"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.

Tips for Hiring SQL Server developers

Structured Query Language (SQL)'s ongoing importance in database creation and management keeps the demand for Microsoft (MS) SQL server developers high. As businesses increasingly rely on data-driven strategies and digitalization of their data, the volume of data they accumulate grows substantially. SQL plays a vital role in effectively managing and extracting insights from this data. 

SQL developers are responsible for database management, including crafting complex queries, designing and implementing database structures, and resolving database development-related challenges. However, companies often encounter difficulties when hiring competent SQL server database developers. The demand for great developers is high, while the availability of candidates experienced in SQL development services can be limited. 

This article will present an overview of MS SQL server development, the earning potential of SQL server developers, how to create job descriptions to attract top talent, and how Revelo can make hiring remote SQL server developers faster and easier.

What Is SQL Server Development?

Microsoft SQL server development refers to database design, creation, and management so users can securely access their information. Projects needing SQL server development include library management systems, inventory control, payroll management, cooking recipe portals, hospital management systems, customer order management, and bank account management. 

What Does an SQL Server Developer Do?

SQL developers use SQL to manipulate database tables using create, read, update, and delete (CRUD) commands. Their day-to-day responsibilities typically include the following:

  • Optimizing SQL database performance
  • Developing complex functions and procedures
  • Analyzing queries
  • Implementing security measures
  • Testing databases and troubleshooting issues
  • Managing server memory
  • Performing regular server backups

SQL Server Developer Salary

According to Glassdoor, the approximate annual salary for a mid-level SQL server developer in the U.S. with four to six years of experience is $97,294. However, your cost per hire may vary depending on your company, the industry you’re in, and your location. 

Generally, while software 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. Revelo can connect you with some of these highly qualified, pre-vetted Latin American developers, offering a cost-effective solution without compromising quality.

How to Write a Job Description for SQL Server Developers

Writing a compelling job description is essential to attracting top-tier talent. Consider including complementary skills you're looking for in a SQL server developer, such as familiarity with Linux, Apache, and PHP or other popular languages like C++, Ruby, or Java. If an SQL server developer knows how to build apps and websites, they may better understand what programmers and users want from their databases. 

Junior SQL developers perform basic coding and testing, provide reports, conduct research, and analyze SQL queries. Senior SQL server developers, meanwhile, should have over six years of extensive experience in database management, deep SQL knowledge, and the ability to manage a team of MS SQL developers and programmers. 

In addition to basic job info, like salary and location, your job description should include the following sections:

  • Required qualifications and experience: This may include a deep understanding of online analytical processing (OLAP) and extract, transform, load (ETL) frameworks; familiarity with the types of databases your company uses, such as Oracle, Microsoft, MySQL, PostgreSQL, or MongoDB; and strong skills in code commenting, documentation, and end-user training.
  • Desired skills and traits: These may include excellent critical and logical thinking, the ability to work well on teams, clear written and verbal communication, and openness to constructive feedback.
  • Job responsibilities: Responsibilities may include defining database structures, writing and maintaining SQL queries, optimizing database performance, maintaining data security, designing and building tables and views, testing, and debugging.
  • Company information: Tell the applicant about your company’s mission, values, culture, and history. This gives them a feel for what it’s like to work for your company and helps them gauge whether it’s a good fit.
  • Benefits: This section may include paid time off, health insurance, or 401(k) matching. A comprehensive benefits package can set your company apart and attract higher-quality candidates.

Interview Questions for SQL Server Developers

Interview questions are crucial for evaluating candidates' technical, problem-solving, and communication skills before you make a job offer. Here are a few example interview questions to consider when hiring SQL server developers. Visit our comprehensive SQL server developer interview question guide for additional questions targeting varying experience levels.

What makes SQL different from other languages?

You may want to pose this question to an SQL developer because it helps assess the candidate's broad understanding of SQL. A sample answer could look like this: 

"SQL is a widely used database language for storing, retrieving, and analyzing data. It sets itself apart from other database languages because it's a declarative language, enabling users to specify the data they want to pull without specifying the exact retrieval methods."

What is database normalization, and what are the three common forms of it?

Database normalization makes data easier for users to access, so finding out how familiar a candidate is with it is crucial. A good answer might sound like this: 

"Developers use SQL normalization to reduce duplicate data, minimize issues from modifying data, and simplify queries. Developers organize the data into tables and columns, with each table devoted to a single topic or purpose. For example, you could make a table showing all of a company's customer service representatives. Three common forms include the first normal form (1NF), second normal form (2NF), and third normal form (3NF)." 

What are some of the challenges involved in working with SQL?

By learning what challenges an SQL developer faces when working with the language, you can gauge their level of expertise. An answer could sound like this: 

"Some of the hurdles I face while working with SQL include ensuring the efficiency of the code and managing dynamic or incomplete data. Additionally, it can be challenging to handle large datasets and determine the most efficient approach to manipulating the data."
