What will you be doing?

The Solutions Architect's job focuses on solution-level decisions and analysis of their impact on the overall business goals and outcomes. Just like the architect in the construction industry creating a general blueprint of a future building, a person at this position must have a profound knowledge of available technologies to suggest the best solution according to the incoming requirements and existing environment. So, we can say that the product of a Solutions Architect's job is the set of technological solutions and the strategy of their implementation.

After developing a strategic technical vision of the product, the Solutions Architect is involved in estimating the budget and presenting it to the stakeholders. Once everything is agreed upon, he or she monitors the process of development and keeps stakeholders informed about the progress.

Solution architecture is a complex process - with many sub-processes - that bridges the gap between business problems and technology solutions. It encompasses:

  • Finding the best tech solution among all possible to solve the existing business problems.
  • Describing the structure, characteristics, behavior, and other aspects of software to project stakeholders.
  • Defining features, phases, and solution requirements.
  • Providing specifications according to which the solution is defined, managed, and delivered.

Responsibilities:

  • Understand the customer's technology and business environment as well as their enterprise specifics
  • Analyze and understand business and technical requirements
  • Establish collaboration framework and engage the correct WWT resources to support
  • Creation of solution prototype
  • Lead the technology selection to best support the customer
  • Provide project management support while maintaining alignment of solution development with customer and WWT
  • Develop and Present Proposals
  • Develop Level of Effort and Statement of Work
  • Support related RFP responses
  • Develop and maintain trusted relationships within internal stakeholders including sales as well and our customer base

Requirements:

  • 10+ years of experience working in multiple IT areas
  • IT infrastructure and cloud operations and deployment
  • Engineering and software architecture design, business analysis and DevOps
  • Solid project and resource management skills as well as product management knowledge
  • Experience with complex solution delivery and driving successful customer engagements.
  • Experience talking to IT and Business leadership on IT projects (and how those projects impact the business)
  • Excellent communications skills with the ability to work collaboratively
  • Strong analytical and creative problem-solving skills
  • Ability to successfully influence and negotiate

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion is more than a commitment at WWT - it is the foundation of what we do. Through diverse networks and pipelines, we have a clear vision: to create a Great Place to Work for All. We believe inclusion includes U. Be who U are at WWT!
