Job Description

The Role
One of the significant transformation programs in SEEK is the CRM Transformation program for Asia markets. The CRM project is focused on enhancing current Customer Relationship Management system. A key objective of the CRM project is to have all client data integrated and available through one central platform, so SEEK can become more efficient in how it manages multi-functional relationships with its customers, and more sophisticated and targeted in how it engages and delivers insights. This is a large-scale transformation, which has change implications across the entire business.

Given the scale and complexity of change involved, the project has identified the need for an experienced Integration Lead to lead the integration solution for the next 24 months. This person will play a key role in requirements gathering, integration analysis and subsequently the design and implementation phases.

You will have an in-depth understanding of CRM and ERP systems and extensive experience across enterprise application design, development and support. Prior experience with Salesforce or similar CRM systems as well as exposure to AWS (or similar cloud platforms) in a complex enterprise environment will be highly regarded.

As an integration lead, you will be responsible for the development and co-ordination of integration design, build and deployment activities. You will both guide and have a strong hands-on role in the development of the solutions and artefacts, working with both internal stakeholders and external vendors.

Key responsibilities:

  • Leading and contributing to the design, development and co-ordination of integration solutions between legacy in-house built CRM and Salesforce platforms
  • Establishing and designing the systems integration framework required to deliver the CRM transformation
  • Engaging with technical and business team members to ensure integration build activities are delivered in line with project budget, schedule and solution requirements

  • Facilitating integration requirements workshop with business and technical resources
  • Assisting in the development and execution of test phase activities for integration/interface testing
  • Providing solution governance advice and direction across the integration solution to ensure correctness and quality of the end-to-end solution
  • Collaborate with the Architecture Teams across SEEK to ensure the recommended CRM solution architecture (including integration) is well considered and appropriate.
  • Drive the delivery of CRM technology and integration requirements and solutions.
  • Ensure the right technology team members are sourced and available to deliver to program timelines.
  • Maintain ongoing collaboration and planning with relevant stakeholders to effectively manage resources and dependencies.
  • Drive clear communication and status reporting to inform project planning and resourcing requirements as well as managing expectations for broader stakeholder groups.
  • Resolve issues and mitigate risks through effective collaboration and negotiation with the project team and stakeholders.
  • Drive a continuous improvement culture in delivery stream through regular retrospectives, as well as ongoing practice and process adjustments.
  • Effectively share knowledge with other project and business teams to ensure learnings and improvements are implemented throughout the wider SEEK business.

So, what we are looking for?

  • Proven experience in managing successful integrations between CRM, Salesforce and other technologies
  • Demonstrated ability to co-ordinate business and technical teams and managing vendors in large scale complex in-house systems or Salesforce landscape
  • Expert knowledge and experience across a range of integration technologies including REST APIs, micro services and Salesforce integration technologies
  • Knowledge and experience of architecting, building and operating highly scalable, available, performant and secure solutions
  • Demonstrated experience working in an Agile software development environment
