ScaleUp Architects is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping underrepresented groups become Salesforce Architects.

Who We Are

Since becoming a Certified Technical Architect, Melissa Shepard noticed a lack of women and other underrepresented groups in architecture at her various meet-ups and community events. Since then, she has joined up with other CTA’s and Salesforce Architects to create a programme providing support, mentorship, and coaching to those who would otherwise not have such avenues of support.

ScaleUp Architects is adding another layer of learning and support on top of the successful Architect Ohana Slack channel. We will focus on building an architect mindset to upskill candidates from Application Architect onwards. The journey may be straight up to the top of the CTA pyramid, but it may also lead to System Architect, B2B Solution Architect, B2C Solution Architect or anywhere in between!


Architect Candidates

There is no cost for this program, but you should be aware and ready for the time investment to be successful before committing to the program. Your success is our success and it does take work!

Volunteer Coaches

If you are an architect of any type and looking for a way to give back to the community, let us know! We’ll be looking for more like-minded individuals to join our mission as the program develops as coaches and mentors.
