We live our core values and bring them with us in all we do for our clients and community. Our core purpose is simple: every day we strive to provide unmatched customer and employee experiences and foster a culture of respect, diversity, and transparency. It's this culture, our people, and delivery that come together to make Centric a trusted advisor to local businesses. Our Cloud and DevOps team is expanding quickly! As a member of a growing team, you will have the opportunity to help shape our practice by not only participating in client work but also contributing thought leadership both inside and outside Centric Consulting. Our team is a great fit for someone who likes to be both hands-on and dream bigger picture. We're looking for an Azure Cloud Architect to join our growing team. In this role, you will: * Craft and develop Azure Cloud solutions, translating business requirements into scalable, flexible and secure cloud architectures. * Lead design, estimation, planning, and implementation of cloud migrations and deployments. * Build client relationships and participate in business development and proposal work. * Help nurture our Microsoft Azure partnership, identifying ways we can collaborate further. A successful candidate will have the following characteristics: * Ability to create unmatched experiences, for both clients and employees, is what we do. You should revel in doing the unexpected and extraordinary for others. * A learning mindset, ready to experience new ideas and situations regularly. * 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. * Initiative is important. We don't hand hold - you should be comfortable working independently in an entrepreneurial environment. That said, collaboration is equally important. Our Boston team and other [technologists or consultants] at Centric will give you an amazing support system. You will lean on them daily. * Last but not least, you will, of course, need to be a solid Cloud Architect with hands-on experience designing for, and deploying in, an Azure environment. Azure certifications definitely preferred. What makes Centric different? * Special Culture - Our people make us different. We have highly talented, intelligent individuals across a broad variety of disciplines - who are eager to learn from you and share their own expertise. We embrace fresh perspectives and each other. Don't take our word for it - check us out on Glassdoor, Facebook, Twitter or Instagram to get a glimpse inside what makes us different. * Growth opportunities - As a mid-size firm, there is more flexibility when it comes to career paths. Figure out what you want to do and we'll help you figure out how to get there. * Impact - We think of ourselves as a big company with a small company feel - a local player with global reach that combines business, technology and industry expertise. * Unmatched Experiences - We are allowed to be ourselves here. We are encouraged to be human. It's at the root of who we are as a firm and why we're here. * Innovation - We value passion, determination, perseverance, and innovation. We are inspired because we believe in what we are doing and where we are going. * Passion for the greater good - We are steadfast in our devotion to the communities we serve and in actively promoting employee involvement in community improvement projects. Centric believes the best solutions come from diverse teams. We strive to have an environment where everyone has an opportunity to be successful regardless of their race, color, religion, gender, national origin, ancestry, age, disability, military or veteran status, sexual orientation or gender identity.
