- Apple okpH67I had come from AWS to Salesforce. While I met a lot of incredibly smart and hard-working people, the top engineers who were really trying to build interesting technology were stuck working on things that weren't really that interesting or cutting edge. The way I'd put it is that Salesforce isn't a technology company -- it sees technology as a means to create a sales product.
- Gotcha! Thank you for the insight
What about Solution Engineer roles at Salesforce or the Solutions Architect role at AWS? I’m looking to make the jump from MSFT to either one of these. I know they’re not traditional engineering roles, but just wanted to know what you thought of them given your experience with both companies.
Thank you :)
- Keep in mind salesforce is a saas company vs amazon being iaas and pass. SE at salesforce involves a lot of demo construction and storytelling, not a tech heavy role in general. Demo construction is mostly configure and customize, packaging stories for customers. If you like that kind of work then it is great. Most of the skills you gain are valuable within the salesforce ecosystem, not very valuable outside.Jun 15 1
