Xerox is in the early stages of a strategic transformation. We’re leveraging the power of our existing platform of free cash flow every year to reinvigorate our iconic brand, reignite our innovation engine and optimize our operations, all while maintaining our reputation for quality and reliability. The success of this transformation hinges on the talent and commitment of our team. We need strong communicators with excellent interpersonal skills who thrive working in a fast-paced, team-oriented environment.

The successful candidate will be based in the Company’s headquarters in Norwalk, CT, but there will be flexibility to work out of the Company’s other offices in the New York metro area (in Midtown and Long Island).
