John Bratt

Salesforce Technical Architect

“I love working with 10K! They match me with great projects and have built a community full of the Salesforce ecosystem’s finest. ”

Favorite adventure: I’m a huge baseball fan and try to get to as many ballparks as possible.

What was your first “ah-ha!” moment before going independent in the Salesforce ecosystem?

Being independent allows me to choose projects where I can use my creativity to solve complex problems. Over the years, I have worked on many projects for some of the largest companies. I have created brand-new solutions, and I have replaced aging systems. 

My “ah-ha” moment happened while working on another like-for-like data collection project. I realized that I didn’t need to work on cookie-cutter types of assignments that didn’t get me excited.

I love working with emerging technologies to create innovative solutions, and I have proven to be good at it. I’m always trying to learn new things and apply them to real-world business situations. Being an independent consultant allows me to do the work I love and has totally leveled up my Salesforce career. 

How does working with 10K let you focus on the work you love?

10K understands my skill set and knows the types of projects that are exciting to me. The 10K project matching system finds opportunities that will challenge me and set me up for success.

As an entrepreneur, there is never enough time to market my skills (and I don’t think anybody loves managing invoices and paperwork.) 10K helps me accomplish day-to-day business tasks so I can focus on project work.

How does working with 10K help you build your business?

The 10K brand brings name recognition and credibility, which leads to high-quality projects. My Salesforce partner consultancy Practical Algorithm, Inc., leverages the 10K brand to keep our pipeline full of awesome opportunities vetted by the 10K leadership team.

How has 10K shaped your career? 

10K acts like a business partner by managing the business development and overhead tasks I’m not as strong at. Working with them makes me confident that I made the correct decision to become an entrepreneur. 

I’ve always known my technical skills are valuable to many enterprises. With 10K’s help, I can now focus on creating next-generation solutions with consulting projects and spend more time growing our ISV products. Basically, partnering with 10K allows me to have more fun!
