Account Executive, Mid-CommercialLocations: San Francisco, CA -- Irvine, CA -- Seattle, WA
Seventeen years ago, we launched Salesforce with a vision to reinvent CRM in the cloud. And a new technology model was born. We also put aside 1% of our equity, 1% of our employee time, and 1% of our product to form the Salesforce Foundation. These two key decisions have fueled our incredible growth, defined us as the global leader in CRM, jump-started the era of cloud computing, and inspired a new philanthropic model for all to follow. Today, Salesforce is powering innovation in sales, service, marketing, community, analytics, apps, and more.
Thanks to our dedicated employees, partners, and the customers we serve, our industry-leading customer platform has become the leading enterprise cloud ecosystem. Industries and companies of all sizes can connect to their customers like never before using the latest innovations in mobile, social, and cloud technology.
