TO FORM A SALESFORCE DEVELOPMENT TEAM FROM SCRATCH
Our client is an international bank famous for its skilled IT team. The offices of the company are situated in many major cities, including Berlin. And the Berlin office needed 4 Salesforce developers, preferably with a lead.
The client didn’t have any experience in hiring Salesforce developers — this project was brand-new at that moment. So the company asked us for help.
A PERSON ON THE INSIDE
At that time we had no more expertise than our client but we had experienced recruiters. We basically wangled people from conference websites, thematic forums — from anywhere we could find the word “Salesforce” and a couple of developers.
The position had to be filled quite fast, and that’s why the relevancy of the candidates was the decisive factor. That was where our account manager helped a lot. In this instance, the account manager worked on-site as a coordinator and was well aware of the inner workings of the client’s company.
Among the candidates, the lead position posed the most serious questions. The project assumed the lead was to implement a new system on a tight schedule, and their technical competencies were to be checked by the London team.
Our account manager saved the day here. She coordinated the flows, and under her supervision, the technical interview with the London team was held online.
ALMOST COMPLETE SALESFORCE TEAM IN THREE WEEKS
The online format for the technical interview appeared to be successful: the candidate got the team lead offer, and management thanked our coordinator for mediation and assistance.
At short notice, six introduced candidates got their offers. Quality screening, fast reaction times, exact criteria: insider knowledge was the key to filling the position efficiently.
