Product Manager, Salesforce.com
After enjoying the windy steppes of Kazakhstan, freezing-cold Siberian winters and endless rains in Seattle, Vladimir settled down in sunny San Francisco where he helps to drive multiple products at Salesforce HQ. He started his career as an engineer working in multiple companies and soon developed a strong interest for cloud technologies. After spending three years at Microsoft working on Sharepoint Online, he joined Salesforce to help to deliver Global Picklists – a 50k IdeaX point idea. Always feeling passionate for customer success, he transitioned to product management, and for the last year was in charge of Custom Metadata Types (with the recent inclusion of Apex MD API), custom objects, custom fields and picklists.
