For answers, just read on.
First option: Hire a Salesforce CPQ Developer as an employee
Hiring a Salesforce CPQ consultant developer can be a wise decision for some businesses, but it’s crucial to carefully consider the significant implications involved.
At least $130,750 for a yearly salary for a US Salesforce CPQ developer.
Lots of startups, companies, and businesses are offering special benefits such as unlimited paid leave, unlimited coffee, free gym memberships, and much more to attract top talents. These are all costs that should be factored into hiring full-time developers. First, let’s take a look at some of the most basic company-paid benefits according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics:
- Legally required benefits (Social Security, Medicare, unemployment insurance): 8.5%
- Insurance (medical, dental, life): 7.6%
- Paid Leave: 6.7%
- Retirement and savings: 4.3%
- Annual Bonus: 3.5%
- Supplemental pay (overtime and premium): 2.6%
- Employment training tax: 0.1% on first $7,000
What exactly are indirect costs? They’re overhead costs that contribute to the company’s day-to-day operations. Indirect costs can be divided into three broad categories: fringe benefits, overhead, and general & administrative (G&A). Companies spend an average of 25% and 18% of employees’ salaries on overhead and G&A.
In other words, a Salesforce CPQ consultant hired as a full-time employee would cost, in reality, $188,264.
In the United Kingdom, seniors take up to £79,5K a year. This is $95K annually. More affordable but still too expensive for many startups and SMBs.
A small reference point for you: renting an office in a city like New York costs, on average, $15K per employee and year.
When working with in-house developers, you have to pay them even when there is no work to do.
Second option: Hire a Salesforce integration company
Software integration companies can be generalists or Salesforce Pure Player. They exist in different sizes, Salesforce “Clouds’” specialties, and offer end-to-end Salesforce CPQ implementation services.
The cost of hiring Salesforce CPQ developers from these companies can be high due to their expenses to run their business, such as employing staff, providing training, adhering to taxes and regulations, marketing, insurance, and renting office space.
No interest in small projects
Generally not interested in small projects.
Cannot start immediately
Cannot start a project immediately: Need lead time to get ready.
Lack of flexibility
- you cannot quickly start/pause/restart a project according to your needs.
- Changes to projects’ scope or tasks sometimes take days to be enacted and sometimes result in extra “penalty” costs for you.
- It is hard to stop doing business with them due to legal terms clients have to accept first to work with them.
Staff more people than needed
Tend to staff more people than needed for projects.
Rely themselves on freelancers
They rely on freelancers for many projects as they often lack senior and expert profiles in their team, leading to a more expensive bill for you to pay with sometimes difficulties integrating these freelancers with their teams.
Low expertise offshore talents
Some integrators sometimes offer offshore developers, but although they are cheaper than their western colleagues, the quality of their expertise is (way) lower.
Third option: Salesforce recruitment firm
In recent years, companies have increasingly turned to them to hire freelance Salesforce CPQ developers instead of relying on integrators to avoid draining business relationships.
They generally don’t have Salesforce CPQ necessary proficiency to screen the candidates seriously.
Not cheap: They apply a 10-30% markup on average on top of the already expensive western developers’ rate.
Limited pool of talents
Limited pool of available talents: Even if their addressable database of freelances might be significant, in reality, they offer you a limited set of candidates for your needs. Indeed all headhunting firms fight for the same freelances available on the national. Making the available ones more expensive.
Hard to get the best talents
Most sought-after freelances do not like working with headhunting firms as they consider they commoditize their expertise and reduce their rate.
No backup developer
Because of the business model, they cannot offer you a backup developer with the same skill set in case of a problem.
Fourth option: hire yourself through online freelancing platforms
A company looking for a Salesforce CPQ developer often turns to online freelancing platforms such as Upwork, People Per Hour, Truelancer, Guru, and Hubstaff.
Low prices do not equate to a high quality
It’s important to note that low prices often do not indicate high-quality work. Therefore, it’s common to come across beginners or underskilled Salesforce CPQ developers when hiring through these platforms.
Searching for the ideal contractor, interviewing them, etc., is highly time-consuming.
Lack of responsiveness
Sometimes, contractors don’t respond to job requests, which can be frustrating.
No talent vetting
The contractors listed on these platforms have not undergone any vetting process.
It is possible for fraudulent contractors to deceive businesses seeking freelancers on these platforms, although this occurrence is not very common.
If you are dissatisfied with the contractors you have hired, their customer support will not provide any assistance. Your only option is to repeat the lengthy hiring process to find a more suitable candidate.
