Salesforce Developer at Newsela
The Salesforce Developer owns all things related to our Salesforce platform, and will act as a thought leader and expert in maximizing the effectiveness of the CRM within the organization. Reporting to the Salesforce Development Manager, you will play a key role in executing initiatives directly tied to the development, design and implementation of Salesforce. Working with Business Analysts, Project Managers, Sales Ops, Marketing, Product, and Finance, you’ll build customized solutions in Visualforce, Apex, Java, AJAX, and other technologies that support team needs and drive key business decisions. You will also help architect a clear plan for enhancements to our current sales cloud, and implement strategies to align and standardize all department processes in Salesforce.
Why You’ll Love This Role:
As a member of our growing Customer Optimization team, you’ll get to help define, communicate, develop, and release new applications/code and updates to existing applications/code. You will be a lead influencer in designing and developing the technical tools that our sales team uses to grow their books of business. Your work will enable our sales and customer success teams to expand Newsela’s reach, and ultimately get engaging, culturally responsive learning content into the hands of K-12 students and teachers nation-wide
Why We’ll Love You:
With 2+ years experience developing custom solutions on the Salesforce.com platform, you have demonstrated proficiency in custom objects, workflow and validation rules, email templates, formulas, dashboards and reporting, and Sandbox-to-Production processes. You’ve worked with Salesforce CPQ in the past, and can leverage your knowledge of Apex (Language, Trigger, Class, Web Service), Visual Force (Page, Component, Controllers), SOQL and APIs to build solutions that meet team and business needs. You also have a passion for data structures, data modeling and database schemas, and have some basic knowledge of using SQL. Bonus points if you have familiarity with Service Cloud, Snowflake, and Lightning.
