Description & Responsibilities

The Salesforce Solutions Architect is responsible for designing, managing and supporting the flow of data through Salesforce. Like many nonprofits, Ceres’ reporting requirements consist of both grant-specific metrics and Ceres’ own programmatic aspirations. The data used for grant reporting, program-related management and internal planning metrics are critical to the operational health of Ceres, and the Salesforce Solutions Architect is to be its steward. This is an excellent opportunity for someone who excels at mapping data models to support complex business processes. In a more front-end capacity, the Salesforce Solutions Architect is responsible for managing our team of Salesforce Administrators to support a consistent and user-friendly interface for the platform. Collectively, the team will be responsible for staying up- to-date with feature releases, evaluating their utility and implementing system enhancements as needed. There is substantial design opportunity across both the data model and user-facing aspects of the system. The Salesforce Solutions Architect is responsible for developing the Salesforce environment as part of a broader data management strategy. Additional consideration will be given to the use and management of data from external sources, integration opportunities and data requirements for both exploratory analysis and tracking of KPIs.
