Who we are: Ensono is a managed service provider head-quartered in the U.S. with offices around the globe. We specialize in large-revenue clients undergoing digital transformation and who seek our objective and trusted partnership to help them operate for today and optimize for tomorrow. Our full-service portfolio is an enviable combination of enterprise hybrid IT services that spans IBM Mainframe, IBMi, Private Cloud, managed Public Clouds, application services, and advisory and consulting services. Some of the world’s leading companies rely on Ensono’s innovative hybrid IT solutions and rich managed services to deliver highly available and cost-optimized infrastructure for their mission-critical business. The mainframe is one of the mission-critical platforms our customers depend on, and Ensono is the #2 mainframe managed services leader in North America, with clients across the globe. Who you are: You are passionate about using your industry and mainframe knowledge and creative skills to imagine, direct and create products. You can think big as well as zoom into the smallest detail with ease. You are energetic, and a quick study. You can make sound decisions without always having complete data, and you always work backward from the customer and market needs. You’ve shipped products many times before with commercial success and are adept at directing and partnering with people, whether directly reporting to you or across the value chain. You are an inclusive and low-ego leader who actively seeks diversity of thought. If this seems like a great fit for you, we have an exciting role to offer as a director of product management in our mainframe managed services business. The role reports directly to the Mainframe Line of Business leader.

An Insider's view of Ensono

What’s the vibe like in the office?

I find the culture to be very open and collaborative. One can be on a call with a customer and ask your technical resource across from you a specific question or run into our CEO in the hallway while grabbing a cup of coffee. We allow feedback to be given and changes to be heard. Leadership constantly finds ways to make it an exciting workplace
