Have you devoted your career to public service? Do you want to make a difference on a larger scale? Looking to build your personal brand as a subject matter expert? InterSystems is seeking a Senior Advisor for our North American and International public sector teams.

As a senior-level individual contributor with deep understanding of public sector operations, procurement, and regulatory processes, you will partner with our public sector team to identify potential opportunities and better serve existing customers. You’ll advise the product team on new functionality. You’ll serve as a market evangelist and as the face of InterSystems to industry collaboratives.
