The Salesforce Talent Market

For many years the Salesforce talent market has been highly candidate driven, with competition to attract the best of the pool. We’ve seen a huge shift in demand for “niche within a niche” in the Salesforce ecosystem. Our customers are asking for more specialized talent to implement, maintain, and enhance their systems to get the most ROI for their business.

Some of the most distinguishing features among placements include top-level Salesforce certifications, as well as strong migration or implementation experiences. While Sales and Service Cloud are the two most popular instances among our clients, candidates who have strong experience in niche skillsets impress many leading organizations. Computer Futures helps clients and our prospective clients determine the level of granular knowledge that will add most value to their organization's needs in accordance with their projects and goals.

Who's Hiring in the Salesforce Ecosystem?

Despite dramatic spikes in the unemployment rate across the globe in 2020, Salesforce professionals remained in high demand. The Covid-19 pandemic shifted consumer expectations of service, usability, and deliverability. Companies who had not previously embraced Salesforce were forced to pivot to newer and more digital business models. Many large enterprise companies have long been using older CRM technology (Java, .Net, Angular JS, Siebel, etc.), and now are able to migrate their information to the Salesforce platform.

These are the industries with major companies requesting Computer Futures' help sourcing the talented professionals they needed:

  • Finance
  • Ecommerce
  • Technology
  • Non-Profit and Education
  • Health and Life Sciences
  • Retail
  • Communications and Media

From bridging the gap between a company and their Implementation Partner, setting up new procedures and systems, or advancing interdepartmental support, companies need talent that provides business solutions to their teams.
