Who we are looking for

A catalyst for our digital transformation, driving innovation and improving business processes and their implementation with a strong focus on Salesforce but also embracing other contemporary and cloud-based software solutions.



  • Orchestrating applications on our Salesforce platform, your focus is on ensuring a seamless service delivery for all end users and business processes
  • You are the architect behind analysing, designing and implementing solutions; closely aligning with business users while managing stakeholders and their needs
  • Beyond Salesforce you are fine-tuning and optimizing processes, expanding your impact to broader processes
  • You oversee external providers, project teams and developers to keep everything running smoothly
  • You create and maintain reports and dashboards, your expertise extends to data analysis in external systems through integrations and a detailed know-how of the internal data model
  • You are the strategic thinker planning sprints and backlogs, steering acceptance testing and release cycles
  • Collaboration is key as you work with the IT team and other business departments to integrate Salesforce-based processes into the overall process landscape




  • A degree in Computer Science or equivalent is the foundation of your expertise.
  • With several years of hands-on experience as a Salesforce administrator, developer or consultant, you feel at home in the Sales Cloud and ideally also in the Experience (Community) Cloud.
  • Your skills include (ideally agile) project and change management, requirements analysis and stakeholder management
  • A solid knowledge of data management, data models, objects and relationships is one of your strengths.
  • You are well versed in process optimisation and automation using tools such as flows, process builders and validation rules.
  • API expertise is in your toolkit, using REST APIs for ETL processes and connecting to databases, cloud components, and data analytics tools beyond Salesforce
  • Proficiency in Salesforce development is your forte, using technology such as Apex, Lightning Web Components and Visualforce
  • Your communication skills shine, enabling you to convey complex technical issues to business users, understand requirements and align with stakeholders
  • While you possess basic know-how of DevOps, ideally Azure DevOps is a bonus but not a must
