About Salesforce:

Salesforce, the Customer Success Platform and world's #1 CRM, empowers companies to connect with their customers in a whole new way. The company was founded on three disruptive ideas: a new technology model in cloud computing, a pay-as-you-go business model, and a new integrated corporate philanthropy model. These founding principles have taken our company to great heights, including being named one of Forbes's \"World's Most Innovative Company\" five years in a row and one of Fortune's \"100 Best Companies to Work For\" eight years in a row. We are the fastest growing of the top 10 enterprise software companies, and this level of growth equals incredible opportunities to grow a career at Salesforce. Together, with our whole Ohana (Hawaiian for \"family\") made up of our employees, customers, partners and communities, we are working to improve the state of the world.


Many companies have some type of HR shared services center, but our effort at Salesforce is not about a center, but about delivering an employee experience. We are a showcase of our world-class technology and service, and what we are building is special. Come and be part of something big. Our focus is building and delivering an amazing experience for our customers - our employees - using our own trusted Customer Success Platform that we deliver to our external customers. Experience working in an HR shared services organization is ideal.

This person must be comfortable dealing with highly sensitive and confidential matters. Our ideal candidate enjoys working in dynamic and high-growth environments and is experienced in supporting a variety of HR disciplines.
