Ensono is a managed service provider head-quartered in the U.S. with offices around the globe. 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. We specialize in large-revenue clients who are undergoing digital transformation and seek our objective and trusted partnership to help them operate for today and optimize for tomorrow. Today, Ensono is the #2 Mainframe managed services provider in the United States, with rapid double-digit revenue growth and an ever-growing list of well-known clients in both private and public sectors who depend on the superpowers of the mainframe for their mission-critical applications that power their revenue.

You will report directly to the Global Line of Business Leader and collaborate with a guild of other product managers.

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
