How to hire database developers? Skills to look for, interview questions, and more

Recruiting a database developer is easy, but hiring the right database programmer is a complex process and requires adequate data-related experience and knowledge. Companies that wish to design stable, reliable, and effective databases must hire the best data coders. Several factors need to be considered, including experience with the latest tools and technologies, interview questions related to ETL, databases, etc. Therefore, if you are a non-technical manager interested in learning more about the recruiting process to onboard a highly qualified professional, we've put up an excellent resource for you.

Skills to look for in a database developer?

At a high level, hire database developers who have the following skills in their arsenal:

1. Proficiency in programming languages like SQL

In order to query, update, and reorganize data, as well as create and modify the structure of a database system, it is necessary to have a strong grasp of database programming languages, preferably SQL. Ideally, a professional should also understand other languages like Java, C++, C#, etc., as they might have to develop database systems that support applications written in those languages. However, if the developers work with MySQL, experience with PHP or .NET framework is useful. Hire database developers who have a clear understanding of such programming languages.

2. Knowledge of data modeling

Data modeling is crucial for database developers as it allows them to design the structure, relationships, and constraints of the database system. Effective data modeling enables developers to optimize query performance, ensure data integrity, and facilitate data analysis and reporting. It serves as a blueprint for database development, guiding developers in creating well-structured databases that meet the specific needs of the application and contribute to its overall performance and scalability.

3. High-level proficiency in database management

An ideal candidate should know how to create a database, write SQL statements to extract information, create entity relationship diagrams (ERDs) to design databases, analyze table designs for excessive redundancy, and so on. When you hire database developers, database management is a foundational skill that should not be avoided.

4. Ability to test the databases

Testing is necessary to understand if data values and information received and stored in the database are valid or not. Some databases can be complex, and before launching in real-time, it is vital to make sure the system works as expected. Therefore you should hire database developers with the necessary ability and experience in effectively testing databases.

5. Experience in optimizing databases for better performance

An ideal professional should be able to identify and fix SQL statements or queries that fail to meet a performance standard. This process is important to reduce, balance, and parallelize the workload. Try to hire database developers who can pin down high-load SQL statements, review the past execution history, gather performance-related data, determine the cause of the problem, and come with an optimization plan.

6. Strong interpersonal skills

Communication is a bridge between confusion and clarity, making it an important factor that should be seriously considered during the recruitment process. Developers work with several cross-functional teams, and it is vital to effectively convey the message to others. Hiring the best database developers means that they can easily and efficiently communicate to technical as well as non-technical audiences.

Create a hiring funnel

Creating a hiring funnel will provide you with numerous benefits, like assisting you in identifying the top skills to hire database developers who will fit into your company's culture.

Top interview questions to hire database developers.

Whether you're an IT recruiter or a project manager, you know that hiring top remote database developers is critical to the success of your project. Here are some sample interview questions to use when looking for a new database engineer to work on your database systems.

The key difference between DBMS and RDBMS is that DBMS stores data as a file, whereas RDBMS stores data in a tabular form. Generally, the data is stored in the hierarchical or navigational form in DBMS, on the other hand, RDBMS allows tables that have an identifier (primary key) and data values.

There are four categories of SQL commands in a database that includes, Data Definition Language (DDL), Data Manipulation Language (DML), Data Control Language (DCL), and Transaction Control Language (TCL). You should hire remote database developers who not just list out the names but clearly explains each one of them.

There are 3 types of relationships - one-to-one, one-to-many, and many-to-many. Hire database programmers who can also explain the three relationships in detail.

Normalization is a process to reduce data redundancy and data inconsistency, whereas, de-normalization is the method to add redundancy in order to speed up the query execution time.

Three types of normalization are - First Normal Form (1NF), Second Normal Form (2NF), and Third Normal Form (3NF). Ensure that the candidate explains how all three works.
