About the Opportunity

The Center for Action and Contemplation (CAC) exists to awaken a more loving world through the teaching and practice of the contemplative tradition. To support our mission, we have invested deeply in the technology, team, and external support to move to Salesforce as the backbone of our work. Now, we are looking to expand our team to help us in our goal of creating a comprehensive, organization-wide solution.

We are innovating and having fun while building one of the best Salesforce teams out there. We are structured as a “product team,” which brings a product management focus to the way we build, develop, and maintain our systems.

You will be given the time, resources, and budgets to execute projects well.


The Role

As a Salesforce Administrator, you will collaborate with the CRM Product Manager to develop roadmaps for integrating Salesforce into the entire organization. You’ll be responsible for big systems, new build-outs, as well as system development and/or integration projects. You’ll take the lead on gathering requirements from our internal users, creating the technical architecture, designing the system/build-out, and overseeing quality assurance. In this role, you’ll take on projects like integrating an eCommerce system and measuring constituent participation in programs that equip people to be peaceful agents of change in the world.

You’re right for this role if you are a Salesforce pro who is meticulous about the details, obsessed with quality, hungry to grow, and able to adapt quickly to a constantly changing landscape. Most importantly, you must love working on teams and take pride in delivering well-designed systems to your internal customers.

  • Work with CAC staff to define system needs and show them how to get what they’re looking for out of Salesforce.
  • Manage system and data integrity by establishing end-user best practices, leveraging administrative tools and employing regressions testing.
  • Engage in strategic brainstorming and roadmap planning, new system architecture, existing system iteration/improvements, and compose documentation.
  • Execute various deep-dive technical projects sometimes working collaboratively, sometimes autonomously.
  • Train and mentor junior-level Admins on the CRM Team, along with the CRM Product Manager.
