Solution Architect, Senior

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 federal civilian agencies?

As a solutions architect on our team, you'll translate your customer’s IT needs and future goals into a plan by crafting full-stack technology solutions and detailed system documentation, including system diagrams and design specifications, and assist with proposal technical section development, performing functional and technical proof of concepts.
