 *** U.S. Citizens and those authorized to work in the U.S. are encouraged to apply. We are unable to sponsor at this time. ***

Responsibilities: 

  • Embody technical excellence: Craft technical designs and architectural solutions to meet business and product needs. Be a role model for the architectural ideas of other technical staff.
  • Awareness of the technology landscape: Provide architectural assessments of existing technologies, team deliverables, and industry developments and trends.
  • Experienced at software prototyping: Build software proof-of-concepts to determine the feasibility and technical risks of a proposed design, or to evaluate new technologies.
  • Good communicator of technical ideas: Understand, define, and communicate critical quality attributes or non-functional requirements. Simplify ideas for different audiences.
  • Partnership with product and engineering teams: Provide key technical inputs to product, technology, and platform roadmaps.
  • Peer leader for transformation and technical excellence: Collaborate and lead with other architects in the creation, adoption, and spread of company technology standards and principles for engineering teams

Requirements:

  • About 7 to 10 years of full-time engineering or architectural experience, with at least half of that having solutions architecture responsibilities. We are looking for people who explicitly responsible for architect solutions, who come from a technical background, and who either held an explicit architecture role or were in a technical leadership role where architecture was a core function.
  • Demonstrated ability to write software. While the production of software is not your primary role, technical credibility is vital for communicating effectively with engineers and demonstrating technical excellence for example, building proof of concepts, sketching out test cases so you can experiment on, and so on.
  • Familiarity with modern, domain-driven modeling approaches and tools, so that you can communicate your ideas consistently. Good technical modeling doesn't mean opening PowerPoint; it means thinking carefully about how the systems you'll be helping teams build together will work with each other and representing that in ways that everyone can understand.
  • Facilitation and communication skills. You will lead internal and external stakeholders to shared understandings of complex domains and propose technical solutions. You will need to be able to communicate the merits and tradeoffs of your ideas both to technical and nontechnical executives, as well as engineers and product owners.
  • Demonstrated strategic thinking beyond the scope of your technical solution. Your work and designs are always part of a greater whole. Understanding how you impact other systems and people and articulating how it aligns with broader goals are important.
  • Expertise with Azure, the .NET CLR platform, and the C# programming language.
