Intro and practical ideas around Salesforce within EA

Hello world,

My name is Eli and this is my first EA forum post.


  1. I’d like to help EA orgs with implementing solutions based on Salesforce.

  2. I’m looking to connect with other professionals working with this technology.

  3. I’ll be happy to provide advice to people new to this or considering it as a career.

My background

My expertise is helping organizations make the most using their operational systems. For the last 10+ years I have worked primarily with the Salesforce technology to empower stakeholders and teams in organizations e.g. allowing a team to get more applications processed, better reports, avoid duplicate data entry. Currently I’m a freelancer and having discovered EA last year I’m excited about making the most impact using my skills.

Why Salesforce?

Salesforce is a very popular platform both in the commercial as well as in the non-profit sector. Many of the larger EA orgs such as CEA & Open Phil are already using it. But in addition to being a good solution for organizations, it is also an extremely good way for people from all backgrounds to get into well-paid careers in the tech world.

What I’m looking for

I would love to harness my skills and experience to help EA-related organizations but found that there are few job ads for this specific role while my network is not yet broad enough in the EA community.

Target audience:

  • If you’re working in an EA-related org that could use help—let’s chat to bounce ideas.

  • If you are also already working with the technology let’s connect.

  • If you’re interested in a career path as a Salesforce admin/​consultant—I can offer mentoring.

Disclaimer: I’m looking for freelance/​employment opportunities but happy to offer free advice.
