In this latest installment of our series “Breaking down key Salesforce roles,” we dive into the role of Salesforce Architects. Read on to learn all about Salesforce Architects and what you should look for when hiring for this specialized role.

What is a Salesforce Architect?

A Salesforce Architect is the job of a technical genius. They act as a stakeholder’s tech strategic advisor who focuses on transformation via domain expertise across functional, platform, and integration architecture. This role demands comprehensive proficiency in web services, the Salesforce platform, and coding languages, as well as the full gamut of business processes impacting stakeholders.

With their robust knowledge, they clearly communicate technical solutions and potential design and implementation tradeoffs to stakeholders. A Salesforce architect is often responsible for the technical direction of the project. As such, they provide the framework that ensures quality and success. Whatever they create is secure, scalable, and can seamlessly integrate into business processes.

When hiring for a Salesforce Architect, keep an eye out for:

  • Tech wizards who can identify stakeholder-specific opportunities and risks and then integrate that analysis into solution planning.    
  • Sometimes referred to as the leader of the project—they get the work done via a whole-of-business view and all-inclusive knowledge of Salesforce and related technologies.
  • An elite in the Salesforce ecosystem because they undergo rigorous training and review boards to guarantee they can deliver top value.
