Lead Software Architect, Cloud Native Development

Company: Yoh, A Day & Zimmermann Company
Location: Austin
Posted on: April 10, 2021

Job Description:

They think it will likely be around 25% or lower after COVID. 2)

You can send subs directly to me and I'll review/get them over. Interview process is 3 rounds typically - Rax internal recruiter screen, then call with manager, and then technical interview with a few members of the team.

Position: Lead Software Architect, Cloud Native Development


Type: Perm/Full-time

Salary range: $140-$160k (upside flex here for an A+ knock-out candidate)

**There will be direct reports to this position but no manager experience is necessary. They ideally would love someone who has been a program/project lead + has worked with the customer before.

Top 3 critical qualifications (from intake call with manager):

1. In depth AWS Architecture experience

a. Deploying and building applications for AWS using AWS services

NOTE: AWS can be such a buzz word; they are not looking for candidates with simply just EC2 or NS 3 experience - those are simply containerization tools. They want someone who has built AWS applications

NOTE: Also not looking for a cloud architect (the ones who handle infrastructure/Devops/Terraform/Ansible, etc) - they want someone on the application side who can do development and modernizations.

b. A good indication of a strong fit: They'll likely have experience with Lambda, serverless architecture, IoT (AWS related), and/or microservies

2. Software engineering background

a. Java or C# preferred. Node, React, Angular would put the candidate at the top of the list.

b. The technologies stack matters less, they mostly just want someone who has come up in their career as a developer, as opposed to a devops/sys admin or functional side.

c. 3 most commonly used programming languages at Rax right now (not required but useful to know if the candidate asks/to check for while screening candidates:




3. Client facing soft skills

a. The candidate doesn't need to have had client facing roles before, but MUST be excellent at articulating his ideas, his work, and help strategize/consult with the client
