NGINX helps the world’s most innovative companies deliver their sites and applications with performance, reliability, security, and scale. More than 300 million sites — including half of the Internet’s busiest websites — rely on NGINX. Companies like Airbnb, Box, Instagram, Netflix, Pinterest, SoundCloud, and Zappos use NGINX for advanced load balancing, web and mobile acceleration, security controls, application monitoring, and management. 

Our Business Operations team is looking for a personable Salesforce Developer to join our team in our San Francisco HQ. This role’s main responsibilities will be backend SFDC developer but will also constantly be working cross functionally with many of the teams here: Sales, Marketing, Finance, etc, so communication and ability to work collaboratively with different opinions is key.  This person will be technical in nature but also have the experience to see the big picture and ability to suggest the next stage of SFDC implementation.  This role is based out of our San Francisco headquarters.  Remote candidates will not be considered.

We work with lots of third party tools, i.e. Marketo, Intacct, and InsightSquared, to name a few.  Any experience with an ERP is fantastic, but Orcale or NetSuite is even better.  Because of the nature of this role, the technicality needed and the high visibility of this role, at least three years experience as an SFDC developer is required.

The individual in this position will need to know when to agree and when to push back in order to protect the integrity and quality of our data, the seamlessness of our user experience and the alignment with our overall business strategies.  They will be looked at as the subject matter expert when it comes to how and related CRM applications can and should be used across the entire customer life cycle.

The NGINX culture is built upon our core values: progress, excellence, openness, and curiosity. We’re a small, growing company with a startup culture and products that are chosen for high performance and efficiency by innovators around the world.
