We’re building a path to the future, and we’d like you to help us get there.
What you are good at
As a Solutions Architect you are responsible for understanding our next generation application specification, a cloud enabled solution which uses modern technologies (mongo, redis), PaaS solutions (PCF), and public IaaS (GCP, AWS). You’ll also be responsible for designing solutions for legacy applications to migrate to our cloud enabled architecture. You will be a part of building high performance, high availability architectures.

If you consider yourself someone whom developers, leads, and architects want to work with and you have the uncanny ability to drive a compelling long-term vision this is an opportunity to build modern cloud enabled applications. This role entails hands-on experience in cloud architectures (SaaS, PaaS and IaaS) and requires deep interest and experience in software platforms.
