The ideal candidate will be located in the Boston, Chicago, Detroit, Minneapolis, or New York metro areas. Secondary consideration may be given to candidates located in Atlanta, Bellevue (WA.), Dallas, Denver, Houston, Los Angeles, Salt Lake City, San Diego, San Francisco, San Jose, Seattle, and Washington DC metro areas. Tertiary consideration may be given to candidates residing anywhere else in the US, within a tolerable commute to a major airport.

Being a major contributor to OCG’s strategy, the architect provides guidance and structure to maintain and evolve our delivery competency, evangelizes our technical brand and expertise in the marketplace, influences partner product and positioning decisions, and sets the technical direction for the company.
On the tactical side, the architect leverages their breadth of experience with current and emerging technologies to help clients develop a technology strategy and road map and then in executing on that road map, the architect ensures multiple concurrent engagements are effectively scoped, resourced, delivered, and closed.
Being fully independent, the architect proactively identifies and diffuses situations that could lead to execution risks, is able to triage and effectively resolve delivery issues as they are encountered, and analyzes day-to-day delivery experiences to drive improvements across the practice.
Skills and Experience Required
The Architect will have a breadth of deep technical skills with a strong Microsoft bias, along with advanced certifications (at least one of: MCSE, MCITP, CISSP). Experience with appropriate technologies, including those that compete with Microsoft is essential – not all architects will cover all technologies of course, but experience in large-enterprise environments with demonstrated architecture, engineering, and operations skills in Active Directory, FIM Sync, and Azure Active Directory are critical.
While OCG looks for leaders in every role, the architect leads from the front – leadership and influence skills are critical. The architect is highly customer-oriented, has great communication skills (written, verbal, presentation, influence), follows established process, deals extremely well with ambiguity, effectively mentors others, and has a high level of personal ambition and initiative to help them stand out in a peer group of the best in the business. The architect must have at least 10 years of experience architecting/engineering/supporting related technologies in a large-scale enterprise environment.
Additional skills desired in an ideal architect include technical breadth and/or depth in related technologies, as well as the FIM Portal, FIM workflow development, Roles Based Access Control, Active Directory Federation Service, Azure Multifactor Authentication, Azure Rights Management, Intune, Systems Center Configuration Manager, Systems Center Operations Manager, Systems Center Service Manager, Office 365, Dirsync, FIM CM, Public Key Infrastructure, C#, and VB. Advanced project management skills, additional Microsoft and security-industry certifications, and a B.S./M.S. in Computer Science (or other related field of study) are also highly desired.

Secondary consideration may be given to candidates located in Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Detroit, Houston, Minneapolis, Salt Lake City, San Diego, and San Francisco metro areas.

A consultant is primarily responsible for successful execution of an integration engagement, working directly with clients individually, or as part of a larger team. In addition to delivering successful engagements, the consultant identifies standardization and improvement opportunities, supports peers as they encounter delivery obstacles, and meets maintenance and support SLAs – all while effectively communicating status, issues, and risks. Additionally, this individual provides support to sales during qualification and scoping of engagements, delivers instructor-led training, contributes to product/service engineering efforts, and identifies other opportunities to add value during client engagements.
The consultant has deep technical competencies, with an enterprise perspective, in a number of products OCG specializes in. This person understands what the product can do out of the box, is able to perform installations and complex custom configurations – and demonstrate product functionality, aligned to customer need. The ideal candidate also has a deep, demonstrated track record in troubleshooting complex product issues and executing test plans related to integration of these technologies.
The consultant understands the value proposition of the products and OCG’s services in this space and makes recommendations – while nurturing an ongoing customer relationship by helping them realize the value of their investment.
The consultant must make timely use of technical reference resources to extend their knowledge as required. Unlike in some environments, the consultant does not have luxury of focusing exclusively on a set of tools or technologies – a willingness to step outside of their comfort-zone to learn new technologies and approaches is essential.
Skills and experience required
The Consultant will have technical skills with a strong Microsoft bias, along with advanced certifications (at least one of: MCSE, MCITP, CISSP). Experience with appropriate technologies is essential – not all consultants will cover all technologies of course, but competent skills in Active Directory, FIM Sync, and Azure Active Directory are critical.
The Consultant must be highly customer-oriented, have great communication skills (written, verbal, presentation, influence), follow established process, deal well with ambiguity, be a fast learner, and have a high level of personal ambition and initiative to help them stand out in a peer group of the best in the business. The Consultant must have at least 5 years of experience engineering/supporting related technologies in a large enterprise environment, or as a consultant integrating these technologies into similar environments.
Additional skills desired in an ideal consultant include technical breadth and/or depth in related non-Microsoft technologies, as well as the FIM Portal, FIM workflow development, Roles Based Access Control, Active Directory Federation Service, Azure Multi-factor Authentication, Azure Rights Management, Intune, Systems Center Configuration Manager, Systems Center Operations Manager, Systems Center Service Manager, Office 365, Dirsync, FIM CM, Public Key Infrastructure, C#, and VB. Project management skills, additional Microsoft and security-industry certifications, and a B.S. in Computer Science (or other related field of study) are also highly desired.
