How to hire MS-SQL developers? Skills to look for, interview questions, and more

Hiring remote MS-SQL programmers with adequate skills and experience requires extensive research and concentrated effort. The cut-throat competition among companies has made the recruiting process a lot more complex and time-consuming. If you are a hiring manager, which are the essential skills to look for before hiring an MS-SQL developer? To help you hire top MS-SQL developers, we have created a comprehensive guide, especially for recruiters who don't come from a technical background.

Skills to look for in a MS-SQL developer?

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

1. Knowledge of databases

Knowledge of databases is crucial when hiring MS-SQL developers because a deep understanding of databases ensures efficient data storage, retrieval, and manipulation, leading to optimized application performance. Moreover, developers skilled in databases can design normalized schemas, reducing data redundancy and maintaining data integrity. They can also create complex queries, stored procedures, and triggers to manage and process data effectively. Due to these reasons, you must hire MS-SQL developers with in-depth knowledge of databases.

2. High proficiency in SQL

We have already discussed how a database is crucial for today’s businesses to function. However, companies do need a language to create and access the database, which is where SQL comes into play. It is a standard language that allows the developers to create, access, and manipulate the data in the database. They are responsible for dealing with data ranging from cloud storage to social media accounts to e-commerce applications and other key sources. But, dealing with this huge amount of data requires adequate experience and knowledge. Therefore, you should hire MS-SQL developers who understand what data is available, what data the company actually needs, and how to manipulate them as per the requirement.

3. Strong analytical skills

The goal of MS-SQL developers is to ensure the performance, security, and availability of databases. Strong analytical skills can help them analyze the patterns in datasets and review the existing SQL queries for performance improvements. Analytical thinking is necessary, especially when working to drive creative solutions and optimize efforts for database improvements. Hire MS-SQL developers capable of developing high-quality database solutions, specifically one that meets the company’s goals and objectives.

4. A clear understanding of T-SQL

MS-SQL or TransacMS-SQL is an extended version of SQL that offers a few extra added features, such as error handling and transaction control. It is primarily used to write T-SQL statements in MS SQL Server Database. Therefore, you should hire MS-SQL developers, who have a clear and complete understanding of MS-SQL and have the capability to use it in all databases, database objects, and servers in the SQL Server.

5. Good communication skills

Regardless of which field the developer is working in, they are required to possess excellent communication skills. The software development process requires collaboration with various cross-functional teams and respective stakeholders, and to do so, developers must have the ability to communicate effectively. When you hire MS-SQL developers, ensure to test them on their communication skills. Keep in mind that the better a developer is at sharing their opinion and inputs, the better it is for the employers.

6. Experience in version control system

Experience in version control is essential when hiring MS-SQL developers because it enables effective collaboration among developers, allowing seamless code integration and tracking changes over time. When multiple developers are working on the same project, it is important to track who made what changes and when. Version control makes this easy by providing a central repository for all code changes.

Create a hiring funnel

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

Top interview questions to hire MS-SQL developers.

Hiring for a new skill is always challenging, even if you’ve been a part of recruitment processes for quite some time. But it is also critical to the success of your project that you hire remote MS-SQL engineers who are the right fit for your team. Here is a list of possible questions that you can use to test the candidates.

A candidate key is can uniquely identify a row in a table and an alternate key is when a table has more than one candidate key where one becomes the primary key while the rest are alternate keys. A composite key is when more than one key uniquely identifies a row within a table.

The SQL profiler is used to trace the traffic on the SQL Server instance. To narrow down the captured transactions, you can use a filter. The trace files can be searched, saved, or even replayed to help with troubleshooting.

TRUNCATE is used to delete all the data from the database. Whereas, DELETE is used to remove data from the database. The key difference here is that DELETE allows you to use the WHERE clause, and when used, it only deletes the rows that satisfy the condition. However, if the clause is not mentioned, it deletes all rows.

Triggers are not able to return value, whereas Stored procedures can return values. You want to hire MS-SQL engineers who not only know the differences between them but also explain how each of them works.

There are four types of Normalization. If a SQL developer knows the various types as well as when to utilize these types, the developer must have a deep understanding of SQL and how it works.
