Who You’ll Work With
At Slalom Build we co-create custom software, data and cloud products with clients who are ready to accelerate their digital transformation. We're passionate about technology, compelled by its potential as we help create the digital products, experiences, and technology-driven organizations that drive true change. We’re thrilled by the opportunity to build the future we want to see, with anyone willing to join us.
Slalom Build is looking for a Senior Architect to join in the Platform Engineering (PE) capability. Our PE architects design and build the secure automation capabilities that enable our application and data engineers to unveil their products to the world. Our goal is to create the platform to make a product smart, secure, and fast, while minimizing toil.
You’ll be working hands-on in the cloud with some of the newest technologies out there. You’ll build in AWS, GCP, and Azure using a wide variety of tools across the DevOps landscape. You name it, we work on it. And so can you.

Your role is to provide technical expertise in your field with the consultative mindset to drive client discussions from requirements through to development. Specifically, you will:
You will primarily work in a Build Center with your team. Occasionally, you may need to work at the client location, requiring up to 50% travel.
What You’ll Bring
Senior Architects in PE bring experience as an architect across software engineering and DevOps in production in at least one major public cloud (AWS, GCP, Azure). We will tap into your knowledge of designing and implementing end-to-end continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) pipelines as well as your experience in configuration management and infrastructure as code (e.g., Chef, Puppet, Ansible, Terraform, CloudFormation, ARM, etc.) Security is part of everything we do and will require your knowledge of fundamental cloud security (e.g., identity and access management, firewalls, etc.) as we build for our customers.
As a Senior Architect you will lead and collaborate across multiple functional and/or technical teams to deliver an Agile-based project. You will be leveraging your growth mentality, bringing enthusiasm about learning new technologies quickly, and applying your gained knowledge to address practical business problems for your customer. Showing your ability to lead conversations with clients on a business level and translate their needs into technical solutions will be what maximizes velocity for the team.
