How to Hire Top Salesforce Lightning Specialists

Salesforce Lightning empowers both developers and nondevelopers to build performant web apps from reusable, responsive UI (user interface) components.

So how do you hire Salesforce Lightning specialists? What follows are some tips for finding top Salesforce Lightning specialists on Upwork.

How to shortlist Salesforce Lightning professionals

As you’re browsing available Salesforce Lightning consultants, it can be helpful to develop a shortlist of the professionals you may want to interview. You can screen profiles on criteria such as:

  • CRM fit. You want a Salesforce Lightning specialist who understands the technologies and processes behind your CRM pipeline.
  • Project experience. Screen candidate profiles for specific skills and experience (e.g., creating custom Lightning web components from scratch using HTML, CSS, and JavaScript).
  • Feedback. Check reviews from past clients for glowing testimonials or red flags that can tell you what it’s like to work with a particular Salesforce Lightning developer.

How to write an effective Salesforce Lightning job post

With a clear picture of your ideal Salesforce Lightning specialist in mind, it’s time to write that job post. Although you don’t need a full job description as you would when hiring an employee, aim to provide enough detail for a freelancer to know if they’re the right fit for the project.

An effective Salesforce Lightning job post should include:

  • Scope of work: From analytics web portals to Salesforce websites, list all the deliverables you’ll need.
  • Project length: Your job post should indicate whether this is a smaller or larger project.
  • Background: If you prefer experience with certain industries, web technologies, or Salesforce tools, mention this here.
  • Budget: Set a budget and note your preference for hourly rates vs. fixed-price contracts.

Salesforce Lighting Specialists FAQs

What is Salesforce Lightning? 

Salesforce Lightning is a component-based app development framework. It was developed by popular CRM (customer relationship management) SaaS (software as a service) provider Salesforce.

Here’s a quick overview of the skills you should look for in Salesforce Lightning professionals:

  • Salesforce Lightning
  • CRM
  • Web design and development
  • Familiarity with other Salesforce tools (e.g., Sales Cloud, Wave Analytics, Marketing Cloud)

Why do you want to hire Salesforce Lightning specialists?

The trick to finding top Salesforce Lightning specialists is to identify your needs. Is your goal to empower marketers and administrators to build their own custom CRM apps without writing code? Or do you require a web developer to unlock the full potential of Salesforce Lightning? The cost of your project will depend largely on your scope of work and the specific skills needed to bring your project to life.

How much does it cost to hire a Salesforce Lightning specialist?

Rates can vary due to many factors, including expertise and experience, location, and market conditions.

  • An experienced Salesforce Lightning specialist may command higher fees but also work faster, have more-specialized areas of expertise, and deliver a higher-quality product.
  • A freelancer who is still in the process of building a client base may price their Salesforce Lightning services more competitively.

Which one is right for you will depend on the specifics of your project.

How long should you contract a Salesforce Lightning specialist to complete your project?

As difficult as it is to estimate how long you will need a Salesforce Lightning specialist, budgeting time is very important to keeping your project on track.

Be prepared to budget more time for more-demanding Salesforce Lightning projects. For example, using existing UI components to build a landing page will typically take less time than developing a custom Lightning component from scratch.

What are the steps involved to hire Salesforce Lightning specialists?

Here’s how to hire Salesforce Lightning consultants in four simple steps:

  1. Identify your project needs, whether it’s writing custom APIs or building internal web portals.
  2. Define the scope of work and write a detailed job post. Be specific about deliverables (e.g., create a custom header).
  3. Review proposals and shortlist potential Salesforce Lightning specialists for unique skills needed to bring your project to life (e.g., integrating Lightning components with your React app).
  4. Interview Salesforce Lightning talent to gauge whether they’re the right fit for your project. Here are some sample interview questions.
