The ideal candidate is a capable, motivated individual with full stack development experience and a commitment to quickly learning Salesforce development.

About You

You love leading teams. You can engage confidently and directly with the client, communicate project vision, goals, risks, and solution architecture to the team, guide the team through an agile development process, and coach and mentor less experienced teammates.

You do things efficiently. You manage your time well and can execute a task in the time and budget allotted. You can recognize risks and potential setbacks and know how to address them.

You love learning. You’re constantly researching new technologies and staying up-to-date on the latest and greatest. You can identify, learn, and introduce new technologies when a project calls for it.

You like variety. You prefer working with different people for different clients for different projects. You want one work-week to look different from the next and do new things every day.
