What you'll do

  • Drive alignment & improvement of technical strategy across all vertical features & horizontal layers of the stack
  • Ensure that our solutions are designed & implemented to address relevant architectural concerns (e.g. extensibility, maintainability, scalability, reliability, etc.)

  • Regularly assess the health of architecture & systems. Advocate for upgrades, maintenance, & improvements. Help to communicate the value of that work to non-technical stakeholders.
  • Contribute code & tests to team projects as needed, & occasionally take on solo projects to lay foundations for better architecture
  • Work with large, disparate datasets & find opportunities for interoperability
  • Proactively create, refine, communicate, & evangelize our technical vision

  • Participate in high-level product brainstorming & roadmap planning as a technical consultant
  • Build consensus & buy-in for our technical strategy across the department
  • Help our engineers grow & level up their skills via mentorship, teaching, etc.
