It's this culture, our people, and delivery that come together to make Centric a trusted advisor to local businesses.

Our Louisville business unit is committed to making a positive difference in our community. We regularly use our time and talents outside of work to ignite a passion for the greater good. We're looking for a Project Manager to join our growing team.

  • Consulting experience is strongly preferred. That said, you will also be considered if you have a strong industry background. We like to work in the communities we live in.

  • We want someone who likes to solve problems. Clients don't come to us when the problem is easy. You should enjoy taking on the hard stuff.

  • And because we work with clients, excellent communication skills are important both written and verbal. Translating technical concepts into layman's terms is an essential skill.

  • Last, but not least, you will need to be a solid Data Architect.
