About Tessian

Tessian builds technology to empower people to work safely, without security getting in their way.

Job Description

Tessian protects every business’s mission by securing the human layer

We're building intelligent security that works for human beings as they are, not how security policies would like them to be. Using machine learning technology, Tessian automatically predicts and eliminates advanced threats on email caused by human error - like data exfiltration, accidental data loss, business email compromise and phishing attacks - with minimal disruption to employees' workflow. As a result, employees are empowered to do their best work, without security getting in their way.

Founded in 2013, Tessian is backed by renowned investors like Sequoia, Accel and Balderton and has hubs in San Francisco, Boston, and London.

We’re looking for a hands-on Salesforce Administrator to manage and build our CRM (Salesforce) to support our quickly growing business.

        Provide real-time support for issues relating to Salesforce and other supported platforms     
        Support change management (release) process when new features are rolled-out  
        Manage other 3rd party applications that integrate into SFDC

We'd love to meet someone who:

        Has 3+ years experience as a Salesforce Admin

        A strong understanding of salesforce automation (flows, processes and apex triggers)

        Knows how to balance designing processes that meet current business needs and processes that scale
        Has an ability to break down ambiguous problems into concrete, manageable components and think through optimal solutions
        Has strong listening skills; open to input from other team members and departments but knows when to push back
