Solutions Architect

The Challenge:

At a certain point, experience based system design can start to look like clairvoyance. When you’ve developed so many systems that you can not only orchestrate the best solution for any technology based challenge, but you can also anticipate and preempt future issues, you’re a solutions architect. You’ve evolved your skills into strategy through a long path of software development accomplishments and the curiosity to understand how all of the pieces of an IT ecosystem fit together. Are you ready to use your combination of knowledge, skill, and experience to tackle the toughest challenges in data driven platforms for the federal government?  


As a solutions architect on our team, you'll translate your customer’s IT needs and future goals into a plan by crafting architecture products, design specifications, statements of work, requirements, scripts and aligning IT to business objectives. Through your leadership, we’ll help transform the way the government uses technology, including Cloud migration, integrating advanced technology, and modernizing legacy systems. And, what do you do next in a career where you’ve reached this level? You mentor the next set of developers to help them grow into tomorrow’s solutions architects. Join us and build the future of technology in the federal space for the better.


Empower change with us.
