0 people like this description

As a Software Architect you would be involved in leading agile implementation and transformation projects at Fortune 500 companies. You would be a core member of the consulting team with responsibilities that range from shaping and implementing strategic products to ensuring that they stay on the leading edge of technology.

The Software Architect has a real passion for software engineering. Well qualified candidates will have contributed to open source projects, have participated in some technical community or interest group or have written or spoken in public about their technical ideas. Despite having over 7 to 10 years of experience, a Software Architect will still be an active learner: tinkering with new open source libraries, using unfamiliar technologies without a lot of supervision and learning new programming languages in their spare time, etc. Lastly, the individual would also have a strong understanding of key Agile engineering practices to guide senior client IT leaders on improvement opportunities in their engineering practices.

Desired Skills
The Software Architect would demonstrate an excellent knowledge of technology across several domains and share our excitement about:

NodeJS, Ruby on Rails, Java, Clojure, Golang, Scala, Erlang, Docker, *MQ, Apache Kafka, Spark, Storm, Cassandra, PostgreSQL, Datomic, Neo4J, Chef, Puppet, CloudFormation, OpenStack, Python, .Net, JavaScript, CSS, SASS

Engineering practices such as pair programming, continuous integration, test driven development, Microservices, RESTful design and incremental design should be second nature to the Software Architect. She or he should be using testing frameworks such as RSpec, JUnit, Midje or Selenium on a daily basis and writing code without tests should be unimaginable. At the same time, a successful candidate will not only be a good learner, but a good teacher. They should inspire their peers and more junior team members to learn and expand their skill set, guiding them in the right direction.
