Cox Automotive, a subsidiary of Cox Enterprises, is seeking a Principal
Technical Architect to join our team in North Hills, NY.
Have you worked on migrations to AWS? Are you looking to use your extensive AWS experience to put your fingerprint on our successful move from on-premise to AWS? Are you looking to help drive direction to modernizing the stack once we get to AWS through the use of native AWS services? We are looking for someone with AWS experience to positively influence our short-term lift-and-shift strategy followed up by modernization through AWS native solutions.

Cox Automotive offers the chance to take a leading role in the migration of their F&I Solutions platform to AWS with subsequent modernization. We want to get out of our data centers into AWS so that we can move quickly, but we also need to be out of the datacenters quickly. Once this move is complete you will continue to help teams to adopt AWS best practices into their development lifecycle. Coaching and the ability to influence your engineering peers in the proper and best way to deliver their services, while taking into account their need to meet business timelines is important. Collaboration with your architect, engineering and leadership peers is part of your DNA. We do not expect you to have the right answer, or even an answer in all situations, but you leverage the knowledge of your peers and teams to make the best informed design decisions.

Cox Enterprises is a family-run operation that began nearly 120 years ago. As part of this great family business, we treat our team members and clients like they're just that - family. This atmosphere has been instrumental to our success and has shaped our willingness to fuel epic innovation, drive unprecedented growth and deliver the mind-blowing, needle-moving, connected experience we promise.

Cox Automotive is transforming the way the world buys, sells, owns and uses cars. Come join the transformation!
