Microsoft Gold Partner and a leading service integrator/provider and educator of on-premises, cloud, hybrid identity, and device management solutions based on the Microsoft solution stack. We understand that users expect apps, services, and information to be available everywhere from almost any device and that our customers are charged with providing this, all while managing security, cost, and compliance. The foundation of making this all possible is in enabling customers to execute an effective identity, access, and device management strategy – whether it is consolidating/hardening their on-premises environment, consuming cloud-based services, or establishing a hybrid infrastructure enabling the proper balance – this we understand and this we are passionate about. Our deep experience in this space has helped Microsoft evolve their products and have resulted in us being recognizing as Microsoft’s Partner of the Year in 6 different years.
We believe IT is confronting an “Identity Inversion” which reverses traditional identity approaches, shifts focus from central IT to cloud-first, accommodates high volumes of identities in a cost-effective and security-conscious way, with services selectively consuming identity information from the authoritative cloud store, and where standards-based accessibility and extensibility make the cloud a good central platform.
Location/Market The ideal candidate will be located in the Boston, Chicago, Detroit, Minneapolis, or New York metro areas. Secondary consideration may be given to candidates located in Atlanta, Bellevue (WA.), Dallas, Denver, Houston, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Salt Lake City, San Diego, San Francisco, San Jose, Seattle, and Washington DC metro areas. Tertiary consideration may be given to candidates residing anywhere else in the US, within a tolerable commute to a major airport.
Responsibilities Being a major contributor to strategy, the architect provides guidance and structure to maintain and evolve our delivery competency, evangelizes our technical brand and expertise in the marketplace, influences partner product and positioning decisions, and sets the technical direction for the company.
On the tactical side, the architect leverages their breadth of experience with current and emerging technologies to help clients develop a technology strategy and roadmap and then in executing on that roadmap, the architect ensures multiple concurrent engagements are effectively scoped, resourced, delivered, and closed.
Being fully independent, the architect proactively identifies and diffuses situations that could lead to execution risks, is able to triage and effectively resolve delivery issues as they are encountered, and analyzes day-to-day delivery experiences to drive improvements across the practice.
Skills & Experience Required The Architect will have a breadth of deep technical skills with a strong Microsoft bias, along with advanced certifications (at least one of: MCSE, MCITP, CISSP). Experience with appropriate technologies, including those that compete with Microsoft is essential – not all architects will cover all technologies of course, but experience in large-enterprise environments with demonstrated architecture, engineering, and operations skills in Active Directory, FIM Sync, and Azure Active Directory are critical.
The architect leads from the front – leadership and influence skills are critical. The architect is highly customer oriented, has great communication skills (written, verbal, presentation, influence), follows established process, deals extremely well with ambiguity, effectively mentors others, and has a high level of personal ambition and initiative to help them stand out in a peer group of the best in the business. The architect must have at least 10 years of experience architecting/engineering/supporting related technologies in a large-scale enterprise environment and a B.S. in Computer Science or other related field.
