About IntelliMagic

IntelliMagic’s IT Operation Analytics solutions manage the performance and availability of critical IT resources such as z/OS, enterprise storage and SAN infrastructure. Our solutions perform intelligent analysis of performance and configuration data, leveraging built-in expertise in hardware architecture and throughput capabilities to protect availability. We call this availability intelligence.

With its smart software, the company serves a large number of Fortune 500 corporations as well as numerous listed companies within Europe.

As part of our expansion in the primarily German-speaking region, we are now looking for talented individuals who would like to contribute their high level of specialist expertise in the mainframe environment (z/OS) as a (senior) performance consultant (m/f/d).

IntelliMagic’s solutions not only stand out from the competition because of their technological progress, but above all because of their exceptionally strong and long-term personal relationships with their customers. As a Senior Consultant (m/f/d) you will look after your clientele accordingly, both locally and remotely. The job is to be filled throughout Germany in the home office, including a Germany and occasionally Europe-wide willingness to travel as part of on-site workshops, user group meetings and pre-sales assignments.

We offer you exciting projects and exclusive insights into a select group of world market leaders. You can expect an inspiring work environment where innovative pioneers meet a positive corporate culture. With home office and flexible working hours, family, free time and work are ideally compatible. Your know-how and your performance are not taken for granted, but valued by our clients on a personal level and generously rewarded in the form of an attractive salary package.

If you are looking for a varied job with a lot of freedom, in which your talents are really recognised, valued, used sensibly and actively promoted, then we look forward to receiving your application!
