You will ensure our team lives by project budgets and timelines. Once projects begin, you will manage teams of subject matter experts to diagnose and troubleshoot technical and operational issues, ensure proper solutions are designed, validate solutions with our clients, and support follow up on through on recommended optimization plans with our clients.
