Your job.

The Salesforce team at Indeed leverages Salesforce Sales Cloud and Service Cloud to provide our Sales and Client Success organizations with the capabilities, functionality, automation, and workflows they need to engage with our customers, to provide a great customer experience, and to be effective and productive.  We partner closely with these internal customers to identify, plan, design, and implement high-impact projects that leverage all of the capabilities of the Salesforce platform.

Your job:

You'll be expected to grow your technical skills and knowledge of the Salesforce platform, learning new Salesforce products and technologies as the team is implementing them.  For some projects, you'll also work full-stack on Indeed's internal Java and Python development platform. Your projects will require the creation of new components, data models, and APIs, as well as the addition of new functionality to existing components, data models, and APIs.
