MentorMate is seeking a Technical Solutions Architect. This role will work with MentorMate sales-focused Solutions Architects in proposing feasible technical architecture options for prospect and existing clients. You will participate in the architecture and planning of software solutions during the proposing phase, and collaborate with technical leaders in multiple practices in defining the technical architecture. You should have a wide breadth of knowledge across different development and cloud technologies, and you are curious about new emerging architecture patterns.

When the client accepts the proposed solution, you will be responsible for refining the technical architecture based on learning more about their business needs, and leading the team in the implementation of the architecture as well as manage the traceability and potential scope changes within the engagement using your understanding of the client’s business needs as well as the assumptions made about the solution. Over time, the Technical Solutions Architecture team will have defined multiple architecture patterns that will form the reference architecture library. This role will work with Software Architects across MentorMate’s development practices to refine these reference architectures over time as technology evolves. An effective Technical Solutions Architect must consider the health and well-being of the project and the client, and not focus exclusively on the merits of the technical solution.
