Position Description

The successful candidate will be responsible for designing and implementing customer-facing solutions that are usable, scalable, extensible, and maintainable on the Salesforce Force.com cloud platform. Code quality matters. The approach is agile (SCRUM) and test-driven.

Technologies used are Apex (Java-like language), Visualforce (JavaServer Pages-like), HTML, CSS, JavaScript, AngularJS, jQuery and Java technologies. Prior experience of a relational database product is needed.
