Rackspace Technical Consultant in United States

Overview & Responsibilities

We are currently looking to recruit an experienced Technical Consultant to perform migration requirements analysis and project-based implementation of Infrastructure & Cloud Hosting Services into Corporate Fortune500 and SME clients.

The role owns technical work-streams within multiple large migration projects for Fortune500 clients across EMEA. You'll engage with clients onsite (although the role can be more office-based, as you see fit) to assess the requirements of the migration, translate these requirements into a migration strategy, which then be executed upon. The role will require understanding of migration methodologies, consultancy and presenting directly to customers.

You'll need to have a strong mix of client-facing (managing workshops and presentations), passion for technology problem-solving and project full life-cycle experience. Specific technology experience with regards to the deliverables isn’t necessary, but a good grounding in Infrastructure technology is highly advantageous, particularly if this includes datacentre and workload migrations.

This role is ideal for someone who's worked in a client-facing technology solutions delivery role, who’s happy to apply their technical brain to solutions and who is happy to get hands-on as required. The role will require good technical analysis, a display of gravitas with clients, someone who can fire-fight on any migration issues with clients, understand bespoke systems issues and who's done so on a project-by-project basis.

Qualifications

  • Client-facing experience with large organisations, ideally blue- chip, but happy to deliver to SMEs
