Technology Account Directors Needed

The Taproot Foundation is currently recruiting Account Directors for our Salesforce Database projects.

  • The Account Directors on our Salesforce Database projects have significant experience managing data migration projects, and feel comfortable discussing technical issues with software developers and systems analysts. They are the most senior Service Grant volunteer. The Account Director ensures that the nonprofit is ready to begin a project, helps to negotiate project issues such as scope or timelines, pre-sells deliverables, coaches the nonprofit's Executive Director on possible internal political challenges, and ensures that the nonprofit is both upholding their responsibilities and ultimately pleased with the project. With the Taproot Foundation team, the Account Director makes final staffing decisions, and through periodic check-ins with Taproot Foundation Program Managers they review deliverables for quality and coach the Project Managers. The Account Directors should also have and experience with CRM (experience with Salesforce is a plus).
  • Each Taproot Foundation project lasts 5-6 months with volunteers committing 3 - 5 hours of their time each week, often virtually. This opportunity is flexible enough to work around the schedule of your full-time job. Questions about becoming a pro bono consultant? Visit our new FAQ page:
