Salesforce is a globally recognized CRM (Customer Relations Management) platform used by many businesses worldwide for better deciphering their customers' needs through a sophisticated suite of cloud-based solutions for sales, marketing, and service. Even though the Salesforce platform offers easy integration for businesses, no two organizations will have the same type of requirements; hence, their Salesforce requirements will also differ.  

In case that happens, the skills of talented Salesforce developers turn out to be the most beneficial. The reason is that these professionals have strong expertise in custom software development and readily provide tailor-made business solutions. A Salesforce developer is a programmer who is proficient in developing applications across many PaaS (Platform-as-a-service) services.  

An accomplished Salesforce developer knows how this cloud-based customer relationship management (CRM) software solution works and skillfully manages and customizes the technical aspects of a company's Salesforce instance. They do this by using three essential technologies:  

  • Visualforce - this markup language is used to create custom pages in Salesforce.  
  • Apex - this object-oriented programming language has Java-like syntax. It is Salesforce’s proprietary language.  
  • Lightning Component Framework - this UI (User Interface) framework helps create dynamic Salesforce web apps for desktop and mobile devices.  

These tools enable the Salesforce Developers to develop custom processes and applications within the CRM, customize page layouts to provide relevant and meaningful user experiences, rectify technical issues, perform third-party integration and more. The everyday tasks of a Salesforce Developer are technically intensive and include work that goes beyond programming. Besides, they should have excellent interpersonal and social skills because their job entails collaborating with their sales colleagues and marketing and customer support teams to deliver appropriate Salesforce solutions for addressing business needs. After creating solutions, they are expected to perform quality assurance and create user documentation, testing, and debugging.

Creating a Salesforce-enabled project requires tremendous efforts, such as creating APIs, automating workflows, integrating 3rd party tools, and producing high-quality software code while ensuring security and performance. Therefore, organizations must recruit skilled Salesforce developers to execute these responsibilities effectively. Hiring a competent developer will help employers leverage the technical expertise and prowess of such experts who know how to do programming and what are the best practices for optimizing cloud CRM. This way, organizations can save time and resources while achieving more efficiency in less time.

Employers want to gain crucial information on their candidates throughout talent selection. The problem, however, is that traditional recruitment methods, such as CVs and unstructured interviews often do not provide an in-depth insight into somebody's actual competencies. Thus, serving as unreliable predictors of job performance. This is where the role of the pre-employment test comes into play. The Salesforce assessment test is a technical assessment to understand candidates’ familiarity with the core concepts, features, and functionalities of Salesforce CRM. The pre-hire test will help tech recruiters and hiring managers evaluate applicants' on-the-job skills before an interview.

Salesforce Online Proctored Exam: Enabling Secure, Scalable and Credible Online Assessments   

The Salesforce online proctored exam is a pre-employment test that candidates take to show their ability to build customized apps based on Salesforce and link them with other systems. The test helps screen out unsuitable applicants and select qualified individuals from a pool of resumes. This process contributes to objective decision-making and reduces the administrative challenge of interviewing an excessive number of candidates.  

Most importantly, these assessments will take place in a secure, controlled environment with anti-cheating features such as online proctoring, limited system access, window violation, etc. The Salesforce developer assessment test is centered on the data-driven approach to make unbiased hiring decisions, find top tech hassle-free, and provide granular insights on every sub-competency. The test result report provides actionable insights into which candidates have the required skills to perform successfully.
