A day at Symbility Intersect is never the same.
As a Solutions Architect, you will work with clients and internal teams to drive business development and support engineering delivery. You will lead design the scoping of technical solutions from client requirements. You will work closely with clients to conduct any technical discovery, architecture design, and API exploration needed to ensure project success. As a key technical client-facing team member, you will have to present solutions and articulate rationales and assumptions. In addition to technical client-facing communication, you will often work closely with several cross-functional teams in product and business development to arrive at optimal solutions and help deliver great products.
As our Solutions Architect, you will be responsible for the following:
- Analyze and assess client requests to define the scope of work for product and engineering
- Break down complex (or vague) requirements into manageable, well isolated tasks
- Explore unknowns and propose sound solutions that will win in sales and delivery feasibility
- Identify risks and constraints for proposed solutions and ongoing projects
- Articulate decisions, rationales, and assumptions with both external clients and internal teams
- Determine best course of action on technical uncertainty, and include best guess of effort
- Estimate project effort for every department, and create optimal recommendations for cost and timeline
- Visualize component stacks, integration dependencies, and data flows with architecture diagrams
- Understand and define API specifications (Server-side and client-side)
- Invest in internal process improvement and tooling development
As our Solutions Architect, you will possess the following skills, attributes and experience:
- A highly technical background (i.e. Bachelors Degree in Computer Science, Software Engineering, or relevant field)
- 3-5 years of professional experience
- Experience shipping an iOS, Android, Web, or API project
- Experience creating various types of technical diagram with tools
- Experience or understanding of the Agile methodology
- You are comfortable with estimating tasks
- You are comfortable with uncertainty/unknowns and resourceful in researching information either via hands-on experimentation or exploration of documentation.
- You are paranoid about risks that can impact projects, and anticipatory worst-case planning comes like second nature to you.
- You can work autonomously, self-prioritizing and managing your time, switching between multiple projects and environments as required, to deliver high-priority items quickly.
- You have an impeccable attention to detail, while moving in a fast-paced environment.
