  • Engage with partners and onshore, offshore and near-shore colleagues

Your skills

You are at home with enterprise technology and your business acumen means you understand what’s involved in bringing a software development project to successful conclusion.
You’ve got great spoken and written communication skills, and your customer-oriented attitude means you’re comfortable presenting to clients.

Your skills and experience include:
  • Basic knowledge of contract terms
  • Background in customer expectations management
