Title: Data Architect (100% Remote)

Our History:
From our start in 2009, Conexess has established itself in 3 markets, employing nearly 200+ individuals nation-wide. Operating in over 15 states, our client base ranges from Fortune 500/1000 companies, to mid-small range companies. For the majority of the mid-small range companies, we are exclusively used due to our outstanding staffing track record

Who We Are:
Conexess is a full-service staffing firm offering contract, contract-to hire, and direct placements. We have a wide range of recruiting capabilities extending from help desk technicians to CIOs. We are also capable of offering project based work.


Our client is looking to add a Data Architect to their team.  This person will be responsible for developing and deploying architecture, standards, and processes to improve the management of information and data throughout the organization.  Expected to work independently across multiple teams, he or she oversees the expansion of enterprise data as a strategic enabler of goals and objectives.  In this role, the candidate will utilize technology, communication, and leadership skills to manage a multi-platform and hybrid-cloud data environment across the Corporate Payments business.

Our client will allow this person to work 100% remote. We're ideally looking for a candidate who has worked remotely in some capacity in the past, and understands how to manage their time and communication effectively, in that aspect.  Our client has physical locations in the Nashville, TN surrounding area and Atlanta, GA surrounding area.  Travel will be expected about once every other month (or once every couple months) to those locations (company paid); but otherwise, the candidate is able to work 100% remote.  If the candidate happens to live close to either of these locations, they are more than welcome to utilize the office!!
