Migration Delivery Lead – Estonia 8 months rolling – Migration Delivery Lead Estonia

Project is related to the customer migration program in the Baltics (end result is migration of customers to a single IT platform per country by the end of Q2 2020). We have made considerable progress with the program already, especially in Latvia and Lithuania where some 25% of active clients have been migrated by now. In Estonia, the start of migration is dependent on the implementation of a new core banking information system, therefore the focus so far has been on closing the gaps between the source and target systems and preparation of migration automation components. We are now looking to refocus the Estonian migration project to proceed with the integrated testing and dress rehearsals targeting the end of June as the date for big bang migration for all the customers. Due to the above, we have decided to ramp up the team by onboarding a capable EE migration delivery lead. The key objective for the person would be to drive the already established migration program in Estonia to its successful completion.
