Who We Are

A national nonprofit founded by teachers, TNTP believes our nation’s public schools can offer all children an excellent education. Today we’re a diverse team from a wide range of fields, united by a fierce commitment to helping school systems end educational inequality. We work at every level of the public education system to attract and train talented teachers and school leaders, ensure rigorous and engaging classrooms, and create environments that prioritize great teaching and accelerate student learning.

TNTP’s Enterprise Systems team supports our organization with internal and client-facing technology needs. The Junior Admin, as a member of the Enterprise Systems team, Central Operations division, supports the processes, systems, reporting and analytics for technology operations at TNTP.

What You’ll Do

The Junior Administrator– Salesforce will join a small team within the Enterprise Systems team to maintain and support TNTP’s Customer Relationship Management (CRM) system, Salesforce. This team works collaboratively with internal groups to analyze process and technology challenges and recommend practical solutions within Salesforce, as well as provide key analytics that support our business development strategy. This includes keeping a pulse on systems and data trends to support our Business Development Operations, Legal, Finance and/or alt-route teams in meeting their goals.

Specific responsibilities include:

  • Ensure that Salesforce is effectively maintained and supported to enable the organization to meet its business needs
  • Manage help desk tickets, including Tier 1 and Tier 2 support, and perform various operational functions to create an optimal end-user experience
  • Design and generate analytical reports, including financial reports
  • Collaborate and communicate with end users to understand their context and user experience
  • Coordinate with other colleagues within Enterprise Systems and across other teams and divisions to ensure a high-quality client experience

What You Bring

We are looking for amazing people who have diverse backgrounds and experiences, are inspired by our mission and are highly motivated to change children’s lives through education. You’ll be right at home here if you learn from failure and overcome adversity, cultivate strong relationships, understand the power of diversity, advocate for equity, aspire to lead through inclusion, and push yourself, your work and the people around you to the next level. You will thrive in this position if you are a creative problem solver who loves technology, especially Salesforce, and knows how to build strong relationships with clients by accurately diagnosing their needs and implementing timely solutions. 

We expect our Junior Salesforce Administrator to:

  • Manage and improve on systems and process. You’ll use your familiarity with CRM systems, technical, analytical and problem-solving skills to propose solutions and run with them every day.
  • Love data.  Your experience analyzing data and making it come alive will be crucial. You will design and implement processes and reports, using Salesforce and Tableau, to ensure data integrity.
  • Connect the dots. You’ll use your strong project management and problem-solving skills to create and execute on multiple, complex streams of work, proposing solutions to thorny issues and making critical decisions on the best course of action for our work. Ambiguity doesn’t scare you; just the opposite, you thrive on it.
  • Partner with clients. You’ll regularly interact with internal and external clients who use Salesforce and will approach solving problems with their perspectives in mind, by responding promptly, providing resources, recommending solutions and motivating them to try out new ways of working. 

Qualifications
