Overview:

Welcome to SOLTECH

 

At SOLTECH, our founders started with a vision over 18 years ago for the success of our firm: to provide expert custom software solutions and project management support to our incredible community here in Atlanta, GA. That vision has not only come to fruition but has grown into a wide portfolio of solutions we provide to our clients – clients nurtured over decades of genuine connection with the technology community. We’re homegrown and founder-led, and we welcome creative, intuitive thinkers to our team that can help pave the landscape for what’s next to come in high-quality custom software development and staffing.

 

Software Solutions at SOLTECH

 

The Software Solutions team at SOLTECH works with clients at every stage of the software process, from discovery to design, to full implementation of high caliber software products. We're a collaborative team, so if learning from others is your jam, we're here to help you grow in your career. SOLTECH is committed to the success of our team's constant learning and we want smart, hungry engineers to join us. We work with clients of all sizes, and we take great pride in contributing to technology that helps improve the world around us. Our team is small but mighty, which means you sit amongst experts in the industry, yet maintain the opportunity to create a serious impact on a team.

About the role

As an Application Architect at SOLTECH, you're well versed in the architecture and development of complex software applications, with a strong background as a software engineer. You have a passion for architecting software solutions for development teams, where you pair your expertise in development with your technical design experience. We work on project-based work, which means you'll see the fruits of your labor in full cycle, and have the pleasure of delivering impactful solutions to our clients.

Day to Day

  • Guide early-phase application decisions through very strong communication skills and deep technical expertise alongside a Solutions Architect, where your focus will be on guiding the engineering of complex custom software.
  • Work with clients to engage in technical design discussions and dictate the technology needs, the functionality of the system over time, and how all components of the solution design will work in harmony.
  • Write user stories, contribute to wire-framing when necessary, and document the engineering process every step of the way to provide clear guidelines for the implementation team.
  • Keep all aspects of a technical project in mind to ensure that all critical factors for success are considered: scalability, maintainability, testability, etc.
  • Manage, mentor, and guide the engineering team you're working with, contributing to the decisions on resources utilized, pace, and support needed once an application is designed.
  • Combine a broad understanding of current technologies with deep, architect-level expertise in core areas such as database design and software architecture.


About You

  • Deep, hands-on, architect-level understanding of NodeJS along with experience architecting cloud-based and mobile software solutions
  • Proven consultative client-facing expertise
  • In-depth and hands-on development experience in a technical vertical NodeJS, with many achievements in the delivery of full life cycle development projects
  • Expertise in making technology decisions, not tethered to a single stack or language, after assessing client needs. 
  • Proactive and strong research abilities: investigation of technology, third party vendors, and new technologies is second nature to you and it's a part of your process that you enjoy
  • Experience with application design 
  • High level of professionalism
  • Extremely clear communicator with a listen-first approach
  • A Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science, Engineering or equivalent
  • Bonus points: Strong data background and understanding of data warehousing and business intelligence solutions is considered a plus, but not a hard requirement
  • Bonus points: Strong leadership experience, with proven ability to train and guide an engineering team in the implementation of a solution
  • We are unable to sponsor H1B candidates at this time


About our Team and Environment

We hire hard-working, entrepreneurial people, and believe in empowering them to do great work – we welcome creative thinkers that will raise their hands when a great idea crosses their mind, or when they feel strongly about an alternative opinion (with all due respect!). We hire personable, creative thinkers and proactive problem solvers.

Our Buckhead, Atlanta office was built out just over two years ago, and we’re proud of the modern environment we’ve created for our team – an open floor plan means high opportunity for collaboration for our team, and offices are available for those roles that require more privacy in their work. You’ll never be left at the office with hunger pains because we keep our two kitchens stocked with refreshments and snacks to keep our amazing talent satiated! Round out the office with panoramic views that stretch from Buckhead to Downtown to Stone Mountain, we have the most impressive views in town and know you’ll love them, too.

We try to pull away from the computer as a team, too, with bi-weekly soft-skill development gatherings, group lunch crews, lunch-and-learns, and a dedicated culture-creator on the team to make sure we’re constantly nurturing our talent development. Join the SOLTECH team and you’re in for an awesome journey of contributing to an established firm with a creative energy for growth.
