Job Details

September last year, we had the pleasure of opening up an office in Oslo and we have been busy hiring ever since. But we are certainly not done yet - perhaps you are the one we are looking for and perhaps Salesforce is just the company you want to join.

Lets kick off with a brief description of Salesforce :

Salesforce, the Customer Success Platform and world's #1 CRM, empowers companies to connect with their customers in a whole new way.

We are the fastest growing of the top 10 enterprise software companies, the World’s Most Innovative Company according to Forbes, and one of Fortune’s 100 Best Companies to Work for six years running.

The growth, innovation, and Aloha spirit of Salesforce are inspired by our incredible employees who thrive on delivering success for our customers while also finding time to give back through our 1 / 1 / 1 model, which leverages 1% of our time, equity, and product to improve communities around the world.

So why would you consider Salesforce in the first place. Lets ask the hiring manager, Torben Markussen, why he joined Salesforce nearly 4 years ago.

I was immediately taken away by the passion of all the people I met during the hiring process and once I got more into what Salesforce actually is and the Salesforce culture - there was no turning back.

I guess as someone on the outside you have to feel it in order to live it. The focus on customer success is second to none.

I have the pleasure of working with some amazing companies across the Nordics and help them develop and transform the way they interact with their customers.

Salesforce is a company that asks you to bring a beginners mind to work every day driving constant innovation and new thinking.

And finally we have a CEO that believes The business of business is improving the state of the world’ which is translated into our 1 / 1 / 1 model.

So I get to spend at least 7 days a year on volunteering of my own choice. These are just some of the elements I fell in love with and still feel a lot of passion for today
