Who we are looking for:

All backgrounds will always be considered and experience here is far more important, but we’re thinking some relevant MS D365 / Power Platform Certifications would be helpful.

Required Experience: 

  • Pre-sales engagement including technology evangelism, demonstration, adoption and other early opportunity activities such as bid-response writing
  • Well-rounded stakeholder management experience, able to hold the attention of a room full of execs as easily as an amphitheatre full of front-line staff
  • Acting as a role model to others within the Solutions team when it comes to designing systems and processes that work to exceed the user’s need within the user’s budget
  • Directing business and technical environment change safely and effectively, with the support of the project office

  • Technical oversight including close review of documentation, designs and implemented solutions alike, for solution assurance down to code level
  • Creating clear and effective documentation across multiple channels
  • Using a hands-on approach to ensuring timescales are met

  • Office 365 portfolio implementation inc. AzureAD
  • Insightful entity architecture including solid MS SQL
  • Source control appreciation, esp. GIT

We’re also looking for people that fit how we work, which is something like; 

  • happiest working under their own direction, but fully supported when needed

  • Awesome Environment– all of our cloudThing’ers will tell you that we foster an easy going environment, are experts at what we do and care deeply about what we work on – that’s in large part because the company was started specifically to find a way for people to take more enjoyment from their work.
