About The Role

Like any Solution Architect, you’ll be driving projects from client discussion to implementation. So, you might find yourself justifying a particular database selection, then mentoring junior developers, or even crawling through someone else’s failed project so our client can fix it for them. They could go on, but you get it!

They work with software, but primarily with a focus on cloud-based applications. Ideally, you will have extensive knowledge of full-stack software development and cloud technologies. It’s a must to feel comfortable working hands-on with a dynamic mix of tools.

Note: This role is roughly 80% coding and 15% pre-sales.

Let your geek flag fly! You’re not only crazy innovative, but sensible. They celebrate creativity – even

abstract philosophy – in their process; understanding that it often leads us to their most innovative ideas.

What’s awesome is that they’re treating their Solution Architect as a true expert. You’ll be communicating directly with clients to understand their needs; translating requirements into project plans and deliverables; designing a convincing solutions architecture; then, maybe sharing a quick Giphy over Slack (forewarning: they’re aggressive with memes).

While you are a total part of a team, you will often be the lead on your projects. You’ll ensure that all due diligence is completed and risks are mitigated; scope and assumptions are documented and be sure that they’re providing the most correct solutions for their clients. Because they want you to be successful, proven experience and unbreakable confidence in this specific role are invaluable to us.
