Required Skills & Experience

  • 10 years+ of IT management experience.

  • Experience with large transformation projects, global teams, and managing flexibly through different timezones (it’s not a 9-5 job).
  • Experience with budgeting, cost management, and vendor management.
  • ERP architecture experience – Microsoft Dynamics 365 is a clear preference but experience with Infor, SAP or Oracle might work as well.
  • Experience with a major ERP system, operationally as well as from a business process perspective.
  • Experience with financial processes related to ERP.
  • Some degree of technical experience from either an IT or IT management background.
