How to Get Hired
We asked Salesforce for some inside information on how to get hired at the organization. Here is what they had to say.
What key characteristics tell you a prospective employee will be a great fit for your company?
Game-changers, risk-takers, and boundary-pushers are a great fit for Salesforce. We welcome disruptive people who challenge the status quo, dream up innovative ways to get things done, and see the world with fresh eyes.
We look for people who are collaborative, compassionate, and good listeners. Our employees seek to understand the needs of their teammates and customers in order to solve problems and deliver success.
We seek people with a passion for giving back. Our employees live and breathe our 1-1-1 integrated philanthropy model and care about making a difference in their communities.
Finally, we want to bring on people with a sense of fun! We champion a tight-knit culture filled with Aloha Spirit where we can all enjoy a good laugh and a good time. If a prospective employee isn’t afraid to crack a joke, pull a prank, or share a personal story, that’s always a good sign!
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
Work their networks. We trust the recommendations of our employees in the hiring process, so the best way to get our attention is to have a friend or contact recommend you. Networking, informational interviews, and employee referrals can give candidates an insider advantage.
We’re also very social, so interacting with Salesforce on our social media channels is another great way to connect with us, learn more about our company and culture, and stand out from the crowd.
Are there any unusual or especially rigorous steps of your hiring process that candidates should be aware of?
Tech candidates go through standard code testing and sales candidates are asked to present, but what may be most surprising about our hiring process is the fact that we actually want to get to know you! We hire for culture fit, and put a lot of energy into understanding what makes candidates tick and making sure they will thrive in our culture while also contributing to it.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
We are always hiring exceptional engineers and account executives. These roles are the fuel to our growth engine, and are critical to our success.
What should interested candidates do to find out more and get started?
First, engage with the rich feed of employee photos and culture content on our @salesforcejobs Instagram and Twitter. These channels give candidates an inside look into what life is like at our company and are a great place to join the conversation.
Next, head to the Salesforce YouTube channel to view recordings of keynotes from our global cloud computing events and our quarterly highlights videos. This will give candidates terrific insight into our products, customers and accomplishments.
Finally, visit our careers site to learn about our teams, benefits, employee groups, and to search and apply for open positions.
