As a Solutions Architect, you will provide technical leadership for a team of consultants in the design and development of solutions for our clients.

You must possess hands-on experience in developing and deploying distributed architectures and platforms, creating benchmark tests, designing for scalability and performance, and implementation for custom applications, CRM, Business Intelligence, and cloud solutions and services.

Those adept at balancing business need and software development best practices in equal measure will find success. Your team may be as large as six, or as small as just you. Either way, a love of hands-on development, collaboration, and constant learning is a must. Those that are willing to step outside the bounds of traditional development, and embrace SaaS solutions, development libraries and enterprise platforms will have a competitive advantage? just like Mind Over Machines!
