Build your dream job:

Your view: the waterfront. Your team: inspired A-players. Your ideas: shattering boundaries. Your benefits: stellar. Life in the city by the bay is sweet, especially when you work with the Innovation Labs & Demos team. Are you an entrepreneur at heart who prefers working (and playing) in a hyper-collaborative environment to get your creative juices flowing* At Salesforce, we make the tools that help people work better. We put customers first. And we're looking for a disruptive engineer who wants to play on the best team.

You're a Solution Engineer if:
Your curiosity is insatiable. Your brain craves challenges. You'll take things apart and blow stuff up as much as you enjoy building amazing new things, because you never stop learning. You're a maker, a doer, a thinker. You distill complex problems and propose simple, elegant solutions. You're meticulous and excited about beautiful apps.

You're passionate about new technology. You're hungry for new ways to do things. You follow the latest trends, use fundamental engineering and development principles, and contribute to the Salesforce community and ecosystem.

This is a think-tank styled position where you'll develop innovative solutions to influence our customers' futures and shape the next generation of Salesforce. We will take these ideas and build early versions of products, write articles on industry trends, and feed the tools and lessons back to the organization.

Our customers vary in industry and purpose and as such, projects will vary with one overarching commonality: innovating on how businesses operate and connect with their customers.

We'll be creating solutions like responsive applications for users on mobile, tablet and desktop. We'll build data fusion applications that make use of information from multiple sources, combining them to create even more efficient processes. We'll build smart algorithms that learn user behavior and predict actions. Projects will even involve building connected hardware solutions to push the envelope of the Internet of Things.

This is a unique position at Salesforce that combines Salesforce expertise with an interest in business, product development and marketing to build the future of business tech. If you have experience with Salesforce and enjoy working in a fast-paced environment where you can dream, build, present your creations, and most importantly, make an impact - this role will be a great fit for you.
