Salesforce Solution Architect


LavaBox helps aspirational organisations leverage the Salesforce platform to scale with confidence.

We’re looking for an experienced Solution Architect with a knack for designing elegant systems that solve complex business problems. Playing a leadership role within LavaBox’s growing Salesforce practice, you’ll fully-utilise your deep platform knowledge and business process insight.

This is an opportunity, not only to design impactful systems, but also to develop your ability as a mentor and coach, sharing your perspective and experience to make those around you better. If you’re looking to make a meaningful impact in growing practice, this could be the role you’ve been searching for.

The role:

Solution architecture  

You’ll act as lead consultant on larger-scale, transformative Salesforce projects. On more straightforward projects, you’ll provide solution guidance and oversight to less-seasoned consultants, helping them arrive at the optimum architecture.

 You’ll work with clients who put a high degree of trust in LavaBox. They look to us not only implement new technology, but to change the way they run their business. LavaBox projects cover a broad spectrum of the Salesforce platform, including Sales Cloud, Service Cloud, Community Cloud,, Integration Platform as a Service (IPaaS), Pardot, Field Service Lighting and Configure, Price, Quote (CPQ).

Project delivery

As a natural mentor and coach, you’ll lead a team of developers, technical and functional consultants to bring your vision for the system to life. You also won’t mind rolling up your sleeves to help on the build when the need arises.

You’ll play a leading role in presenting and demoing solutions back to both business and technical project stakeholders, communicating with clarity and confidence.

To ensure client expectations and budgets are kept on track throughout the project, you’ll have the support of LavaBox’s dedicated delivery manager.  

Internal systems and practice development

Working closely with LavaBox’s senior leadership team, you’ll support the development, planning and execution of internal development projects to help drive LavaBox forward.


Experience and qualifications:

To be considered for the position, you’ll need:

  • 5 + years of enterprise CRM consulting / solution architecture experience (with at least 3 years working with Salesforce specifically)

  • A track record of successfully-delivered Salesforce projects

  • A relevant tertiary IT or business qualification

  • Salesforce certifications: the more the better!


You’ll know you’re the right candidate because you’re:

An intelligent architect - creating solutions that deliver on business requirements, considering data models, business process improvement, end user and customer experience

An inspiring challenger - with an ability to create a shared vision with clients and drive them towards achieving it. Putting your point of view across with confidence comes naturally to you

A Salesforce platform evangelist - you love the platform and are continuously expanding your knowledge, technical skills and delivery approaches.

Passionate about project outcomes - nothing gives you more satisfaction than seeing your team deliver work that translates into tangible wins for users and customers

A mentor and a coach - colleagues look to you for guidance in the search for the optimal solution. You deliver feedback in a way that resonates and is taken on board
