Do you have a passion for helping to deliver world-class software solutions? Would you like to do this using the newest computing technologies? Do you have a knack for helping an organization understand application architectures and integration approaches, architect advanced cloud-based solutions, and launch the build-out of those systems? Are you one of those rare technologists with the communications, consultative, and leadership skills to help guide major projects to success?

If the answer is "Yes" and you meet the qualifications, then the Client Solutions Delivery architecture team would like to talk to you!!

The right individual would balance product solutioning with hands-on technical capabilities and extend broader leadership capabilities to a larger community of software engineers, in order to align everyone to a shared technology direction and strategy.

This role involves tight collaboration with business stakeholders, teams, customers, and third-party stakeholders in defining the technology infrastructure, decomposition into components and subsystems, and the definition of interfaces between subsystems.
