Job Description

We have an immediate Cloud Implementation Manager contract opportunity with our Atlanta based Fortune 500 client. This role will be responsible for the full life cycle of a migration from On-Premises to an IaaS Cloud environment.  This is a long-term contract that will involve transforming  the IT environment for a major Atlanta company. ​​​​​​​ Interested candidates must sit on-site (zip code is 30339) and local Atlanta consultants preferred.  The target rate is $80-$95/hour. 

Required Skills and Experience:
  • This is a true PM position that will be focused on the client's backlog of cloud based projects. 
  • The client is looking for someone who can manage multiple small projects at once, as opposed to a large singular project.

  • The ideal candidate will have heavy IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) and/or PaaS (Platform as a Service) experience, as well as a strong Infrastructure Project Management background (servers, routers, network security, etc.).

  • Delivering successful projects within ITSM environments. 
  • Strong understanding of Cloud concepts in IaaS, PaaS and SaaS environments.
  • Experience managing at least one large-scale migration from On-Prem data centers to IaaS Cloud environment. Azure Cloud IaaS migrations a major plus, however other providers will be considered.
