  • Experience of architecting platforms to support millions of end users
  • Experience with developing and operating scalable, modular, performance-driven platforms utilizing PaaS and SaaS native cloud models
  • Design systems to meet security, performance, scalability, reliability, and maintainability requirements.
  • Participate in design discussions about new features and approaches to implementing new services and collaborate cross-functionally to analyze, engineer, and implement end-to-end solutions.
  • Create architecture, designs, and documentation that will lead to consistent reliability, scalability, security, and performance of the system as a whole
  • Coach and guide cross-functional teams through technical tasks and work with product managers to understand feature requirements.
  • Plan short-term efforts and assist with the planning of medium- and long-term efforts and multi-team projects.
  • Maintain technical and working knowledge of systems to act as subject matter expert for the overall system
  • Exceptional team skills with the ability to drive collaboration and partnerships across various parts of an organization
  • Exceptional communication skills with the ability to communicate at all levels – from junior engineers to C-Suite
