As a Senior Consultant….

  • You know Salesforce and nonprofits. You may have started out your career as an accidental admin. You have a passion for nonprofits, and you’ve seen the impact Salesforce can have in an organization that’s working to change the world.
  • You have worked on a variety of implementation projects: You have collaborated with technical and non-technical team members to complete a range of project types from small projects with a straightforward objective, to large projects with many business requirements.  You have worked on and may have led end to end Salesforce implementations that include requirements gathering, providing solution options, communication of options to clients, technical documentation, technical oversight, system testing, release management, and deployment.  You can identify gaps between current and future states and deliver properly positioned solutions.
  • You have a broad set of tools: You feel comfortable determining the appropriate application of configuration vs. custom development, have a strong understanding of the technical applications available inside the Salesforce ecosystem, and you know how to evaluate and advocate for the right tool for the job. 
  • You are a strong communicator: You can distill complex technical ideas for a diverse set of stakeholders from developers, project managers, executives, and clients of all technical levels of sophistication.
  • You are adaptable: The idea of working on several diverse types of projects of different sizes within different organizations excites you.
  • You are a delegator: You like to stay involved enough in projects that you know what is happening, but when you see an opportunity to hand off work to someone else, you take it.
  • You are a critical thinker: You don’t need to be told how to get from point A to point B. You are up for the challenge of figuring out how the pieces of a given project fit together.
