Senior Azure Consultant

Last year we joined an elite group of companies that have secure Azure Expert MSP accreditation, making Empired one of only two Australian owned vendors with this certification!
  
At Empired, we are very clear in our strategic intent and mission for our customers, and we’re extremely focused on how these goals and plans will translate to the delivery of value as they undertake the next phase of their IT journeys with us.
  
A modern managed service provider like Empired enables more than ‘run and maintain’. A modern services provider has an adaptable resourcing model to provide targeted value at any point of the lifecycle of an IT application portfolio, platform or system.
  
We believe that Empired plays a role in these journeys as a trusted, single partner who can provide an exceptional run and maintain capability coupled with proven transformational prowess. This is our goal. We use our initiative and innovation alongside an amazing client experience to achieve this goal. In everything we do, and in every project or managed service we undertake, we are helping our customers to achieve Tomorrow’s Advantage, today.
