Are you looking for an opportunity to be the hero by working shoulder to shoulder with customers to solve their problems? Do you enjoy work that offers variety every day? Do you like working with the latest technology and cyber security? If so, this role with eSudo is for you!

Your day starts with a phone call or an online request for your services from one of eSudo’s many clients. Sometimes you are a problem solver, verifying what’s happening versus what should happen, diagnosing the cause of the issue, and identifying and implementing the fix. Other times, you are helping create new opportunities for improved effectiveness in business, thus delivering very high value. Quite often, this involves learning new systems and software, and stitching it into the present systems so the right information can be delivered where it can best be used to make the right decisions at the right time. This is what provides high value to the customer!
