As a Solutions Architect at Entelect, you will no longer be fully involved in one project or customer. Your core responsibilities are at a company level and you will be expected to consult across several projects and initiatives.
By this point in your career you have proven that you are not only a master craftsperson, but that you:
- Can be fully trusted with all technical decision making
- Can balance technical requirements with a project’s business objectives
- Have contributed to improving Entelect’s technical landscape
- Have a vested interest in growing your own brand as well as the Entelect brand as a whole, both internally and within the broader software development community
AT A HIGH LEVEL, THE SOLUTIONS ARCHITECTS HAVE THE FOLLOWING RESPONSIBILITIES:
“I joined Entelect 9 years ago as a senior software engineer...It’s not always been easy. The work is very challenging, but that gives you the opportunity to prove yourself and move up the chain. Now I am a Solutions Architect, so the challenges have all been worthwhile."
Solutions Architects are still involved in the implementation of projects, usually at a minimum of 2 days a week.
Strategically it is important to build the Entelect brand and contribute to the development of the community.
You are responsible for mentoring and driving the Technical Leads within Entelect.
ASSESSMENTS AND CONSULTING
Solutions Architects may be required to complete technical assessments of existing systems.
Solutions Architects are ultimately responsible for training at Entelect and this includes both the strategic and operational aspects behind it.
STANDARDS AND DOCUMENTATION
You are now the custodian of quality of delivery across Entelect, and are responsible for ensuring that the relevant standards are in place.
As the technical authority at Entelect, you will be consulted during the proposal phase of projects to ensure the correct technical decisions are being made.
RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT
You would be expected to assign some of your time to R&D.
