Our consulting team runs projects from two day SFA projects to complex cross platform application development projects.  We will take your Salesforce consulting game to the next level.  Our existing team has a wealth of experience to share and a desire to keep pushing the envelope.  We lead a team of experienced developers who can build whatever our consultants design.
As a Technical Architect, you have experience as a Sales Engineer, Software Consultant and Product Manager.  You listen to and collaborate with a client on their vision; know how to achieve that vision with the right combination of people, process and technology; and are able to execute your ideas with intense and thoughtful purpose and leadership. You must love learning new things and assimilating new technologies into your solutions. Our success depends on you thinking creatively, owning projects and building client relationships.
Success Predictors
A good indicator of success for technical architects is that your friends find you a bit too analytical.  You must be curious, able to tease information from people and willing to determine a solution from several possible alternatives.  You’ll need the verbal and written dexterity to describe your ideas to both geeks and Luddites.
