Where else can you work alongside talented people, develop a rewarding career and create impactful tools for some of the world’s most successful and socially responsible nonprofits?

At Blackbaud we have it all: a growing, fast-paced software business, an environment where you can thrive professionally and the everyday reward of knowing that you’re part of a community that’s enabling meaningful change.
The Internet Solutions Consultant role will be a combination of project coordinating and consulting. Project Coordinators are responsible for staffing, scheduling, and project portfolio management for solutions that involve Blackbaud’s NetCommunity offerings. The Project Coordinator handles day-to-day activities that involve project timelines and reporting, resource tracking and scheduling and issue resolution. Project Coordinators work with developers and clients to ensure the successful outcome of their projects. This individual must be well organized and have excellent communication skills in order to make the relationship between Client and Internal project staff as cohesive as possible. A strong understanding of revenue recognition, project timelines and processes is a must. Once a solid foundation has been built in coordinating, this individual would make a transition to consulting.
Internet Solutions Consultants are responsible for partnering with Blackbaud's clients to develop solutions for online communication and efficiently managing information. In this capacity, Internet Solutions Consultants must understand the role of technology in an organization's operations, as well as be able to articulate the value of Blackbaud's solutions to both system users and executives.
