  • Proven customer, project, and escalation management skills and experience.

  • Ability to understand technical aspects and communicate them effectively to stakeholders of various technical abilities. 

  • Demonstrate strong interpersonal and communication skills while working with diverse audiences including highly technical IT professionals, engineers, and program managers.

  • Excellent soft skills with a team player mentality are a must.

  • Excellent written and oral communication skills with presentation experience.
