Software Architect

The Challenge:

Everyone is trying to "harness the power of the cloud," but not everyone knows how. As a cloud architect, you know how to build a cloud-based technical architecture that meets customer needs and takes advantage of cloud capabilities. What if you could use your cloud architecture skills to improve case management and big data solutions. We need you to lead our team as we develop cloud-based solutions to support some of our client's toughest challenges.

As a lead cloud architect on our team, you'll design innovative solutions which not only will be tailored to meet the needs of a single customer but will identify common patterns that can be used across multiple clients facing similar challenges. You'll guide your team as they research the current environment and recommend tools and capabilities from various on-premise, cloud-based, and hybrid resources. You'll share expertise with your team through leadership and mentoring, as they help the customer overcome their most difficult challenges in the cloud. Your technical expertise will be vital as you work with our clients to craft solutions which address their needs and lead development teams to deliver that vision to ensure standards are met throughout the cloud migration process. This is an opportunity to use the latest cloud technologies, as you look for ways to improve your customer's environment using current cloud capabilities. You'll be able to sharpen your skills in cloud services from AWS and Azure, as well as design DevSecOps teams while developing critical systems for customers. As a technical leader, you'll identify new opportunities to build cloud-based solutions to help your customers meet their evolving needs. Join our team as we transform solutions with cloud technology.
