Job Description

Do you love living in the Cloud? So do we.

You’re committed to the Cloud and helping clients by spotting opportunities and giving them the tools and processes that will transform their business.

About you

You’re a natural communicator and trusted technology advisor who wants to help shape your Cloud community. Your work enables people to get the very best out of the Cloud, and your great interpersonal and communication skills help technical and non-technical clients engage with often complex information.

About the role

As a Microsoft Teams Senior Consultant, you build modern and powerful applications, guiding your clients on the architecture and implementation of sophisticated software applications.

You collaborate with your colleagues locally and globally to make full use of their knowledge and experience to develop effective strategies and solutions. You’ve got good understanding of business, too, and you understand the finances of a project.

You are likely to have a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, MIS, Information Technology or similar. An equivalent combination of education and experience may be suitable. You also have at least two to four years of experience in building Skype for business, Teams, conferencing, voice and telephony systems.
