Do you like to work on a variety of cutting edge, business-critical projects at the forefront of application development and cloud technology adoption?

  • Migrate monolithic applications to micro services architectures
  • Advise on implementing AWS best practices


Our Consultants work with enterprise customers locally, regionally and potentially domestically. As such, Consultants must have the ability to travel to client locations to sell and deliver professional services as needed.

  • Master's degree in Computer Science or related technical field
  • Demonstrated success as a software developer, application architect, product manager, CTO, or consultant working with various platforms
  • Architecting, designing and developing applications on the AWS platform
  • Designing and building application using Container and serverless technologies
  • Experience architecting highly available systems that utilize load balancing, horizontal scalability and high availability

  • Configuration Management platforms (e.g. Chef, Puppet, Salt, or Ansible)
  • Strong practical application development experience on Linux and Windows-based systems
  • Presenting at public events such as technology conferences, hackathons, etc
