Providence Health & Services Senior Engineering Program Manager - IT Hosting in Renton, Washington


Providence St. Joseph Health is calling a Senior Engineering Program Manager - IT Hosting to our location in Renton, WA; Redmond, WA; Portland, OR; Irvine, CA or Beaverton, OR.

Are you excited about the prospect of delivering a modern healthcare experience? Are you looking for a role where you’re in the driver’s seat leading a number of complex, high-visibility projects using your experience as a seasoned infrastructure program manager? Providence Cloud Engineering & Operations (CEO) is looking for Program Managers to join our growing team.
