At Perficient, we encourage you to be your true self. We’re in the business of creating genuine connections that truly matter, with experiences that count for both colleagues and clients, and being your true self is a first step to establishing these relationships. Colleague Chris Kulish, a Salesforce Technical Architect, acknowledges and appreciates the opportunity he’s given to make these authentic connections.
We want to tell the stories of the people who make Perficient what it is today. Below, Chris offers some insight into his true self and interests outside of work, but also elaborates on his role and how he’s able to create these relationships through analysis, understanding, collaboration, and driving results.
Describe your job. How do you make a difference for our clients?
As a technical architect with the Salesforce BU, I spend my days understanding our client’s business and technical challenges, and then collaborate with them on how they can leverage Salesforce to best conquer them. Not only is the role client facing, but it also involves working with the technical team during implementation to overcome challenges and solve problems unique to the Salesforce platform.
Do you have a favorite movie or TV series?
When it comes to movies, books, comics, TV, or games, I enjoy exploring the “Star Wars” universe and being entertained by the stories in it. While I’m a Rebel at heart, I always thought the Empire had the cooler looking ships and vehicles. The lumbering AT-ATs, behemoth Star Destroyers, and stealthy TIE Interceptors are some of my favorites. Boba Fett and the rest of the bounty hunters were some of my favorite characters. Again, Boba Fett looked the coolest of them all, and his reputation and air of mystery just made him cooler. “The Mandalorian” is some of the best Star Wars storytelling ever made.

What are some activities you enjoy doing in your free time?
I enjoy playing video games with my boys and having a movie or board game night with the whole family. When I’m not doing that, I like to play tabletop games and paint the miniature game pieces. Specifically, I play a “Star Wars”-themed game called Legion which puts one player’s army against another player’s army. I’m also slowly learning to timber frame with the hopes of building a cabin at our lake in the future.
What is some career advice that has helped you?
The four things I’ve learned throughout my career are:
1) Never stop learning
2) Do great work
3) Work with great people
4) Work with great leaders
Work is more fun when it’s with great people, and great leaders recognize and reward great work. Continuing to learn allows you to do your best work.
What do you hope to accomplish in your work at Perficient?
I hope to have a positive impact on my team members and clients. I hope that long after the dust settles on our projects, they can look back at the time we spent together and know I gave my best, appreciated the effort, and enjoyed their time working with me.
