Optimizely Solution Architect
We usually respond within three days
As a Solution Architect, you are involved in ensuring that our deliveries technically meet the requirements highlighted by customers and that the quality meets our own expectations. In your role, you are a technical go-to person and active support to other streams - project management, requirements work and user experience.
- Solid developer background within .NET, and you have taken - or want to take - a step closer to business with business thinking and customer contact
- Having extensive experience working with Optimizely
- Experience of working with the application life cycle and having a holistic approach to the solution
- Experience in consulting or other customer-facing activities
For this position, you need to be fluent and skilled in English. Swedish is not a requirement but meritorious. This position is Hybrid.
If you feel uncertain about whether you meet the requirements or have enough experience or not- connect anyway! We are always keen to meet new talents.
Being a Solution Architect at Columbus means that you become part of a strong team with a strong team spirit, where we bring together project management and IT.
We have well-established processes for running projects and sales where you get to be a focused solution architect and not a lot of roles at once. It is your job to understand customer needs and build trust with them, both in projects and during pre-sale. You will have a chance to work with a variety of projects and systems - but with a focus on the Optimizely suite.
We also have a deep library of knowledge internally. We bounce ideas between projects and customer teams and there is always someone to ask and learn from. In the role of Solution Architect you will be based in one of our offices in Sweden, but you will also collaborate with our colleagues in Denmark, Norway, UK and Poland.
This is how our Solution Architect Jens describes his role :
I have a broad role that is adaptable if needed. It's about being a mixture of generalist and specialist. My main task is to guide the choice of path for the technical solution, both regarding development and operation.
Before a project, I participate in workshops with the customer to map and detail the technical requirements. When the project is underway, I lead the development team and have a responsibility to ensure that stories can be converted into technical specifications, that the development leads to sustainable solutions and that the delivery corresponds to the customer expectations. It is important to have an understanding of what is a good or bad solution, short or long-term, and to be clear about it both internally and externally.
I work closely with our frontend and backend dev leads who, unlike me, spend almost all of their time coding. It is a constructive collaboration where we complement each other and relieve each other.
Several of my colleagues and clients are based elsewhere in Sweden or in the world, and that is something I personally appreciate. I would think that I speak as much English as Swedish on a normal working day.
