Systems 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 the digital industry?

As a solutions architect on our team, you'll translate your customer’s IT needs and future goals into a plan by working as a member of an agile team and help lead design, development, deployment and maintenance of enterprise software systems. You will ensure that solutions maintain responsibility for meeting software quality and security standards. Evaluate hardware and software interfaces, operational requirements, and characteristics of the overall system. Support processes to review and analyze requirements and acceptance criteria and provide Level of Effort estimates. 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 as we build systems to change the digital industry for the better.
