Senior Architect - Solution Ownership

This role is not eligible for 100% remote work and employees must live within a commutable distance to the office in which the role is based.

Who You'll Work With

At Slalom Build we co-create modern technology and software products with clients who are ready to accelerate their digital transformation. We choose to imagine things made better, and then set out on a journey to realize what's possible. By blending design, product engineering, analytics, and automation, we build the custom-built software and data products of tomorrow.

Slalom's Solution Owners are lead-from-the-front technology and Agile delivery experts deeply dedicated to their projects and clients. We partner with clients to translate requirements into actionable user stories and lead cross-capability development teams to shepherd those stories into working products, on time and on budget. We work within high-velocity software engineering teams, bringing expertise in Agile software delivery. Solution Owners are passionate, flexible Agile experts who love to practice and hone their craft.

We offer a flexible working environment to balance the need to work independently, with some days that may require in-person collaboration at our office.

What You'll Do

As a Senior Architect level Solution Owner, you'll be the project expert and coach in Agile software delivery. You'll lead single, large development pods either as a stand-alone team or as a single workstream on multi-workstream programs leading and driving all project lifecycles from initial requirements gathering through deployment to Production. You'll define and work within a project governance framework (i.e., establish team cadence, run Scrum ceremonies, etc.). You'll also work very closely with the Product Owner to define the product by identifying requirements, thinking critically about what will make it successful, and writing user stories that are easily consumed by software engineers and effectively communicate the Product Owner's requirements. Solution Owners lead software delivery teams, handle issues and mitigate risks, facilitate and attend meetings, as well as provide project status reporting to management. You'll collaborate with the engineering team, in particular the Solution Architect, to define and validate the technical approach, strategy and deliverables for the project. As the leader of the team, you'll also prepare and deliver client presentations and work products.

Travel may be required on a limited basis dependent on your client engagement or internal meetings/events.

What You'll Bring

As a Senior Architect level Solution Owner, you bring 8-12 years of product development experience as a Product, Project, or Program Manager using Agile development methodologies in all phases of product, software, and testing lifecycles. You demonstrate skills at defining and documenting business and functional requirements for ongoing system improvement initiatives in iterative software development environments and are able to serve as a liaison between both business and technical teams to drive effective, timely solutions that fulfill both strategic and operational needs. You employ strong investigative, analytical, and interpersonal communication skills and combine them with the ability to work independently or as part of a team in order to embrace challenging situations and solve complex problems.

You also have a real passion for building software solutions with state-of-the-art technology and have demonstrated strong knowledge in software delivery, specifically Scrum, Kanban, SAFe, XP, and Lean. You have experience leading all Agile ceremonies, an ability to actively identify risks and drive action to mitigate them as well as resolve issues. You embrace challenging situations and enjoy solving complex problems. You also employ strong organizational skills and the ability to interpret and handle a vast array of information.

A computer science-based mindset is needed, a technology-based education is helpful.
