Overview

Perficient

 

At Perficient you’ll deliver high level business solutions and mission critical technology to Fortune 500 companies and some of the most recognized brands on the planet. And you’ll do it with the help of cutting-edge technologies, thanks to our close partnerships with the world’s biggest vendors. Our network of offices across North America, as well as locations in India and China, will give you the opportunity to spread your wings, too. 

 

We’re proud to be publicly recognized as a “Top Workplace” year after year. This is due, in no small part, to our entrepreneurial attitude and collaborative spirit that sets us apart and keeps our colleagues impassioned, driven, and fulfilled.

 

Our Team and “How” we best serve our Clients

 

Our talented team is comprised of professionals with diverse industry experience and expertise. We share the same commitment for deep investment and creative engagement in our client’s long-term success. This fundamental value enables our firm to deliver “Consulting Reimagined.” 


The expertise and backgrounds of our team enables us to take on any level of project — from start to finish. We recruit, attract and retain leaders who deliver a specific objective ensuring alignment to business strategy and value. We dedicate ourselves to the extra effort required to establish the right cultural fit between our team and clients, ensuring all project stakeholders attain professional and personal success.


Our clients’ vision is our focus. We understand the key risks to their vision and help unlock opportunities by leveraging their strengths and capabilities. We employ an enterprise wide approach by interfacing with all levels of an organization to thoroughly understand circumstances and identify creative solutions. 


All too often, consulting firms provide the client with just the "what" and overlook or omit the "how." Without understanding the "how," organizations are unlikely to capture the full benefit of their investment. When we complete a project, we ensure our clients are equipped with the knowledge and capability to leverage their new solution in order to grow and succeed on their own.

 

Perficient currently has a career opportunity for a Project Manager / Consultant in our St. Louis, MO office.
