Job Details

Founded in 1999, Salesforce is the global leader in customer relationship management (CRM), empowering companies to connect with their customers in a whole new way. Companies of every size and industry are using Salesforce to transform their businesses, across sales, service, marketing, commerce, and more. At Salesforce, we harness new technologies that can entirely transform our companies, our careers, and, hopefully, our world.

Salesforce is built on a set of four core values: Trust, Customer Success, Innovation, and Equality. By making technology more accessible, Salesforce is helping to create a future with greater opportunity and equality for all. This has taken our company to great heights, including being the fastest growing of the top 10 enterprise software companies, the World’s Most Innovative Company according to Forbes, and named one of the FORTUNE "100 Best Companies to Work For®" 2020 — 12 years in a row! Earlier this year, we completed the acquisition of Vlocity, a leading provider of industry-specific cloud software built natively on the Salesforce platform, which as of September 30th has been rebranded to Salesforce Industries. It is in this hugely innovative and exciting part of the Salesforce Ohana that we are currently recruiting for this position.

What is a Solution Consultant at Salesforce?

Also known as a "Presales Consultant," "Sales Consultant," or “Sales Engineer”, the Solution Consultant is a key member of the sales team, responsible for leading all aspects of the technical sale, as well as delivering product, technology and industry thought-leadership to companies wishing to digitally transform their business processes and their customer experiences. The Solution Consultant is an experienced industry expert who works closely with the account executive team, professional services team and customer success team to configure, build, demo, architect and articulate the value of our innovative industry solutions to our prospects and customers.
