About Salesforce

We’re Salesforce, the Customer Company, inspiring the future of business with AI+ Data +CRM. Leading with our core values, we help companies across every industry blaze new trails and connect with customers in a whole new way. And, we empower you to be a Trailblazer, too — driving your performance and career growth, charting new paths, and improving the state of the world. If you believe in business as the greatest platform for change and in companies doing well and doing good – you’ve come to the right place.

Salesforce transforms the businesses of hundreds of thousands of customers and millions of users. Your insights will matter - at scale. You distill complex problems into insights that inform design, development, and business decisions. You’re passionate about technology. You’re even more passionate about people. You have deep empathy for their everyday struggles and challenges. You always put their needs first, and you’re unwavering in your desire to provide the best experiences for users.

To that end, you seek out diverse data, and you triangulate them. You eagerly use new research methods to get at the heart of the issue, and you have expertise with the ‘tried and true’ ones. You prioritize the thoughtful inclusion of marginalized people in your research and design processes.
