As part of the Salesforce Center of Excellence, you will take on new solutions on a regular basis and collaborate with the rest of the team to bring value to our customers, leveraging both, a vast repository of Capgemini-Europe accelerated solutions as well as domestically designed and crafted ones.

  • Putting your creativity to the limit, by designing key customized enterprise solutions, including significant work in UX and user-friendliness design thinking
  • Contributing to the growth of the practice through providing thought-leadership, defining and driving technical vision and strategy, including facilitating technical innovation
  • Developing relationships with potential and current customers, facilitating workshop sessions, providing guidance towards Salesforce solutions that bring the greatest likelihood of long-term success and fit into their overall technology strategy
  • Working with external vendors across internal IT spanning all disciplines, from Architecture, Development, Testing and Support in order to ensure that the outcomes delivered meet the business benefits and adhere to agreed standards, policies and design patterns
  • Providing mentoring and sharing knowledge of the Salesforce platform with others, especially newer members of the team

What we expect from you
