What would your day look like?

  • Design – technical blueprint vision and reality may be different at times. Seek for the right solution design against current and future business needs. Select the right technologies, tools, design patterns. Designs meet scalability, testability, interoperability, securability etc criteria.
  • Standardization – uniformity in software design patterns, principles, and followed practices inspires you to mentor, set expectations and guidelines, validate, adjust.
  • Governance – drive alignment, check if integrity is maintained, enforce agreements and practices, hold yourself and others accountable staying on the chosen path, oversee implementation.
  • Solve problems – analyzing, detecting and solving problems in current architecture, pressure points and help engineering teams to overcome them.

  • Initiate and drive impact – you lead by example, by creating proof of concepts, prototypes, document and initiate needed work to achieve goals, objectives and be deadline driven. Setting targets is a way to check back and validate we are on track.
  • Contribute to the team's commitments. Working with teams when solving problems or accelerating new work items you become a team member and contribute within the team.

What do you need to succeed?

  • Full-stack development experience for 10+ years.
  • Broad experience across multiple programming languages, while PHP, JavaScript, React.js, Node.js, and Python give you a strong edge. Rapidly learning new technologies is expected behavior. You can call yourself a polyglot in programming languages.
  • Knowledge of data and event-driven architectures, GraphQL and RestAPI concepts, client side vs server side rendering, high performance application solutions are needed to succeed.
  • Diagramming, specification writing – UML, flowcharts, data schema designs are common tools. Able to articulate and visualize problems and solutions. We thrive on C4 modeling.
  • Cloud applications – experienced with designing and/or building multi-region architecture in AWS, Azure, GCP or other datacenter approach. You also know how to extend to on-premises.
  • Design patterns – strong knowledge of software design patterns. Monolith, SPA, modern microservice and SOA design constructs are areas that you are familiar with.
  • Knowledge of coding best practices – KISS, Rule of Three/Five etc are tools to reduce complexity, increase reusability and maintainability. You like to learn and mentor others on these.
  • Be a team player – while being knowledgeable, skillful, then architecture needs a lot of people to believe, contribute, participate and build the future. You drive results through others.
