Now Hiring: Information Systems Manager

Posted by Rebecca Lavigne at May 02, 2013 03:50 PM |

Washington Trails Association is now hiring for its first Information Systems Manager. Apply by May 31.

Spread the word! Washington Trails Association is now hiring for our first Information Systems Manager.

  • Do you know what CRM stands for? Can you articulate to your non-techie nonprofit colleagues how it will help them run their programs more effectively?
  • Did you go to last year's Dreamforce conference and get more excited about learning Salesforce admin tips and tricks than seeing performances by MC Hammer and the Red Hot Chili Peppers?
  • When you login to to save hikes using My Backpack, do you wonder why you can't also see which trail work parties you're registered for, or see the expiration date of your WTA membership?

If you answered yes to these questions, then you might just be the forward-thinking technology administrator and project manager we're looking for.

Join a great team

The Information Systems Manager will work closely with staff from WTA's fundraising, volunteer trail maintenance and communications teams to manage our Salesforce database. The position will also spearhead upcoming projects to better integrate Salesforce with and other internal systems.

One of the cool things about coming to work for WTA - besides the great mission, of course - is that each of your 20+ colleagues is a Salesforce user. Those you'll work with most closely are equally excited to help take our Salesforce system to the next level. In fact, your ability to collaborate with us and keep us moving toward our goals is exactly what we need.

How technical is the position?

So how much of a techie do you need to be? You'll be encouraged to work with outside vendors when we need programming and other way-technical expertise (though if you have those skills we'll certainly be impressed.)

Apply by May 31
