Job Type Full-time  



The Salesforce Solution Architect helps design and deliver solutions for enterprise-grade customers using Salesforce products. The primary responsibility is to recommend the best solution for a given set of requirements and articulate the trade-offs involved in choosing one solution over another. With Salesforce, there is never just one way to solve a problem. It’s the Salesforce Architect’s responsibility to choose the solution that will hold up over time, that will scale as the number of users increases, and won’t acquire lots of technical debt or require manual changes as time goes on. The evaluations you conduct will adhere to GEHA technology standards, tools, products, and Salesforce best practices. You will be a key player in developing the long-term Salesforce roadmap – from inception through execution.
