About the role
Reporting into our CIO
, we’re looking for a hands-on Salesforce Administrator
to join our Impact Analytics
team. You’ll be our internal Salesforce champion, identifying room for improvement on our current processes, enabling our teams to maximise their impact. You’ll enable data-driven decision making, playing an important part in helping us to deliver our mission to empower entrepreneurs to do immense good. In your first 6 months you’ll:
- Work closely with a variety of teams to identify their needs and then design and implement contextual solutions to serve them with the right data in the right ways. This could involve improving reporting capabilities, refining data structures, generating bespoke data for specific projects and proposals, providing recommendations on how data should be used in external products, designing new workflows within Salesforce, building more general tech automations to improve internal efficiency, and beyond. You’ll train our teams where necessary.
- Ensure all necessary data is being collected in a logical and effective way, so we can reliably measure and report on our organisational and team KPIs.
- Take responsibility for maintaining our internal data (primarily held within Salesforce) including monthly data quality reviews, system backups and validation and data quality enforcement.
- Synthesise all changes and requests to our Salesforce instance using a holistic approach, working towards a complete understanding of our data model and organisational needs.
- Support data visualisation with appropriate data structures and connections to Tableau.
- Select or build internal automation workflows between our work systems and Salesforce (e.g. Asana, Slack, Dropbox) and guide on appropriate methods for automation (such as building new tooling, using existing APIs or SF Apps, Zapier etc).
Although the above covers your main responsibilities, you’ll also have the opportunity to help out with wider Impact Analysis projects from time to time.Salary: £25,000 - £30,000
Location: UK (flexible remote)
We’re looking for somebody with a nerdy love for creating a beautiful data system that staff can use securely and effectively. You’ll enjoy responding to requests from teams, identifying patterns in those requests and creating solutions to increase efficiency in the work of others.More specifically, you’re likely to have:
- Experience administering Salesforce (a Salesforce Admin Certification would be great, but not essential) in a stand-alone role.
- Familiarity with industry best practices in Salesforce implementation and the ability to lead the charge in making sure we’re set up for growth and increased complexity over the coming years.
- A technical mindset with experience developing and testing via change sets (or Visual Studio), as well as a proven ability to build automated processes using workflows, process builders and flows (Apex would be a bonus), particularly within Salesforce.
- Experience installing and managing 3rd-party apps (e.g. DLRS, NPSP, S-Docs, Crunchbase) that relate to our internal databases.
- A curiosity to build on your Salesforce knowledge to enable you to implement improvements.
