Overview

David-Kenneth Group is seeking to add a qualified Senior Communication Specialist to its team of experienced data center migration professionals.  David-Kenneth Group specializes in data center transformations, and our core competency is data center migrations.  Due to high demand for our services, we are seeking to add a communication specialist to our team. 

 

Our typical engagements are relocations, mergers, consolidations, and modernizations lasting anywhere from 6 to 18 months.  Data center migration projects are mission-critical and come with inherent risks.  The qualified candidate must have previous experience in the IT services industry.  Experience with data center migrations, consolidations, and/or relocations is a plus.  The candidate must be a proactive team player with a dynamic personality comfortable working in highly available, fast-paced, client-intensive environments.

Responsibilities

The person in this role will provide communications, documentation, editing, and overall as-needed support for project planning and management, development, and implementation.  You will be responsible for understanding a client’s dynamic needs and translating highly technical information into digestible communication and documentation for the client.  The candidate must be independent, proactive, and comfortable working in small teams with similarly elite personnel. 

 

The ideal candidate must be able to demonstrate a broad understanding of the communication discipline and technical documentation needs and to independently analyze and design tailored communication plans and deliverables.  This is not a position for which you will be trained.
