We are looking for a full-time Cloud Native Software Architect to join our client-centered team. This position offers the flexibility of fully remote work. Note that you must be able to work in the United States; we do not sponsor visas at this time.
Soliant Consulting is a full-service, award-winning technology consulting and development company serving SMBs throughout the United States and internationally. We offer custom native web applications as well as services across the AWS, Salesforce, and Claris/FileMaker platforms. Founded in 2004, our company has been a Claris Platinum Partner for many years, became a Salesforce Partner in 2009, and achieved AWS Advanced Partner status in 2021, demonstrating our focus on helping our clients innovate and presenting an immense opportunity for growth for you.
As Trusted Advisors, we take a consultative approach in helping our clients solve problems and drive efficiency. We serve as partners to help clients anticipate the future of their businesses and build powerful digital solutions to keep them ahead of the game.
At Soliant, we cultivate a vibrant culture of smart, fun, collaborative, and interesting people working together to build technology that empowers our clients to thrive. We invest in our team members through our employee-ownership model, mentorship program, and focus on diversity, equity, and inclusion.
We offer a fully remote work environment to all our employees, along with travel options for visiting clients and colleagues. Soliant leadership prioritizes opportunities for in-person cultural touchpoints throughout the year; our annual three-day Offsite is a team favorite. It’s not surprising that for three years running, we’ve been recognized nationally as a Best & Brightest Company to Work For®.
People who join Soliant tend to stay with us for the long haul - we have an extremely low turnover rate of three percent, well below the industry average. Our clients love to stay with us as well; 80% of our annual revenue comes from repeat business from existing clients.
Cloud Native Software Architect
Qualified candidates will be experienced creating full stack modern TypeScript applications on cloud infrastructure using Agile Scrum processes including taking part in Backlog Grooming, Story Point estimating, and Sprint Planning. As a Cloud Native Software Architect, you will have a primary responsibility for the project architecture and will set an example for other developers.
Autonomy, Mastery, and Purpose
Do you prefer teams with low drama and high maturity? Are you fed up with the startup and short-term contract games? Or maybe you are tired of being stuck on an ossified enterprise team and crave working with a variety of customers across diverse industries.
You’re in luck! Our team is small, and our culture is optimized for senior developers - you’ll have freedom to make decisions about what we should do and how. You have significant autonomy to tune and improve our mature architectural and process standards. As consultants, we work on a variety of cloud native applications each year, so you won’t get stuck in a rut. We hire people who know how to get the job done and who are always striving to improve things.
You will typically work on several diverse projects per year. We focus on a consistent process for gathering and defining requirements to avoid the typical chaos of startups, which pairs nicely with opportunities to start fresh periodically and evolve with the state of the art.
We support many professional development options, such as attendance at conferences and sponsorship for training and certification efforts.
Our company also supports contributing back to OSS, and we have a philanthropic committee that selects organizations making a difference in the world for development grants. If you are motivated by these types of things, you are encouraged to take part. This job is very much what you make of it.
Our Tech Stack
We aren’t over-concerned with exactly which platforms and technologies you have experience with so long as you have solid experience developing full stack modern TypeScript applications in the cloud and are able to adapt to established standards and practices.
We are intentionally somewhat opinionated so that we can gain common experience and support each other on various projects. The technical components we select for a typical client project naturally tend to evolve over time along with changes in the industry. We currently favor the following on our client projects:
As a Cloud Native Lead Software Architect, you’ll work as a tech lead on a Client Services Team (CST) that handles a portfolio of cloud native projects. CSTs generally also include a Business Analyst, a Project Manager, and other developers.
You’ll take part in Soliant’s internal tech forums, contribute to the growth of your CST, and help with continual refinement and improvement of best practices as the industry moves forward.
As a reliable self-starter who writes clean robust code, you’ll deliver significant value for appreciative clients, and you’ll share in the effort to dramatically improve your clients’ businesses.
