Will the technology stack at salesforce be age-old or do they change the things as per the market especially for back end engineers like more open source projects on big data , cloud databases and contributing towards open source like Uber /LinkedIn ?

    It depends on org, cloud and team. I’ve experienced three teams all in infra as intern and new grad. In these infra teams, I have not worked with legacy codes and worked on new services that use techs that are up to date with the industry.

      Infra is cool regarding tech stack and learning

    The core product which most people work on is really old Java code and OracleDB on the backend. The front end is kinda better, it’s a framework kinda like React but created in house within the company. If you work on the backend of the core product, basically the stack probably isn’t going to change much for a long time just because of how convoluted and monolithic it is.

      So I've heard. I've heard they were a really heavy Oracle (and previously Sun) shop to the point of running Java and Oracle on SPARC until recently.

    Depends on where you land, no two clouds are the same and there is a ton of legacy Oracle crap

    I don’t agree. Sure Salesforce has some old tech and reliance on XMLs, but the new Ux framework is great and we always run the latest java versions developing in the way we like to. Also, if you go to any of the acquisition teams, you can potentially implement and design a lot more there.
