Steve Cooper

Salesforce Technical Lead

Steve lives for the “Oooh!” moment when a cumbersome business practice becomes elegant through novel thinking about technology and process. Steve has been working in and around the nonprofit world since he was a teenager, but he cut his teeth in the Salesforce ecosystem as an accidental admin with a DC-based nonprofit in early 2011. That’s where he caught a serious case of the Salesforce bug, and he’s been working with the platform ever since. In addition to several years of in-house platform administration and ownership, Steve brings four years of consulting experience to bear, mainly focused on high-visibility projects in the nonprofit vertical. 

Steve holds a B.A. in Literature from Eckerd College and a M.A. in English from the University of South Florida (so, naturally, he works in technology now). He is also a Salesforce Certified Administrator, Salesforce Certified Advanced Administrator, Salesforce Certified Sales Cloud Consultant, and Salesforce Certified App Builder. 

Steve lives in downtown Seattle with his husband and their furry children (one dog, one cat). When he’s not making a client’s Salesforce experience more awesome, you can find him exploring Seattle’s many green spaces, listening to political and technology podcasts, or playing geeky tabletop games with his friends.
