Grab this opportunity to be part of an exciting and innovative initiative transforming the way the BC Public Service implements IT!
At Enterprise Design Services, we believe in pursuing a better way of doing things. We ask questions and stay curious. How can we optimize the experience of using the Office of the Chief Information Officer’s (OCIO) services? What if we imagined a better way to work and then actually built it with our clients? These are the kinds of questions we explore. With our partners we’re imagining better ways of supporting government’s journey towards a digital enterprise. We’re at the center of the transformation. We’re about the people as well as the technology, recognizing that great teams and organizations enabled with great tech can achieve amazing things.
