Join the TaskRay team.
TaskRay is an agile, rapidly growing technology company that builds project management solutions on the world’s #1 CRM platform, Salesforce. We’re looking for creative, collaborative entrepreneurs to join our team and help build cool new stuff for Salesforce's 3 million+ users.
The founders have 20+ years experience building and taking tech products to market, including over 15+ years working in Salesforce ecosystem. They also have broad startup experience, and have structured the business based on lessons learned.
No frills, but we cover the basics - your health insurance, a retirement match, cell phone reimbursements, and vacation bonuses.
We have a casual and open office environment in Lafayette, CO. Best if all, we’re walking distance to good eats!
We have a strong emphasis on communication (and lots of it) rather than stuffy project requirements. Any of that sounds annoying, we're not for you.
If you are excited to learn new stuff, we have an environment for you to do so.
We’re Excuse Free
We are a team focused on getting things done and we do not accept excuses. Whether you work a little or a lot, we expect motivation based on delivering features not time put in.
You’ll have to take our word for it. But, we really are!
First impressions matter. TaskRay is on a mission to ensure businesses get off to a great start with a flawless customer onboarding experience. TaskRay is the leader in customer onboarding in the Salesforce ecosystem. We help companies manage their onboarding and implementation processes, drive greater efficiencies, and create unmatched customer experiences – all within Salesforce.
As the first Alliances Manager at TaskRay, you will have the opportunity to combine your extensive knowledge of the Salesforce ecosystem and channel development to structure compelling business relationships with our SI, Reseller and Strategic partners. The ideal candidate will be able to open doors, build strong relationships and create momentum with new and existing partners. It will be imperative that the Alliances Manager be able to understand the partner’s organization, products and services and be able to articulate how these partners may best leverage their TaskRay relationship with Salesforce programs and applications to best service their customer needs.
Some stuff that we're looking for, culture-wise:
Connection. We deliver exceptional experiences. We build enduring relationships with both internally and externally by listening, anticipating needs, doing what is right, and always going above and beyond.
Craftsmanship. We are lifelong learners. We approach our work with curiosity and an open mind. We constantly look for ways to improve our products and ourselves, never settling for good enough.
Grit. We run towards challenges. If something seems unsolvable, it unleashes our persistence, our creativity, and our ability to move through uncertainty to create a solution.
Energy. We embrace joy. We love what we do and bring our best selves to work each day. We seek to share our optimism and compassion with everyone around us.
