Chicago, IL
At ServerCentral Turing Group (SCTG), we enable and transform businesses using technology. Through our hybrid cloud solutions and expertise, SCTG offers public cloud guidance, strategy, management, and application development in addition to core managed data center, private cloud, and managed IT services.

Sales Executives at SCTG will enjoy working for a growing company with a long-standing, impeccable reputation for getting the job done for clients. We live in a hybrid IT world and no single infrastructure meets the needs of all applications. Our sales executives have the opportunity to work with experienced solution architects and explore with each client their unique business drivers, applications, data classification, compliance and security needs, and availability targets to design solutions tailored to deliver results.
