Job description

We are now recruiting in Tampere for the first time ever, and we have ambitious business goals in the area (we always do). As a Salesforce developer in Columbia Road’s Tampere team, you will be working in a high-impact role in the core of our clients’ businesses. You’ll have an integral role in building the Tampere team, your contribution will have a significant influence on our local operations.

As a consultant at Columbia Road, you will be working in the core of our clients’ businesses; advising, designing and implementing the tech needed to drive the business forward. This is a great opportunity for you if you are looking to become an expert within the area of digital sales and expand your technical skills and know-how within – and beyond if you like, – the Salesforce ecosystem.

Your job is to create business impact by helping our clients utilise the capabilities of the Salesforce ecosystem to the fullest. You automate business processes and develop and enhance existing solutions that are at the forefront of our clients business. You strive to be a full-stack Salesforce developer, even though your current skills might lean more towards backend or frontend development. You know the core Salesforce setup and configuration capabilities well enough to evaluate when custom development is really needed.

Columbia Road's focus on digital sales means that we are tackling a large variety of projects. These range from Experience Cloud and customer 360 data platform projects to Sales and Service Clouds, CPQ and various integrations, where the Salesforce ecosystem is a key enabler. For a few concrete examples of our relevant cases, take a look at the Framery case of a new partner sales and collaboration channel and full business platform build project for Valokuitunen.

We work as diverse teams of digital sales experts, tailored to each project. In most of your projects, you will get to work closely with business designers defining which processes to automate and UI/UX designers to build world-class user and customer-facing experiences. As we believe that best results arise from employee freedom, all teams have wide latitude to choose the best tools and ways of working for themselves. We expect you to be mostly into the Salesforce ecosystem while we hope that you want to grow into a Roadie who can recognise where other solutions might be a better fit.

At Columbia Road, we approach projects from a tech agnostic perspective, choosing the technologies that best suit our clients' needs. Depending on your career goals, you can continue deepening your skillset with Salesforce or expand your know-how to other programming languages, technologies, and platforms as well. We see this as a great opportunity for professional growth and are looking for colleagues who also value this. The more experience you have, the more you'll be able to take responsibility for your client projects and help other Roadies grow as well.

As our Tampere team is still fairly new, an interest in contributing to areas such as recruitment, sales, supporting others and building the Columbia Road culture is highly valued.

Working at
Columbia Road

Columbia Road is a digital growth consultancy challenging the old ways of running digital businesses. We exist to increase our clients’ revenue and help them get more customers in the digital era. Our team consists of business consultants who understand business-driven design, tech, strategy and growth. We believe in giving a lot of responsibility and freedom to our employees. There’s a common misunderstanding that happy and satisfied employees are automatically motivated employees. We don’t see things that way. Happy and satisfied employees are an important priority for us, but we think causal relationship is reversed: people are happy and satisfied when they have work that motivates them. For us, an employee’s happiness is the primary goal, not a tool for raising productivity or profitability. We want to empower our employees to become a better version of themselves and to have more of an impact on the world. We see happiness & satisfaction as end goals, not starting points. That being said we love to laugh a lot, play some tunes at the office and grab a few drinks after work. What kind of work is motivating in our context? People yearn for purpose in their work and want it to have meaning that creates value: purpose, for people and organisations, comes from making an impact on the world. Meaning & significance comes from providing value to someone else — in our case, clients. Clients (not us) define the value of our actions, always. Jobs at
