  • Prior application support experience including release management, governance and/or change management, preferred
  • Applications and solution consulting experience with a well-regarded firm, ideally combined with time spent managing and implementing software to understand operational nuances
  • Strong technical capabilities coupled with the ability to clearly communicate the business value and bottom-line impacts of technology decisions to a non-technical audience
