  • Support engineering teams to integrate backend data with Salesforce via middleware to give our end users an enhanced data experience.
  • Undertake Salesforce release management including Sandbox management, commits to Github and continuous integration.
  • Provide technical leadership and guidance to less experienced engineers on the team.

 Experience we are looking for...

  • Proven previous hands-on experience with enterprise Salesforce implementations, testing and support.
  • Extensive experience of using Salesforce platform languages: Apex, SOQL and Lightning as well as advanced administration tools like process builder, flow and custom settings.
  • Familiarity with Agile software delivery and use of tools such as git (GitHub) and CircleCI for source control and continuous integration.
  • Experience with creation of unit tests in the Salesforce environment
  • Listening skills, excellent customer service skills, and strong professional written and oral communication skills.
  • Attention to detail with the ability to analyse and solve complex problems as well as provide documentation, guidance, and instructions to users.
  • Experience working remotely, and with remote teams, and providing technical leadership to less experienced Salesforce engineers
  • Salesforce Certifications – Service (or Sales) Cloud Consultant, App Builder, Platform Developer I, and ideally Platform Developer II.
  • Experience at integrating Salesforce with 3rd party applications (NewVoice Media/Conga/DocuSign) is a plus.
  • Experience working at a financial services company or within another highly regulated industry would be beneficial.
