Role Overview:

Sensei has three main ways that we support value delivery to clients; Consulting (client projects), Product Development (IP and software products that we develop) and Client Care (ongoing support). This role is part of the Consulting team.

You’ll be joining a tight-knit local team, and we expect you to dive in, feet first, and own a lot of the really hard technical stuff on client-facing engagements.

The Microsoft Power Platform Developer brings with them a history of consultancy experience, appropriate certifications and other training, problem-solving techniques, organisational and time management skills. You will have one eye on your own personal effectiveness and productivity, aiming for maximum engagement with clients, while also seeking out appropriate professional development opportunities. 

The ideal candidate would be experienced in developing and delivering high quality solutions to clients with a proven technical understanding in Microsoft development and platforms, particularly around the Power Platform, but also SharePoint, Project Server/Online, Office 365 and Dynamics 365. It requires a well-rounded professional with a focus on client satisfaction, excellent communication skills, and thirst for knowing the technical ins and outs of the products we provide to our clients.

  • Demonstrate a passion for developing Microsoft solutions, particularly those based on the Office 365, Project Online, Project for the Web, or Dynamics 365 platforms.
  • Work with a variety of different clients concurrently across numerous projects and have the flexibility to move between projects based on changing demands and deadlines.
  • Provide technical advice and guidance to clients and have the ability to effectively talk through technical issues to non-technical people.
  • Provide advice on technical aspects of solution development and integration (including requests for changes, deviations from specifications, etc.) and ensure that relevant technical strategies, policies, standards and practices are applied correctly.
  • Build and maintain effective and constructive relationships with our clients, partners and staff.
