Job Description

We are Accenture — a global professional services organization, which includes being a vital services partner to the world’s major cloud providers — ServiceNow, AWS, Azure, Google, and others.  Demand for their offerings — and for ours — skyrocketed last year as the Covid-19 pandemic rolled on. Organizations had to grapple with the sudden dispersal of their workforces and supply chains.  

 

To meet that surging demand we consolidated our far-flung cloud-related skill sets into one highly-focused services group, named Accenture Cloud First. It started out last September with 70,000 cloud professionals, a number that’s growing rapidly. (Accenture’s total employee population exceeds 500,000.)  Accenture Cloud First is on a mission that has a $3 billion/three-year investment behind it.

Please note: The safety and well-being of our people continues to be the top priority, and our decisions around travel are informed by government COVID-19 response directives, recommendations from leading health authorities and guidance from a number of infectious disease experts.
