Furthermore, you always make sure you’re keeping up with the latest developments in your field and like to share your insights with the rest of the community.

Does this apply to you; then take the next step in your career and join Accenture. Make a difference and help to deliver well designed, fast and stable IT systems.  We’ll rely on you to provide great user experience to our clients and their end users.
