We had trouble sourcing candidates for this position, as the salesforce community in Macedonia is very small, it consists of about maybe 50 people who are avid users and knowledgeable in Salesforce and have the specific certificates. They also tend not to switch jobs and are very skeptical of the salesforce projects in Macedonia from foreign companies.
