95/hr Mainframe Architect. 3+ Months. 75% Telecommute Contract. Dearborn, MI. (L-3766) (B)

WHY APPLY?

Are you a solution architect focused on Mainframe solutions?  Have a history of migrating MF solutions from one platform to another?  Then this gig might be of interest to you.

In short, our agent is the prime on a major migration effort of existing mainframe systems to a lower cost platform.   So someone coming from past work in that space is key.  Ideal candidate will have 10+ years in MF architecture around JCL, COBOL, DB2, Easytrieve, IMS, CICS, etc.   You can see the full list of target skills/technologies in the attribute list below.

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

(during COVID the team will be working remotely but once deemed appropriate work may resume onsite in Dearborn at which time candidates need to be ready to potentially be onsite at their cost)
