Salesforce Junior Administrator

Salesforce Junior Administrator


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 our technology, team, and external support to build Salesforce as the backbone of our work. Now, we are looking to expand our CRM team to help us reach 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. In this role, you will not only get to be a part of a highly driven and collaborative team, but you’ll work for an organization that promotes a healthy work-life balance and invests in your professional growth.


The Role

As the Junior Salesforce Administrator, you will help build, understand and manage our system from the ground up. Practically, this means you’ll own day-to-day admin duties, contribute to larger build outs, and lead the promotion and adoption of Salesforce within the organization. We’re looking for an avid Salesforce super-user who has experience with administration responsibilities like creating reports, dashboards, and custom fields, troubleshooting issues, and supporting other end-users. What’s most important is that you are a highly motivated, meticulous, natural problem solver with good instincts. If you are ready to dive into the art and science of implementing Salesforce within a mission-driven team, then we want to talk to you.



  • Work with the CRM Team to build the CAC’s database infrastructure.
  • Create users, fields, objects, reports, dashboards, validation rules, workflow rules, process builder, approval processes to address and improve new and existing business needs.
  • Update and maintain user records, profiles, permissions, and security.
  • Lead data clean-up and migration efforts.
  • Provide excellent training to CAC staff on usage of Salesforce and lead internal adoption.
  • Answer user questions, define user needs, and translate system needs back to the CRM Team.
