WHY APPLY?

Are you a PM with history migrating data centers?   Have experience leading transformation, upgrade, and decommissioning of applications?  Then this gig might be for you.

In short, our agent has a multi-year effort to modernize this Fortune 500 client's systems stack.  The work primarily revolves around moving older technologys (Mainframe, Client Server, Web) that are based on-premise into the cloud.  This role would be front-line to the client executive team so notable history working with similar level roles is key (setting KPIs, managing to them, communicating on them, etc.).  Anyone with ITIL background gets a plus. 

So if this sounds like you, APPLY TODAY!!!
