Overview of Your Role

We are looking for an experienced, capable Project Manager to join our team. You need to be process oriented, organized, responsible and have a strong technical aptitude.

Our ideal candidate will have proven experience in technical implementation projects and endpoint migrations in both the commercial and government sectors.
