Salesforce is a cloud computing company known for its flagship Customer Relationship Management (CRM) system. In addition to its many out-of-the-box features, the Salesforce CRM solution offers a comprehensive development environment that enables companies to customize and develop their solutions leveraging Salesforce technologies in the cloud. A Salesforce developer is responsible for the implementation of AppExchange apps according to specific business needs. Salesforce developers have an intuitive understanding of Salesforce architecture and the relationships between objects, and they work closely with architects and BAs to code requirements. Salesforce developers are fluent in SQL and Salesforce’s drag-and-drop tools, as well as Apex and SOQL, Salesforce’s custom programming and query language.

Freelance Salesforce developers can earn a salary between $10-$125 per hour, on average. As the market evolves and demand for Salesforce jobs increases, the Salesforce contractor hourly rate is likely to increase as well.
