Senior Salesforce Architect
We want to help small businesses win. That’s why we’re here.
We connect small business owners to investors – to create jobs, help families and power economies – because we believe that people are made to do more. And we want to help them.
So, we created the leading online marketplace for small business loans. Our investors have lent £8.1 billion in 110,000 loans to 77,000 small business owners. In a single year, we unlocked 115,000 jobs and contributed £6.5 billion to the global economy. There’s never been a better time to join!
Be part of the team that changes everything. Let’s build the place where small businesses can get the funding they need to win and leave a legacy behind, forever.
This role sits within the “Tech” team. The drivers behind our platform – brilliant people working together to create, code, and build the next game changers.

- 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
- Proven previous hands-on experience with enterprise Salesforce implementations, testing and support. Preferably with multiple Salesforce orgs.
- 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.
- 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 and ideally Application Architect.
- Experience at integrating Salesforce with 3rd party applications (for example Conga/DocuSign) and with other internal systems is a plus.
- Experience working at a financial services company or within another highly regulated industry would be beneficial.
