Snapshot of problems you’ll be solving:

[Read below and see if this gets you excited; there are some cool things to tackle and where you will have a tremendous impact]

  • How do we select the right tools and services for our platform? Technology and requirements are changing constantly. Evaluation of building vs using is a frequent question.
  • How do we successfully design and validate architecture?
  • Predicting where and how our platform will break. What are the limits? How can we prevent these?
  • Building prototypes to and test solutions to complex problems
  • Software architecture is important but so as the ability to release and get changes to customers. Architecture doesn’t stop at design and implementation.
