Acumen Solutions is hiring a Senior Salesforce Developer/Technical Lead in Toronto, Canada.

In addition to being extremely proficient with development, you don't mind spending half of your time doing other things like architecture and solution design, troubleshooting other people's issues, project management, mentoring and managing junior resources, and occasionally firefighting.

You like the idea of working with cloud solutions or at least you aren't opposed to it.  You want to be hands-on with code but only for half of your time. You like getting in early on designs; you don't need everything presented to you in bite-sized pieces, but you can use, and produce, specific interface descriptions as a basis for discussion.  It matters what your code looks like (It matters to us, and we want it to matter to you). You like it when people look over your shoulder, and you're prepared to give other people feedback on what they're doing as well. You need to be a good writer, speaker, and listener you'll have to explain and justify your designs, and be able to run with other people's ideas and give feedback to them. You should know by experience that whatever you don't understand you can learn quickly.
