Job Details

Salesforce is #1 in CRM, an innovator in technology, and a leader in philanthropy. We are the World's Most Innovative Company according to Forbes and one of Fortune's 100 Best Companies to Work for six years running.

The mission of the Unified Intelligence Platform is to make using data at scale easy and enabling, by marrying together innovative technology with an outstanding user experience. Substantial amounts of data are generated every single day at Salesforce. Crafting a platform that enables internal users to understand, optimize, and re-envision how the business is and should operate is critical. Modern distributed systems (e.g. Spark and Presto), coupled with AI tech (e.g. Tensorflow and Juypter), and custom data applications (e.g. a comprehensive data catalog and a data portal) are a few of the key ingredients this team is weaving together to make this possible.

We are looking for a technical specialist and leader with vision in the big data space to join the team. You will be working with exceptional peers that you can guide and learn from. This is a rare opportunity to demonstrate and extend your expertise, as we rethink and put into practice a highly impactful, modern, multi-cloud, big data platform.

Some current areas of focus include:

  • How should we gather, distill, and present data lineage information?

  • How should we design the API layer that will front our various data platform services?

  • How should we best craft a cross-cloud data platform, which is powerful, easy to use, and highly enabling for our users?

  • In what ways should we push our cloud providers to rethink their offerings to better enable us?

This is just a small sample of the exciting challenges ahead. Every facet of the data platform will be (re)examined and (re)designed, providing exceptional opportunities for contribution (both breadth and depth).

Required Skills / About you:

  • Extensive expertise in the (big) data space

  • Extensive experience working in the public cloud

  • Ability to transform high-level needs into well thought-out system designs

  • Thrive on taking full ownership of projects, driving them forward to completion

  • Exceptional software development skills (e.g. Python, Java, and / or Scala)

  • Love getting things done (e.g. hands-on prototyping a new approach)

  • Professional problem solver

  • Great communicator

  • Good listener / curious / adaptable / collaborative

  • Ability to lead and influence across all levels of the organization

  • Proven experience thinking outside-the-box and solving tough strategic challenges
