Position summary

Sutherland is a digital transformation company focused on delivering exceptional experiences for both customers and employees. For over 30 years, we have been entrusted with caring for our clients’ customers - a responsibility we believe we should earn every day. We are dedicated to making those experiences as delightful as possible - instantaneous, relevant, predictive and frictionless. As an early pioneer in robotic automation, we added to our core through steady investment and acquiring key capabilities. Our design capabilities marry human insight, design-thinking, and process engineering. To make these designs come to life as envisioned by our designers, we employ the latest in robotic automation, conversational AI techniques with a range of AI-ML enhanced products and cloud-based platforms.

We believe that the best relationships come from trust and value. In addition to delivering exceptionally engineered experiences, we help our clients improve their productivity, reduce costs, enhance customer loyalty, build additional revenues, reduce time-to-market and efficiently enter new markets. We also stand by our results. Sixty-one percent of our business is outcome based, ensuring our success is clearly tied to our clients’ success. We think that is pretty simple for our clients to understand, and it adds to trust and transparency. Today, over 60 percent of our revenues come from clients with us for more than 11 years.

Our offerings deliver on this whether they are Sutherland Anywhere, enabling a secure remote work environment or Sutherland Connect, delivering data-rich, omni-channel services. Our deep product and platform expertise is trained on solving human problems before they emerge, and on how we wrap services around them - hiring, training, performance, security and more - to solve those problems for our clients from end to end.

We work with clients across industries, including Banking, Financial Services and Insurance, Healthcare, Retail, Telecommunications, Media & Entertainment, and Technology, as well as Travel, Hospitality and Logistics. Not surprisingly, we work with many clients who, like us, care deeply about customer experience, such as Amazon, Airbnb, T-Mobile, Goldman Sachs, Sony, Toyota, Disney, Netflix, Humana, and others.
