Why work here?

We are an excellent fit for those who relish being at the center of attention! Here, you will not be an invisible part of some "internal IT department", but the very team that earns the revenue of NANKAN.


Work is fast and exciting because you will serve outside customers and deal with multiple technology stacks. The room for growth is plenty. There is little hierarchy, zero politics and a "get things done" mind-set. Work is high grade - many different technologies, many modern products that have to be learnt. Everybody gets a chance to work on several different customer environments, and most team members directly interact with global customers in a peer relationship.

A typical day

For technical roles you'll be spending the majority of the work day connected over VPN to our data centers implementing and managing the environments you are responsible for. You will be expected to build systems from scratch, pick up new technologies, troubleshoot problems and work with vendors on issues. Every day you will make decisions that are best for our customers who trust us to run their entire IT infrastructure.

 

For delivery management roles you'll help interpret requirements from customers and create work breakdown structures. You will communicate continuously with the customers, partners and vendors externally; and coordinate the activities of engineers, operators and subject experts internally. Over time customers will come to consider you as the primary interface into NANKAN and you must be able to work with customers directly with a service mind-set.

 

We are constantly looking for talented people.  We have below jobs open right now.  If one of them is not an exact match, we still invite you to apply since we constantly open new positions.
