Do you get excited by all things Business Intelligence, Big Data & Analytics? Are you interested in encouraging other developers in their professional development?

Centric Consulting is hiring a Microsoft Evangelist for our National Data & Analytics practice. In this position, you will split your time between delivering data & analytics solutions for our clients (80% of your time) and engaging the technical community both inside and outside of Centric (20% of the time).

This is a mid-to-senior level full-time opportunity.

What You'll Do as a Microsoft Evangelist

You will bring your Microsoft data & analytics expertise to client engagements, getting hands-on helping them develop and implement technical solutions.

You will assist with sales proposals and presentations, serving as a Microsoft data & analytics domain expert.

You will lead Centric in Azure Data Platform and Cortana Intelligence Suite.

You will help grow the Microsoft community within Centric, via training, hackathons, and other mediums.

You will further strengthen our relationship with Microsoft, positioning us as a trusted partner.

You will develop content for our blog and social media channels. You are also highly encouraged to also share and engage via your own social platform.

You will present at conferences and participate in user groups, showcasing Centric's innovative projects and capabilities.

What You'll Bring

Creating unmatched experiences, for both clients and employees, is what we do. You should revel in doing the unexpected and extraordinary for others.

The fun part about consulting is that no two days are the same. You should have a learning mindset, ready to experience new ideas and situations regularly.

Consulting experience is strongly preferred.

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. You should love interacting with others!

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 Data & Analytics team and other technologists at Centric will give you an amazing support system. You will lean on them daily.

Related, you should be someone with the spirit of an educator and thus gets excited about mentoring and knowledge sharing.

Do you like to travel? Good, because we need someone who likes being on the road. Expect up to 75% travel.

Last, but not least, you will need to be an experienced Software Developer, concentrated in Microsoft data & analytics technologies such as Azure Machine Learning, Azure Data Platform, SQL Server, PowerBI, and Cortana.

Why Centric?

  • Supportive environment – We expect a lot from our Microsoft Evangelist. But you won't be asked to do it alone. You will have the full support of our National Data & Analytics team and everyone at Centric. We love to help people succeed.
  • Special culture – Hands down, the people are the best part of Centric. But you shouldn't take our word on it – check us out on Glassdoor, Facebook or Twitter to get a glimpse inside what makes us different.
  • Network of technology champions – There's no fun in being the only geek in the room. Centric celebrates all things tech. For example, we hold a yearly gathering called Camp I/O. In the vein of TEDx talks, Camp I/O is an opportunity for technology-minded people across Centric to get together and show off what they can do when not constrained by client requirements and platforms. Check out some of the innovative presentations from last year.
  • All-company (paid!) vacation trip – Who doesn't want to go someplace warm in the winter?

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.
