How to Hire the right Salesforce Developer

Working with a Salesforce developer

The Best Salesforce Developers are specialized

Given the complexity of the Salesforce platform, the best way to hire dedicated Salesforce Developers is to identify individuals that are specialized in a particular area of the platform.

Here are a few areas you can narrow the search criteria and find the best Salesforce Developer for your unique needs.

Hire Salesforce Lightning Developers

Lightning Web Components (LWC) were initially released in 2018 and effectively replace Aura Components (which took over for Visualforce).
Companies now have the ability to take control over the user interface (UI) and customize how the page looks for both internal and external users thanks to LWC. This is a very different skill set from a core Apex Developer, so you want to find individuals that have focused in this area specifically

Salesforce Community Cloud Developers

Communities (now called Experience Cloud) is a Salesforce platform that allows companies to build experiences for external users. This is done with a separate license than what is used by  internal users and the process for deploying Community Cloud is different.
It requires specific knowledge of the Community Cloud platform architecture and features. Additionally, you will need a Lightning Developer to design the custom interface, which is a primary reason to leverage Community Cloud.

Hire Salesforce API Developers

While there is a lot of simple integrations a Salesforce Administrator can setup in your org, particularly for products listed on the AppExchange, when it comes to complex data flow, trigger-based automation between systems, and enterprise application environment with specific security requirements, you will want to build custom integrations.
This is often achieved by using the Salesforce API or tools like MuleSoft (Integration Cloud), which require experience that is different from your standard Apex Developer.

AppExchange Developers

The Salesforce platform allows companies to build custom Salesforce applications on top of their core infrastructure - in fact, some of the biggest SaaS companies are built entirely on top of Salesforce.
When a custom app is built on Salesforce, it is done so by building a 'managed package'. Again, this is a very different process from doing custom Apex development on a single instance of Salesforce, so you need to hire a Salesforce AppExchange Developer with experience deploying in this environment.

CPQ Salesforce Developer

Salesforce CPQ is a core element to Revenue Cloud but used to be a standalone company, SteelBrick, that was acquired by Salesforce.
While SteelBrick was a managed package (natively built on top of the Salesforce platform), it has a set of features that are distinct from the core Sales Cloud or Service Cloud products and requires highly specialize knowledge in order to properly setup.

CPQ Cloud is a Salesforce tool that is highly dependent on an established business processes within Sales and Finance, engaging a specialized Salesforce CPQ Developer, Administrator, or Architect is critical to success with this tool.

Salesforce Lightning vs Visualforce

The old way of doing front-end Salesforce Development was to use Visualforce pages. Until the release of Aura Components and Lightning Web Components, companies weren't able to customize the user-interface as much.

LWC is a modern web development framework built using HTML and JavaScript, which are the tools used to design the look and feel of virtually every website on the internet.
Any company that wants to build a more user-friendly instance of Salesforce should be using LWC and hiring a dedicated Salesforce Lightning Developer for the build.

Director, Rev Ops
Series B Startup
We were using Sales Cloud and Hubspot but needed a Consultant to deploy & setup Pardot. FoundHQ rates just made more sense than a Partner.
Director, Demand Gen
Series C Startup
Deployed Pardot, integrated to Sales Cloud but had a bunch of automation & nurturing flows we wanted to build out, so we found a technical Pardot Consultant.
CEO
Consulting Partner
We are a 5-person consultancy and mostly do Sales Cloud implementations but needed a go-to Pardot Consultant as those projects came our way.
VP, Marketing
Series B Startup
I joined just after we closed our Series B with no internal Salesforce team - needed an Admin and Pardot Specialist just to help get things in order quickly.

Company FAQ

What makes FoundHQ different?

We have a singular focus - curating a network of world class Salesforce Freelancers. We are not a project-based Consulting Partner nor are we a Traditional Staffing Firm blindly sending resumes through a database. We are in the business of identifying talent and empowering select, dedicated Freelancers to build the career they've always envisioned.

We deliver flexibility. Our customers receive the benefits of engaging highly motivated, satisfied Freelancers without the additional costs associated with traditional services-based companies. Our customers build relationships directly with Freelancers and retain them for project needs well into the future.

Where does FoundHQ identify your Freelancers?

The largest percentage of our Freelancer network (85%) comes from Salesforce Consultants looking to depart the rigorous lifestyle of working for a major Salesforce Consulting Partner.

We spend time proactively building relationships with these Consultants and when the timing is right, we staff them on a project that launches their career as a Freelancer.

Our mission truly is to empower these individuals to move forward.
We not only offer more flexibility in their lifestyle but also the ability for Consultants to select their own projects. This leads to our Freelancers working for companies and people they believe in and a closer personal interest in their work than traditional employment offered.

What is the process of working with FoundHQ?

We request an upfront call with all Freelancers and Customers prior to providing access to the site. Our priority is quality control over growth and this is our way to ensure it.
We will discuss your Salesforce project and resource needs. You then create a profile (it takes 5 minutes or we can do it for you). At that point, you can browse all Salesforce Freelancers on our platform or we can send you select profiles to review.
We help coordinate the interview process start to finish. You select a Freelancer to hire. We sign a simple, flexible work schedule detailing the agreed upon hourly rate (the rest is open-ended and you can cancel at any time).

We on-board the Freelancer, who works directly with your team throughout the engagement, submitting weekly timesheets for approval, and FoundHQ invoices bi-weekly for approved hours worked.

Can I hire part-time and full-time Freelancers?

Yes. We have small customers that use Salesforce Developers & Administrators for as little as 5-10 hours per week and customers hiring full-time (40 hour per week), dedicated Freelancers for 6+ months.

Can you staff an entire project team?

Yes. Our customers include both Salesforce Customers and Consulting Partners.
Some use the platform to identify individual Freelancers and others are looking to build a multi-disciplinary project team for enterprise projects. We can help to build a team with the necessary skill sets and experience having worked together in the past.

Do you place full-time employees as well as Freelancers?

Sort of. It's not our core focus (yet) but we have begun developing a network of Salesforce Professionals only looking to join a team full-time. Fill out the form below with a bit of information on the type of position & location, so we can see if our current network will support the search. If so, we operate on a flat 12.5% placement fee.

Do you have sample profiles I can see before signing up?

We can send fully anonymized profiles for any Freelancer featured on our platform, which will include location, hourly rate, years of experience, Salesforce platform experience, Certifications, and project/work history.

Fill out the form below with some details about the skill sets you'd like to see.

What is the cost?

The platform is free to access forever.

Freelancer's profiles will all detail an hourly bill rate - this is the all inclusive cost to the customer. These Freelancers will be engaged subcontractors of FoundHQ and the hourly rate includes the Freelancers pay rate + our margin.
