This delivery expertise is combined with the ability to foster a positive work environment.


Slalom is seeking a talented, self-starting Salesforce Solution Owner to lead the discovery and implementation phases of complex Salesforce projects for Slalom-built solutions.

  • Act as Scrum Master or Agile Coach.
  • Be the functional and subject matter authority for the solution being developed for the client.
  • Work with the Product Owner to define the product by identifying requirements and thinking critically about what will make it successful; write user stories that effectively communicate the Product Owner’s requirements and that are easily consumed by software development teams.
  • Collaborate with engineering teams to define and validate the technical approach, strategy and deliverables for the project.
  • Estimate effort at varying levels (e.g. high level, work package level) and using various techniques.
  • Proactively handle issues and mitigate risk.
  • Build client knowledge and credibility quickly.
  • Lead, facilitate and attend meetings; provide project status reporting to management; prepare and deliver client presentations and work products/prototypes.
  • Identify potential people-side risks and anticipated points of resistance and develop specific plans to mitigate and address concerns.

Qualifications:

  • 5+ years of experience in Agile Software delivery as a Project, Product or Program Manager, preferably leading Salesforce solutions.
  • Experience in all phases of product, software, and testing lifecycles.
  • Demonstrated strong knowledge in software delivery: Agile, Scrum, Kanban, SAFe, XP and Lean.
  • Experience leading virtual teams.
  • Broad industry experience.
  • Ability to serve as a liaison between both business and technical teams to drive effective, timely solutions that fulfill both strategic and operational needs.
  • Adaptable self-starter who is skilled at creating structure in ambiguous environments.
  • You can employ strong investigative, analytical and interpersonal communication skills, with the ability to work independently or as part of a team.
  • Strong leadership skills, including a history of growing leadership responsibility and career growth in process improvement.
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills with audiences of all levels.
  • Ability to actively identify risks, and drive action to mitigate and resolve issues.
