As a Consultant, you’ll work with a diverse global team dedicated to delivering innovative solutions that transform the ability of social sector organizations to collect, manage, and use their data.

You’ll be a key member of our consulting teams, designing, configuring, and implementing customized systems that speak to unique needs of Vera’s clients. Fellows play key roles across all aspects of the project cycle – from determining the needs of the client and translating those needs into technical specifications, building customized data systems, integrating products, testing systems, and training users.

Fellows join as part of a cohort, which allows you a support network to ensure accelerated growth in this role. You will benefit from ongoing learning opportunities, leadership development, and mentorship from leaders within Vera. Along with all new Fellows, you will attend a weeklong training program in early June that will mix intensive sessions on the project lifecycle and Force.com platform, with team-building and professional skills development activities. Additionally, you will have the opportunity to research new technologies, support directors in the sales process, and build relationships with our clients. All consultants on our team may travel to the field on short-term assignments to gather client requirements or conduct trainings on newly implemented systems.

As an consultant with Vera, you’ll gain valuable experience with Salesforce, the world’s leading cloud-computing platform, currently used by more than 150,000 for-profit and 30,000 non-profit and higher education organizations worldwide. You will gain first-hand experience implementing program monitoring, management, and evaluation systems in health, education, human rights, and other development sectors, while working in a global marketplace.

You will join a team of passionate individuals with diverse backgrounds and experiences, all dedicated to improving the way social impact organizations operate. We’re a self-motivated, creative group, and we emphasize collaboration, flexibility, and professionalism. Vera is a young, rapidly growing company; we encourage all team members to push their own boundaries and drive the company in new directions.

Primary Responsibilities:
– Design, build, and implement cloud and mobile data systems for a range of social service organizations
– Research new technologies, methodologies, and tools relevant to nonprofits and NGOs
– Assist in internal and external communications efforts including sharing the latest research, writing blog posts, and contributing to knowledge management initiatives
– Interact directly with clients, conducting trainings and other meetings; develop client relationships and source new projects
