Salesforce Project Manager
The Salesforce Project Managers are tasked with facilitating requirements development sessions to gain an understanding of our customer’s current state processes and technology in the CRM space, and supporting implementation work that follows. The PM will elicit current state pain points, and uncover gaps in CRM best practices. From the session output, the Consultant will work with their delivery team to design a future state solution and be responsible for its approval and decomposition into user stories.
