This episode’s guest is Johann Furmann from Berlin. What I love about his Salesforce Story is that he started as an Accidental Salesforce Admin and is now a Certified Technical Architect and has only relatively recently started learning to code on the platform in depth. He is living proof that you don’t have to be a really incredible coder on the platform to become a Certified Architect. He works with clients across the world to help support and architect their salesforce implementations following industry standards and best practices and also now builds apps on the Salesforce platform to help Salesforce admins at

At Salesforce Posse, we interview influencers in the Salesforce ecosystem so that we can gain a better understanding of how to excel in a career path from a Salesforce Admin or Developer to an Architect.

Johann is one of a growing number of people that are freelancing and carving out a niche for themselves and working for clients across the globe. We talked about if Admins are Architects, Developing on the salesforce platform, and how he sees his role as an architect.
