Senior Cloud Consultant in the USA or Canada

Cloud for Good is seeking experienced technology professionals to lead Salesforce.com implementation projects with nonprofit organizations and higher education institutions. Successful candidates will be highly experienced in deploying Salesforce solutions and ideally have nonprofit or higher education industry experience.

To be successful on client projects, Senior Cloud Consultants will have strong Salesforce configuration knowledge across a variety of Clouds and/or functionalities, as well as one or more demonstrated areas of expertise. They will also have strong consulting skills, such as project and time management and collaboration. Because most of the work of the Senior Cloud Consultant is client-facing, communication skills and a genuine interest in helping people is very important. The ability to collaborate with peers and clients while building consensus is also critical for success. Finally, some Senior Cloud Consultants will be primarily focused on Salesforce declarative and/or technical work, while others are primarily focused on the functional aspects of client projects. Depending on the Senior Cloud Consultant’s primary area, they should have a demonstrated ability to configure Salesforce according to best practices (for declarative consultants) and/or a demonstrated ability to manage project teams, risks, timelines, and budgets (for functional consultants).
