Remote Solution Architect

Company: Inventive
Location: Los Angeles
Posted on: November 22, 2021

Job Description:

If Star Wars was comprised of engineers, there's no question Yoda was a Solution Architect.

Wise, nimble, and diminutively green, Yoda never spent too much time worrying; understanding that a great plan reduces the "What Ifs?". We believe that the best solution is always the most informed.

Our mission lies in helping others be successful, and our next Solution Architect will help us continue to chart the correct path. Much like Yoda, you are the guide and the educator along the way.

Everyone at Inventive holds themselves to a high bar for quality, efficacy, and innovation, but our Solution Architects certainly hold themselves to the highest. They are always seeking continuous improvement; looking for new tools, methods, and approaches to solve our most complex problems.


--- Getting shit done, brilliantly isn't just a cheeky tagline. We say what we mean, so get prepared to jump on board and trust your gut when it comes to GSD - let's rock it out!

--------- Like any Solution Architect, you'll be driving projects from client discussion to implementation. So, you might find yourself justifying a particular database selection, then mentoring junior developers, or even crawling through someone else's failed project so we can fix it for them. We could go on, but you get it!

------ We work with software, but primarily with a focus on cloud-based applications. Ideally, you will have extensive knowledge of full-stack software development and cloud technologies. It's a must to feel comfortable working hands-on with a dynamic mix of tools.

Let your geek flag fly! You're not only crazy innovative, but sensible. We celebrate creativity - even abstract philosophy - in our process; understanding that it often leads us to our most innovative ideas.

What's awesome is that we're treating our Solution Architect as a true expert. You'll be communicating directly with clients to understand their needs; translating requirements into project plans and deliverables; designing a convincing solution architecture; then, maybe sharing a quick Giphy over Slack (forewarning: we're aggressive with memes).

While you are a total part of a team, you will often be the lead on your projects. You'll ensure that all due diligence is completed and risks are mitigated; scope and assumptions are documented and be sure that we're providing the most correct solution for our clients. Because we want you to be successful, proven experience and unbreakable confidence in this specific role are invaluable to us.


Experience that's required (and really important to have):
10+ years of relevant experience; preferably in an SMB and/or consultancy
Strong business acumen coupled with engineering, architecture, and project management skills
Solid track record as a Solution Architect on full-stack integrations and cloud migrations
Solid experience with hands-on full-stack development (MERN and .NET preferred)
Experience with Cloud (AWS and/or Azure) and serverless architectures (AWS Lambda and/or Azure Functions)
Excellent verbal and written communication skills; bulletproof technical documentation
Experience mentoring (and ability to be mentored!)

Ways to stand out from the crowd:
High EQ: ability to "read the room" with clients and team alike
Confidence: a sound thought leader with a strong desire to generously share knowledge
Tenacity: proven ability to dig into unfamiliar territories to solve complex problems
Team-oriented: strong preference towards collaboration over solitude
Humility: Check your ego at the door
Demonstrate expertise through projects like:
End-to-end mobile application and supporting infrastructure
Multi-database architectures
BYOPP (Bring your own passion project)

You'll totally fit into our team if you are:
Searching to fit into an amazing, "do good" culture
Passionate about software development (it's okay to be obsessed)
Naturally pleasant, self-motivated, and driven
Committed to continuous improvement in and out of work
Demonstrate respect and professionalism in everything you do
Dependable, available, and on time!

Please note: This is a full-time contract position. Inventive does not offer sponsorship. Being authorized to work in the U.S. is a precondition of employment.
