Technology Consultant, Platforms & Innovation

Description

Conduent is the world's largest provider of diversified business process services with leading capabilities in transaction processing, automation, analytics and constituent experience. We work with both government and commercial customers in assisting them to deliver quality services to the people they serve.

Technology Consultant, Platforms & Innovation

The Platforms & Innovation team develop software for the Conduent Human Resource Services Consulting business in the US, Canada and Europe. The Technology Consultant will be responsible for meeting business requirements on a portfolio of mostly web applications and services but could include desktop applications and Windows services.

The majority of the portfolio is built using Microsoft technologies such as C#.NET and SQL Server with developers and support personnel located in different offices within several countries around the world, so collaboration and communication skills are essential.

The position involves some or all of the skills below;

  • project management including monitoring, assigning and prioritising work,

  • personnel supervision including reporting and mentoring,

  • business analysis and problem-solving skills including communicating solutions effectively,

  • satisfying documentation and administration requirements within the team,

  • overseeing or participating in solution architectural decisions and reviewing technical specifications,

  • contributing to product management and innovation initiative discussions and presentations,

  • covering other team member absences when necessary,

  • other technology-related work as required.

Communication will be required both technically and in layman’s terms to different audiences globally. Product development collaboration/team-work is essential to succeed in the role. Day to day activities involve working within the internal P&I team spread across locations, with other global IT teams, and with clients, vendors and business departments in countries where we operate.

The role of the Technology Consultant in the P&I team would ideally suit someone already working in a similar role of satisfying business and customer requirements globally, overseeing or contributing to multiple projects, and working with distributed teams. However, any previous experience using technology to collaborate as a business analyst, technology consultant or product manager on projects where team members are spread throughout multiple locations would be very helpful.
