Job Description

[s]Cube Inc. is a Technology Services company located in Schenectady, New York. [s]Cube Inc. provides technical delivery in the areas of Land Management, Licensing, Permitting, Case Management, Code Enforcement, and Asset Management. The [s]Cube team is seasoned in innovative IT delivery and is comprised of project/delivery managers, business architects, technical architects, agile developers, and cloud specialists.

The Sr. Technical Consultant position will work with our software delivery team to implement the Accela Automation Software platform for [s]Cube clients across the country. The position will set, drive and document client requirements meetings, and will consult with clients on the implementation of appropriate workflows and automations, relying on experience and on Best Practice Templates. The Consultant will document required deliverables in a detailed work tracking system and work in this system daily to provide updates and work details. Projects are driven out of this tool using an Agile/Scrum based approach.

Daily client meetings, regular check-ins and status reports, in-depth client requirements discussions, detailed user acceptance testing meetings, are all part of the day-to-day activities required in the position. Up to 50% travel may be required based on client projects and needs.

The successful Consultant is engaged with clients daily, proactively driving the project, understanding client needs and expectations and driving technical delivery teams to meet or exceed those expectations, while escalating for assistance when required.
