Salesforce.com, Inc Infrastructure Product Planner in Bellevue, Washington
Job CategoryProducts and Technology
Salesforce is seeking an Infrastructure Product Planner to support the ongoing growth of our global datacenter systems. These Infrastructure Product Planners will scope, analyze and forecast the infrastructure demand that power our diverse set of products on a global scale. This role will be part of a growing team of capacity planning professionals who have experience with understanding systems infrastructure and best practice planning methods to support demand across our datacenter footprint and infrastructure stack.
This person will be required to work cross-functionally with a number of senior product owners as well as technical service teams across the organization. They should expect to interact with numerous data sources spread across disparate systems to produce a single version of truth for capacity demand for the products they are covering.

The planner will be required to effectively take all of these inputs and produce an ongoing infrastructure demand forecast in the form of compute, storage and network infrastructure. This will involve gathering all available metrics from systems of record to plot growth for that service, the resulting systems demand, and a long term view of the impact of that product on Salesforce’s global capacity supply.
The role will also require building strong interpersonal relationships that will be the foundation of building trust and supporting the continued success of these products over time. This is a very high impact and visible role which will drive the foundation of Salesforce’s infrastructure strategy for years to come. Come join a growing team!
