Job Description

Do you always deliver what you’ve promised? So do we.

At the heart of every great technology solution is great management, always making sure that the project delivers what it set out to do and matches expectations.

About the opportunity

The lifecycle of an Avanade project runs all the way from opportunity and solutioning, through to contract delivery, then eventual closure and operational support.
