Word format and a time that's best for us to talk.

You are a software architect with years of experience in enterprise software engineering. You know all the databases, all the API philosophies, all the cloud services (especially AWS), and you live to design systems for performance, testability, scalability, and availability. You believe architects should have their hands in code, from the proofing-out of design concepts to the implementation and delivery of shared horizontal tools and frameworks. You know that simplicity and visibility are inversely proportional to business risk, and while you encourage calculated risk-taking, you’re careful to calculate risk. You’re creative and innovative, and your passion and communication skills inspire others in the organization to align with your vision and accept your collaborative guidance. At the end of the day, you are excited about delivering business value to customers.



At least 2years’ experience leading architecture design for software development teams and 8+ years in enterprise software development

Demonstrated ability to analyze the performance, scalability and availability impact of design

Experience designing for public cloud infrastructure

Experience designing with both SQL and NoSQL data stores
