OUR VISION: THE WORLD. SUBSCRIBED.

Customers have changed. They’re looking for new ways to engage with businesses. Consumers today have a new set of expectations. They want outcomes, not ownership. Customization, not generalization. Constant improvement, not planned obsolescence.  

In the old world (let’s call it the Product Economy) it was all about things. Acquiring new customers, shipping commodities, billing for one-time transactions. But in today’s new era, it’s all about relationships. More and more customers are becoming subscribers because subscription experiences built around services meet consumers’ needs better than static offerings or a single product.

Our vision is “The World Subscribed” where one day every company will be a part of the Subscription Economy® (a phrase coined by our CEO, Tien Tzuo and author of the best-selling book Subscribed)

THE ROLE

The Salesforce Solutions Architect is responsible for designing and delivering sustainable and scalable enterprise-grade solutions, recommending the best solutions and conveying trade-offs involved in selecting one solution over another. It’s the Salesforce Solutions Architect’s responsibility to choose the solution that will hold up over time, that will scale as Zuora grows, and won’t acquire lots of technical debt or require manual changes as time goes on.

  • Work closely with offshore build, enterprise architecture, and various business teams
  • Drive the completion of design documentation for each user story and change in the system, including but not limited to configuration workbooks, data dictionaries, and process flows
  • Identify and reduce areas of technical debt, which has been accrued over years of development and configuration
  • Manage releases, approving configuration and code based items to be deployed between environments, including deployments
  • Drive the adoption of Salesforce best practices
  • Mentor team members in technology, architecture, and delivery of applications

 WHAT YOU’LL NEED TO BE SUCCESSFUL

  • 8+ years relevant work experience and a Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science or related technical discipline
  • 5+ years of experience expertise in integrating Salesforce with other technologies
  • Minimum Salesforce certifications: Administrator, Sales Cloud Consultant, Platform App Builder
  • Desirable Salesforce certifications: Platform Developer I, Application Architect
  • Excellent listening, communication, and presentation skills
  • Ability to build consensus and relationships among managers, partners, and employees
