72.50/hr+exp Exchange/O365 Senior Engineer. 2+ Months. Contract. Houston, TX. (L-3349) (C)


Are you an exchange / O365 senior engineer?  Capable of coming into mid-sized clients and helping them resolve issues with existing setups?  Then this gig might be of interest to you.

In short, our agent has a client that currently has some issues with a failed migration to O365.  So they are looking for a senior engineer to come in and assess what needs to be done (so duration could go much longer than 2 months if the candidate is the right fit).  Prior to the migration attempt they were on Exchange 2016.  One of the biggest issues with the migration was around Calendar Sync -- so if your candidate has history with that its a double bonus.

If that sounds like you, APPLY TODAY!!!

sidenote -- client prefers local candidate but if non-local candidate is best option expenses will be covered.

    01/16/19 19:46 PM . Tim Bauer. Closing this. Hiring manager confirms they have a guy (not ours) that offer is out to (supposed to start Monday). We'll reopen if that falls through.

    01/15/19 15:07 PM . Tim Bauer. Move this back to active per client. They have confirmed candidates MUST be currently local to area. Key skill is o365 so resume needs to reflect a focus there.

    01/15/19 15:06 PM . Tim Bauer. Status changed to 1-Active

    01/15/19 14:59 PM . Tim Bauer. Client tables our submission. Confirms they are wanting someone currently local (no relo's).

    01/10/19 15:23 PM . Tim Bauer. Agent is screening our candidate tomorrow. So we'll see how that plays out to assess if we do more submissions.

    01/09/19 17:58 PM . Tim Bauer. Status changed to WFF

    01/09/19 17:58 PM . Tim Bauer. Shared a non-local candidate to the client today. 5+ years doing solely MSFT Exchange/AD/o365 consulting. So we'll need to similar with a currently local candidate to submit another (otherwise we'll hold on this). Hiring manager just confirmed that there is six others submitted (so 7 with ours) at this point.
