This is your time to shine! Salesforce is now hiring top graduates for our Solution Engineering Scout Program. Develop your technology and consulting skills and build your career with Salesforce.
#Futureforce is Salesforce's global university recruiting program dedicated to attracting, retaining and cultivating next-generation talent.
The Scout program is uniquely designed for university graduates. It will give you exposure to a myriad of solutions that create business value. You will have many opportunities to impact and learn from colleagues all over the US while having fun and developing your career.
What if you were empowered to solve the most complex business problems that Government agencies face today? What if you could help them achieve results like the City of Boston whose mission was to eliminate homelessness in their veteran population? Thanks to the world's #1 customer relationship management (CRM) platform they were successful in connecting homeless veterans to the services they needed and achieved their mission. What if you could impact farmers and ranchers to not only sustain their business but to grow? With Salesforce USDA is connecting farmers and ranchers to resources that will help them thrive in this changing economy.
As a Public Sector Solution Engineer you will be an expert in Salesforce's applications, platform, and technology, and explain it in terms of the business impact and value it delivers to our Public Sector customers. Solution Engineers work primarily with the account teams to give our customers the confidence to move forward with their projects using Salesforce as their preferred technology. The key to this is unearthing and understanding the customer's business imperatives. This is done through workshops, research, investigation, and spending time with key stakeholders. We then map Salesforce's technology to these imperatives and prove how Salesforce uniquely addresses the customer's requirements. This proof can be as simple as a one-off meeting or involve a complex account strategy involving large teams.
