Why should I become a Salesforce consultant?

Salesforce consultant jobs come in many varieties. These positions give highly qualified Salesforce solution architects and developers the chance to build flexible skill sets that extend outside of tech, or to further specialize in niche areas of Salesforce.

Salesforce software engineers and more

Salesforce software engineers may work in house for Salesforce itself, or for a Salesforce client. Either way, these professionals get their hands dirty creating and updating apps that use Salesforce to deliver powerful business results.

Salesforce positions beyond tech

Not all Salesforce roles are programming jobs! Although you’ll still need exceptional tech skills to be successful, positions like Salesforce Business Analyst or Salesforce Product Manager bridge the divide between shifting business priorities and ongoing software development challenges, streamlining communication on both sides.

What skills do you need to become a Salesforce programmer?

  • Programming Abilities

    While Salesforce famously allows for lots of “no code” customization, to become a Salesforce programmer, you must be able to write code at a very high level. Salesforce coding projects typically use JavaScript to handle frontend development and Apex for backend development, but you may see complex roles like Salesforce engineer jobs that require other languages.

  • Salesforce Specific Languages

    In addition to the mainstream programming languages you’ll need to know, there are a few proprietary Salesforce ‘dialects,’ so to speak. If you become a Salesforce analyst, for example, you’ll likely need to know some of the main Salesforce scripting languages, like Salesforce Object Query Language (SOQL) and Salesforce Analytics Query Language (SAQL), among others.

  • Analytical Abilities

    As a platform, Salesforce puts the power of Big Data into tech leadership’s hands. To successfully leverage Big Data in a role like Salesforce business analyst, your quantitative reasoning, logical, and mathematical skills must be on point.

  • Project Management

    Mastering the technical side of Salesforce is not enough experience to lead a project! Salesforce project managers help keep everyone on the team in alignment about project scope/requirements, ensuring that developers are working as a unit towards a single, shared goal.

  • Collaboration and Teamwork Skills

    Tech is a team sport! Salesforce developer jobs are no different; to be successful, you’ll need to be comfortable working as part of a larger tech team – collaborating, communicating, and working through problems as a unit.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Is becoming a Salesforce developer a good career choice?

    Yes! From entry level Salesforce associate jobs all the way up to Salesforce director and architect roles, creating a career around Salesforce is an excellent decision with lots of areas to explore and potentially specialize. Additionally, due to Salesforce’s status as an industry standard CRM, a skilled developer has their pick of a plethora of industries and organizations looking for Salesforce experience.

  • What are some of the most common roles in Salesforce development?

    Since Salesforce is now so baked into the digital business landscape, there are many different roles as part of Salesforce development. The makeup of each team differs from organization to organization, but on many strong teams of Salesforce developers, you may find some of the following SMEs:

    • Salesforce Admin – Usually a Salesforce SME in their own right, this individual creates automation in Salesforce targeting key business processes, ensures the company’s Salesforce ecosystem is efficient and error-free, and constructs any custom functionalities needed to achieve either goal.
    • Salesforce Scrum Master – If you’ve worked in agile environments before, this title might look familiar! Salesforce Scrum Masters lead Salesforce project teams and make sure that key development resources are plentiful. Providing updates and instruction via daily stand-ups, they also use this time to clear obstacles that may block future progress.
    • Salesforce Solution Architect – These highly skilled professionals are responsible for custom solution design and creation using Salesforce’s products and ecosystem, typically to address an identified business need or problem. A Salesforce Solution Architect generally possesses multiple Salesforce and development related credentials, exceptional programming abilities, and fantastic communication/delegation skills.
  • What are the job responsibilities of a Salesforce engineer?

    Salesforce engineer jobs are very technical positions where the majority of time is spent working directly with Salesforce (and other relevant organizational systems built on top of the Salesforce platform). These experts tend to have a highly inquisitive, curious nature, and they naturally gravitate towards tech and other complex fields.

  • What are the qualifications required to become a Salesforce analyst?

    Salesforce business analysts help organizations make the most of their Salesforce software and solution configuration. While these professionals are still expected to perform very technical tasks, this role is not an application development heavy position — analysts primarily use their considerable Salesforce experience to provide data storytelling, reports, and recommendations to their clients. Below are a few of the basic qualifications needed to become a Salesforce business analyst:

    • A bachelor’s or master’s level degree in computer science or a related (STEM) discipline
    • Professional experience working with Salesforce
    • Strong analytical, logical, and qualitative reasoning skills
    • Knowledge of SQL and database management
    • Teamwork-centric soft skills (e.g., communication and collaboration)
  • What are the industries that hire Salesforce developers?

    Salesforce is used in hundreds of thousands of organizations across the globe, so no matter what type of Salesforce position appeals to you, there’s always another industry with new programming challenges waiting to be discovered.
