additional info added:
The candidate does not need to have extensive knowledge of email nor email migrations for this assignment, however, it is helpful if they have IT project experience to understand the technical concepts, issues and risks related to the project
Interpersonal skills are a must. Candidate will be working as a liaison between the technical team and the users being migrated so that we can explain to the mechanics of the migration plan to the users and to provide the technical team with the information they need from the users to execute the migration
Data analysis skills are needed to do User Acceptance Testing and eventually use a migration scheduling tool that is being developed specifically for this project. The tool will be a Lotus Notes DB that receives daily feeds from various sources (HR, security, mailbox data,etc.) and creates a migration schedule based on specific criteria.
Lastly, this project requires a candidate willing and able to work evenings and weekends from July-December. We have at least 25 weeks of migrations to do, and the current plan is for this person to be the lead coordinator every other week (with me taking the alternate weeks). Although work-from-home flexibility will be granted on evenings and weekends, candidate will need to work on-site in Somerset office during the week.
