Skills to look for in a SQL developer?

At a high level, SQL developers should have the following skills in his/her arsenal:

1. Proficiency with Microsoft T-SQL

Proficiency with Microsoft T-SQL is one of the important skills to be an efficient SQL developer. Transact-SQL or T-SQL adds multiple features to SQL, such as error handling, transaction control, among others. You want to hire a SQL developer who has an in-depth understanding of T-SQL and can use it in all databases, database objects, and servers in SQL Server.

2. Familiarity with the SQL frameworks

Frameworks are environments with tools that help applications to be more efficient while coding. Frameworks such as SQL Translation are used to migrate a client application that uses SQL statements with vendor-proprietary SQL syntax. It is common for SQL developers to have familiarity with various databases and big data technologies. However, you don’t want to hire a developer who is just familiar with the common tools. Rather, you want to hire someone who knows exactly what framework to choose and what features should get prioritized in the first place.

3. Familiarity with version control systems

Development of any application is incomplete for a developer without prior knowledge of code versioning tools. Popular versioning tools such as Git help SQL developers to control each and every step in the process of application development. SQL developers who have adequate knowledge of working with such platforms can work efficiently on any project.
