Company Description

We're a five-time "Best Company to Work For," where intelligent, talented people come together to do outstanding work-and have a lot of fun while they're at it. Because we're a full-service consulting firm with a diverse client base, you can count on a steady stream of opportunities to work with cutting-edge technologies on projects that make a real difference.

Logic20/20's Global Delivery Model creates a connected experience for Logicians across geographies. You'll have access to projects in different locations, the technology to support Connected Teams, and in-person and online culture events in our Connected Hub cities.

Job Description

We are building an enterprise architecture shared service that will deliver value to a wide variety of business groups and support innovative initiatives across the organization.

We are looking for a Systems Architect to develop innovative solutions and technology strategies. As Systems Architect you will own the solution design strategy across business domains. You'll interface with multiple stakeholders in an organization to understand the various levels of requirements, the domain, the viable technologies, and the anticipated development process. You'll also be responsible for determining multiple designs and implementation alternatives, assessing such alternatives based on all identified constraints (such as cost, schedule, space, power, safety, usability, reliability, maintainability, security, availability, and others), and selecting the most suitable options for further design. The output of such work will set the core properties of the system and those that are hardest to change later. If you are looking to exercises judgment in methods, techniques, and evaluation criteria for obtaining results, all while developing relationships with teams across the organization, keep reading.
