About Salesforce

We’re Salesforce, the Customer Company, inspiring the future of business with AI+ Data +CRM. Leading with our core values, we help companies across every industry blaze new trails and connect with customers in a whole new way. And, we empower you to be a Trailblazer, too — driving your performance and career growth, charting new paths, and improving the state of the world. If you believe in business as the greatest platform for change and in companies doing well and doing good– you’ve come to the right place.

Role Description

Emphasizing Global Accessibility: Inclusivity drives ethical web app development. Non-compliant sites risk exclusion from a $1.2 trillion market. WCAG 2.1's prominence in global accessibility lawsuits, mandated by European and U.S. governments and advocated in APAC, reflects its importance.

As part of the WCAG Warriors team, we spearhead web component development, ensuring WCAG compliance at the platform level. Serving as the WCAG lead, we steer web component initiatives to meet accessibility standards and tackle emerging WCAG issues. We advocate for AI integration, leveraging AI to streamline accessibility issue detection, triage, and resolution, adapting to evolving accessibility needs.

Your Impact

As a member of the WCAG Warriors team, your contributions will advance the Lightning platform. Collaborating with the User Experience team and internal developers, you'll ensure WCAG compliance and advocate for AI integration to streamline accessibility issue resolution.

Responsibilities extend beyond component development to include spec reviews for new and existing components, ensuring consistent practices in Accessibility. Reviewing changes to components within and outside the team ensures quality and alignment with standards. Encouraging teams to leverage Base Components reduces platform liability. The team actively participates in documentation updates.

Work is primarily conducted through GitHub pull requests and peer reviews, with Inner Source pull requests managed for contributions to the Base Component library. Join the WCAG Warrior team for an opportunity to drive innovative UI technologies forward
