Ensono – Why Work For Us?


At Ensono, we provide managed services and solutions for business critical systems across data centers, mainframe and legacy systems, through to public cloud, powered by close working relationships with key partners including AWS, Microsoft and IBM.  We offer a services portfolio built around what our clients need today yet optimizing for the future led by our consulting and advisory services.

But, what truly defines us, is our clients.  The vast majority of Ensono’s clients are large enterprises - we have nearly 200 clients driving our revenue of $600M. This tells you we have deep, strategic relationships with them.

Our clients stay with us, because we have an incredible culture born out of a sense of purpose which is why we have been in the "Sunday Times top 100 companies to work for" for six years.

So the question for our clients really is where do they need to be in the next three years?  How will technology underpin their business operations and transform the way they operate?  And how quickly do they need to get there?  

And the question for you...do you want to be on the leading edge of innovation driving that transformation with our clients?  If yes, then click on the careers tab and search for open positions to join the Ensono team today.

Our purpose and values are the foundation of our future at Ensono. They give us common language to describe why we’re here, where we’re going and how we’ll get there.

Our purpose: To be a relentless ally, disrupting the status quo and unleashing our clients to do great things.

Values: Whether providing unprecedented solutions for clients or collaborating with each other to make unexpected connections, our team of experts exhibit these core values across every endeavor:

HONESTY: We’re transparent and accountable.

RELIABILITY: We deliver on our promises.

COLLABORATION: We thrive as a team.

CURIOSITY: We relentlessly innovate on behalf of our clients.

PASSION: We love what we do and share our enthusiasm.

I couldn’t be more proud of what our team has accomplished since our launch in January 2016. Our mission to deliver technology services that help clients to be great at what they do continues to drive our business and shapes the way we work with our clients, partners and associates. In a short amount of time we’ve made significant strides in growing our new brand, as evidence by our growth from less than $200 million in revenue in 2015 to more than $600 million today.  During the same period, we have grown our associate base from 650 people primarily in the United States to more than 2,100 associates across the world. undefined

Transform and Innovate
We continue to grow our client base and diversify into new industries. As we speak with clients and prospective clients, cloud is in every conversation right alongside the discussion around optimizing traditional infrastructure solutions.  Companies are looking for ways to not only address the aging workforce and better control escalating software costs, but ways to transform and modernize their business. We are leading those transformative discussions and paving new ways for our clients to deliver an even better experience for their own customers.  
  

Our associates have done an incredible job delivering technology solutions reliably and collaboratively, and are driven by the excitement to innovate. If this sounds like a great environment to you, we'd love to hear from you.

- Jeff VonDeylen, Chief Executive Officer


Ensono collaborates with its clients to deliver progressive IT solutions to help them operate their infrastructure for today and optimize it for tomorrow. We specialize in supporting mission-critical workloads for the world’s most successful companies. Ensono works across all platforms – mainframe to cloud, and everything in between. 

Mainframe and Midrange Services
Our Mainframe as a Service offerings are customized to seamlessly integrate with a client's operations, whether they are looking to modernize a legacy mainframe infrastructure or seeking to outsource mainframe hosting. We provide the high-touch technical and operational support services that allow our clients to do a lot more with less. 

Managed Infrastructure
We help clients transform their infrastructure and reduce TCO while increasing agility, availability and security. It’s one of the many reasons we’re ranked in Gartner Magic Quadrants for Data Center Outsourcing.

Cloud
Ensono helps clients drive consistent impact with our Ensono Cloud Transform Framework, a best-practices methodology for public cloud. The Ensono Cloud Transform Framework is delivered via a modular set of services – Cloud Activate, Cloud Migrate, Cloud Optimize, Cloud Operate, Cloud Enable and Cloud Innovate - depending upon the stage of a client's cloud journey and their specific goals and challenges.

Consulting and Advisory
Our Consulting and Advisory practice helps clients gather deep insights on their infrastructure, applications and interdependencies, to design a tailored roadmap to meet their goals.

Application Services
We help clients optimize and modernize applications to reduce costs while meeting business needs.  Availability of their custom and enterprise applications is essential to their business, but management of these critical applications can divert a client's focus from strategic innovations. Ensono’s experienced professionals are trusted by clients to improve the agility, availability and security of their business applications. It’s one of the many reasons we’re ranked #1 in customer satisfaction for IT outsourcing by Data Monitor’s Black Book of Outsourcing.
