How You Will Get The Job Done

As full stack architect will be involved from the earliest stage to scope ideas and propose tech solutions. Build out of the development standards, choice of the deployment and scalability factors, with a strong pivot role with different development entities, liaison with project manager and other architects in a leading role. Convincing, motivating and coaching different groups. Building up a team of senior developers and leading them.

This is a hands on role, driven by the use of the latest tech, best practice, highest security and solid development and quality processes.
The full stack architect needs to be fluent across all technology components that include the application stack of microservices for flow processing, backend, database, storage, and web/mobile user interface, and have a “spike” (i.e., bring deep expertise) in one or more areas. As our business increasingly engages with external ecosystems of technologies, full stack architects should provide expertise in third-party packaged software, fluency in multiple best-of-breed technologies, and experience with multiple-technology integration strategies. Part of the role is to guarantee that security, compliance and legal restrictions provided related to the business sector are respected.
You need to be effective at linking the architectural vision with the business vision and building solutions that focus on business value, not just technical excellence. You have a deep understanding of how an architecture will need to evolve to meet changing business goals and like to produce working software as one of the best ways to illustrate a concept.
