Are you looking for technical mentorship, growth, and a high impact role within a fully-remote product company? This is an exceptional opportunity to make the leap into a pure architecture role with the full support of the existing team.
This role is a mixture of technical excellence and communication and influencing.
The team you'd work with:
- Alexander Danilenko
- Bozhidar Batsov
- Luca Guidi
- Robert Pankowecki
We have two architect roles within our Technical Exploration & Excellence team.
Product architects are permanently attached to the product squads and focused on their squads' success in the technical domain. Product architects work with the rest of the architecture team to define technical vision and roadmap and ensure its execution.
Platform architects support technical teams and have a specialization (back-end, front-end, quality). Platform architects occasionally join product projects that require extra support in their specialization area.
