What is a Salesforce Developer?

A Salesforce developer is a programmer who builds Salesforce applications. They are hired by a client for the purposes of customizing Salesforce to the specifications of their business.

Salesforce developers are responsible for daily CRM systems support and implementation, peer review and documentation of Salesforce solutions to projects of the CRM Roadmap. A Salesforce developer may also support effort estimation, basic configuration, and user testing to help ensure the delivery of robust and scalable solutions.

An important speciality of a Salesforce Developer is to build positive relationships with clients in order to determine how they intend to use Salesforce, identifying the needed core functionality.
