  • This role will synthesize client takeaways across multiple engagements to continue to build Cedar’s internal tools, resources, and practices.
  • This role will lead client engagement between contract signature and implementation kickoff, working closely with our Commercial Strategy and Partnerships teams to ensure all client workstreams are prioritized, contracts/SOWs are confirmed, and requirements are clear for technical teams to deliver against.
