    Design. Disrupt. Repeat.

    Be an agent of change on a team committed to achieving client-focused, mission-driven excellence. Steampunk is looking for an experienced Salesforce Senior Architect with an appetite for taking on new challenges.


    Who We Are

    Steampunk is the explosive collision of human-centered design and traditional government contracting. An employee-owned company with a startup mindset and time-tested approaches tailored for the federal government, we’re passionate about creating solutions that are impactful, practical, scalable, and most importantly, that meet our clients’ ever-changing needs.

    At Steampunk, we believe in disrupting the status quo and setting the pace in the ecosystem of government contractors, while repurposing tried-and-true methodologies. We believe in empowering our people to find creative solutions to intractable problems. We believe the best environment in which to grow and thrive is outside our comfort zone.

    While good design makes for a good product, we believe human-centered design makes for an excellent one.


    We also believe effective teams are powered by diverse perspectives, backgrounds, and experiences. To that end, Steampunk is an equal opportunity employer committed to promoting diversity of race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, ethnicity, national origin, disability status, and protected veteran status, amongst our ranks.  Additionally, we participate in the E-Verify program.
