through attractive job postings and interview questions, and how Revelo’s talent marketplace can help you hire Microsoft developers.

What Is Microsoft Development?

Microsoft development involves working within the Microsoft environment to create web and mobile applications, including artificial intelligence (AI) services, data and analytics, DevOps, collaborative applications, and more. Due to the popularity of Microsoft, the community is extensive and continuously growing, offering unique insights and documentation from technical specialists. These developers don't have to worry about facing challenges alone because there will always be an expert in the community able to help.

Microsoft offers several products and tools that help its developers to create responsive apps and web services, including Windows OS, Microsoft Azure, Dynamics 365, Visual Studio, Microsoft 365, Microsoft Teams, and Power Platform. Each tool has powerful features that allow users to turn their ideas into practical solutions. For example, Microsoft Azure is a cloud-based platform that lets people upload, access, share, and manage the development of services and applications through global data centers.

Microsoft development is perfect for building Microsoft-related applications, including ones exclusive to Windows OS.

What Does a Microsoft Developer Do?

Microsoft developers have earned a certificate from a Microsoft program or course. Though their day-to-day operations can vary, there are a few responsibilities shared among them, including:

  • Collaborating with teams to deliver software and products that follow best practices on a deadline
  • Using engineering principles to solve problems and create practical solutions
  • Staying up to date with new and relevant technology trends, concepts, tools, and processes
  • Using Microsoft tools and services to plan and build web and mobile applications

Microsoft Developer Salary

Salaries vary depending on the company, project, location, and the developer's background. According to Glassdoor, mid-level Microsoft developers with four to six years of experience living in the U.S. earn an average of $142,597 annually.

While Microsoft developers in Latin American countries are equally skilled, the lower cost of living means they usually earn 30% to 50% less than their U.S. 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 Microsoft Developers

Crafting a great job description helps attract the best Microsoft developers. Job descriptions should be thorough and well-detailed, giving no room for confusion. Consider what seniority level your project and company require and tailor your description accordingly. For example, senior-level developers will be a better asset for more complex projects and team leadership roles.  

Offer basic information, such as the job title and working hours, then go into more detail in the following sections:

  • Required qualifications/experience/education: A Microsoft developer should have a bachelor's degree in computer science, computer engineering, or a related field, as well as certificates from Microsoft programs.
  • Desired skills and traits: Microsoft developers should be well-versed in JavaScript and C#, be knowledgeable in Microsoft Cloud and Office suite, and have a basic understanding of HTML, ASP.NET, and SQL databases. They should also demonstrate excellent verbal and written communication, problem-solving, and critical-thinking skills.
  • Job responsibilities: These include using information technology tools and programming languages to build responsive web and mobile apps and troubleshooting issues in new and existing programs.
  • Benefits: Unless you're hiring a part-time or freelance employee, benefits are vital to remaining compliant and can help attract top talent. Examples include pension plans, flexible working hours, and sick days.

Interview Questions for Microsoft Developers

Asking the right interview questions helps to assess candidates’ knowledge and skills, allowing you to find the best talent for your project. What questions you ask should depend on the level of experience you need. However, there are a few basic interview questions that any Microsoft developer should be able to answer.

What is your favorite Microsoft product or service, and why?

This is a softball question to learn about a candidate's preferences in Microsoft. It can also assess a candidate's ability to work within the Microsoft products and services that your company uses.

What is a risk you took at work, and what were the consequences?

Ask this question to test a candidate's ability to lead and take charge. Whether the consequence was good or bad, you'll be looking to hear why your candidate chose to take this risk rather than focusing on the outcome. Candidates who cannot give an example of a risk they took may not have leadership skills or be able to think on their feet in the workplace.

How would you design a notification system for a Microsoft product?

Since your candidate will likely be designing new products and services within the Microsoft environment, testing their ability to do just that is critical. Designing a notification system should be a cakewalk for most developers, and they should be able to describe how it would be done easily. They should also be able to give an example with a test code.
