How our Salesforce developer interview questions work

DevSkiller Salesforce developer interview questions implement an advanced testing method known as RealLifeTestingTM. This one-of-a-kind type of testing involves providing candidates with a simulated version of reality and then setting them challenges to deal with based on that simulation.

What to look for in Salesforce developers

The primary aim of Salesforce is to bring customers and companies together by providing businesses with a Customer Relationship Management (CRM) tool. The purpose is to make it easier for companies to manage their interactions with customers, by merging their interaction with customers across various departments and therefore improving customer relations.

Salesforce is very competitive on the world market and as such Salesforce developers are innovative and highly sought after. Any Salesforce developer will need to be up to date with the advances in the technology. This is because one of the perks of Salesforce is that they offer clients free upgrades three times a year, meaning any Salesforce developer will need to be familiar with the changes.

Salesforce has created the world’s first mobile CRM and they are also the first company to have AI built right into the CRM. In short, they are pushing the boundaries when it comes to CRMs. Any Salesforce developer will need to be on point when it comes to the advances in the technology and be able to implement any necessary changes. Our Salesforce developer interview questions will help you to be able to work out which candidates have what it takes.

Frequently asked questions

What is RealLifeTestingTM?

The driving force behind all DevSkiller Salesforce developer interview questions is the RealLifeTestingTM methodology. This is an advanced testing system that goes beyond traditional coding tests and algorithm puzzles, to provide recruiters with a holistic view of a developer’s skills. It should go without saying that the best way to evaluate a developer’s skills is by presenting them with challenges similar to the work which they will be required to do, but up until now, this is not how developer testing was carried out.

RealLifeTestingTM creates a simulated reality for the candidate and challenges them with tasks similar to those they encounter every day. The developer’s who are great in their everyday work will have no problem progressing through the challenges.

During testing, candidates can build full project apps or add features to existing apps, just like they would once hire. They can demonstrate their knowledge of coding, use resources like Stack Overflow to find solutions, and use their problem-solving skills to progress through to the next stage of recruitment.

How do candidates take a test?

In-house testing can be time-consuming and arduous, but with DevSkiller our Salesforce developer interview questions are taken remotely, saving your business time and money. Just send your candidates a test invite and they can access the tests from anywhere in the world.

To make sure you’re not left waiting around, test invites can be made available for a specific amount of time. The tests also have a time-limit meaning candidates have to work quickly.

During testing, recruiters can observe tests in real-time and monitor their candidates’ progress. The candidates themselves have the option to use our state of the art in-browser IDE, or if they prefer, they can complete the project on their own favorite IDE and then clone the project to GIT. Candidates can check their solutions work by running unit tests

Once the candidate has completed their test, an automatic evaluation report is sent to the recruiter containing the results.
