Because when our people grow, our business grows. Every day. Every way.


A Salesforce Solution Architect helps design and deliver solutions using Salesforce products. The primary responsibility is to recommend the best solution for a given set of requirements and articulate the trade-offs involved in choosing one solution over another.  With Salesforce, there is never just one way to solve a problem. It’s the Salesforce Solution Architect’s responsibility to choose the solution that will hold up over time, scale as the number of users increases, and won’t acquire technical debt or require manual changes as time goes on.  You will need a deep understanding of the Salesforce platform but just as importantly, top-notch people skills to get your ideas and solutions across to stakeholders and gain integrity to get your visions built into successful solutions.

  • Own the design of Salesforce solutions for Sales, Service, Experience, Marketing, and Loyalty Cloud
  • Provide guidance on user story writing style
  • Ensure success and acceptance criteria are defined for each story
  • Describe and illustrate designs with appropriate justifications
  • Ensure documentation of the steps for testing
  • Supervise the configuration, quality assurance, testing, and deployment of Salesforce
  • Collaborative project and work stream planning


What you will bring:

  • Bachelor’s / Postgraduate degree or professional qualification in Business, Computer Science, Marketing, Finance or a similar field of study
  • At least 7 years’ experience in a lading role in delivering Salesforce projects
  • Excellent communication skills, written, verbal, and interactive when online

What we offer:

Experience our global diversity and enterprising spirit while helping us create innovative technologies and a positive impact that helps feed the world’s nearly 8 billion people. From the day you decide to join AGCO, we want to engage and excite you and we’re clear on where we want to go as a business and we trust you to help us there.
