We tackle big projects like building data integrations between 14 different systems using Linux and Python hosted on Azure, creating contract processing automation within Salesforce, building custom revenue commission split tracking tools, data warehousing, and more.

Why Cerity Partners? 
We have a great remote culture in the Shared Services Technology org. All our team members are fully remote, and we believe that people do their best work when they have a positive culture, work-life balance, and the flexibility to take the time off they need to, when they need to. With that flexibility we look for people who thrive in a remote environment and who understand that there is an enhanced level of communication and collaboration required through Teams, Confluence, Asana and other tools that we leverage to stay in touch. We are not async (yet) and do most of our work in the CST time-zone, but we welcome team members who want to help us continue to move in that direction.
