Solution Architect


If engineers were in Star Wars, there’s no question Yoda was a Solution Architect.

Wise, nimble, and diminutively green, Yoda never spent too much time worrying; understanding that a great plan reduces the “What Ifs?”.  We believe that the best solution is always the most informed. 

Our mission lies in helping others be successful, and our next Solution Architect will help us continue to chart the right path for pre-sales, discoveries, and engineering.  Much like Yoda, Solution Architects are broad, deep, and the consummate guide for our clients and engineering team alike.

  1. 10-minute one-way video interview via Spark Hire

Challenges and Opportunities 

Getting shit done, brilliantly isn’t just a cheeky tagline.  We say what we mean, so get prepared to jump on board and quickly add value!

Everyone at Inventive holds themselves to a high bar for quality, efficacy, and innovation, but our Solution Architects certainly hold themselves to the highest. Solution Architects operate like true experts as they drive projects from end-to-end.

On any given day, Solution Architects will be identifying and recommending optimal solutions for clients; developing and presenting technical proposals, translating requirements into project plans and deliverables; and considering factors such as cost-effectiveness, scalability, and long-term sustainability. 

Different from our Technical Architect role, a Solution Architect is more of a cross-functional leader and engineering team lead. They are highly collaborative with a variety of teams from Sales, Product, Design, and Project Management, and ensure that all due diligence is completed and risks are mitigated; scope and assumptions are documented; and confirm that we’re providing a quality experience and product to our clients.  

Lastly, Solution Architects are true Evangelists for Inventive. They share ideas often to a broader audience often and let their geek flag fly! They are not only crazy innovative, but sensible and  business-minded.  

Because we want you to be successful, having proven success and unbreakable confidence in an Architect role is invaluable to us. Ideal candidates will have broad knowledge of many full-stack software development and cloud technologies, and a sincere desire to mentor the team, guide the clients, and pioneer new growth at Inventive.
