  • Contribute to both TTS practice development and the business development process at existing clients, looking for additional opportunities for West Monroe solutions
  • Promote thought leadership in emerging technologies and industry trends; from partnerships to go-to-market offerings and strategy, through to design and implementation

  • Strong experience leading teams and project managing end-to-end solutions, which could include strategy, design, development, testing and training, and/or ad hoc post-close remediation work
  • Excellent organizational, verbal, presentation/facilitation, and written communication skills
  • Professional level certifications preferred – AWS, Azure, Cisco, ITIL, CISSP, etc.
