We have extensive expertise in Google Cloud technologies, and deliver our magic through Data and AI, as well as modernisation of applications and workspaces.

We celebrate diversity, nurture talent from within and do the right thing for our customers. Take a look at our values and come join us.

You will be the face of our modernisation capabilities, internally as well as externally, and should be able to articulate our proposition to the different audiences ensuring we’re the right partner for them. This will happen both with our customers and prospects as well as Google. You will be working in a growth environment which will provide enormous potential for personal growth in the next few years.

  • You will provide oversight to all modernisation projects ensuring customer success and gather feedback to iterate on your product strategy.
