Job Description:

What you'll be doing...

We work with lots of suppliers for equipment, construction, software licenses, to maintenance and the Cloud---and each relationship requires a contract that protects us both.

Working well with others of varied backgrounds and experiences comes easy to you-and you seek to understand their interests and motivations to help create the best mutual outcomes.
