About the job

We need a top-notch application architect to work
with the Chief Software Architect and the engineering team to design and
build the next evolution of our already successful product. This job
will give you an opportunity to work on projects integral to our future
success, such as a scalable batch-oriented system for running our report
generation, redesigning how we deploy new clients on our system so we
can push more through the process faster, and the application side of a
large-scale real-time data warehouse.
To be successful at this
job, you will need to balance being a visionary with the practical
requirements of evolving a fully deployed application. No building ESBs
and SOAs because those happen to be the buzzwords of the enterprise. But
if an ESB or an SOA is the best architecture for the solution, then
bring your design chops and your coding skills to help us make that
future a reality now. This is absolutely a hands-on job.

Responsibilities

  • Design and development of application software
  • Help guide our technical vision, application architecture and development practices
  • Participate in code reviews to identify potential improvements
  • Mentor and coach team members
  • Contribute to the overall improvement of our Agile development process
  • Act as a key technical representative outside the development team and outside the company

About You

  • 10-15 years of hands-on engineering experience
  • At least 5 years experience as architect, two of which must be on a single product
  • At least 1 year working in a fully Agile development environment
  • Expert with Java, Spring Framework, Hibernate, SQL, and strong with HTML/CSS/Javascript
  • Experience working with large data sets (at least 100s of gigabytes)
  • Expert technical communicator — can explain design decisions and trade-offs to engineers of all experience levels
  • Strong desire and ability to teach other engineers the ways of the architect
  • Instincts to design for the future but build for today
  • Passionate about helping the team do it’s best work
