Job Description

RESPONSIBILITIES:
Kforce has a client that is seeking a Senior Platform Architect in Austin, TX.

Your Impact:
Great products need great architecture. As a Platform Software Architect, you'll help design and build the architecture that scales the business and can be confidently relied on. We are hiring people that approach design from a systems perspective and aspire to craft their systems well. A great candidate can deliver real customer value while pursuing architecture quality in availability, scalability, interoperability, modifiability, performance, security, and testability.

Key Tasks:
Designing, implementing, and operating platform-wide services such as:
* Transactional or eventually consistent stores that provide well-encapsulated domain object semantics
* Domain and data modeling that provides efficiency, scalability, and flexibility
* Highly scalable and crazy performant search systems
* Event Bus and Event Sourcing capabilities that provide business and engineering leverage and efficiencies
* Orchestrated scale out data pipelines that can leverage serverless and containerized compute that balances cost, latency, and duration
* Algorithmically intensive data engines that operate on streaming, large, or multi-tenant datasets

REQUIREMENTS:
* 7+ years of relevant platform development experience
* The ability to reason about and communicate external and internal architectural perspectives of well-encapsulated systems (e.g., Service Oriented Architecture, Docker-based Services, microservices)
* Experience with some amount of 'Big Data' technologies such as: Elasticsearch, NoSQL Stores, Kafka, Columnar Databases, DataFlow or Pipeline Systems, Graph DataStores
* Experience with design, implementation, and operation of data-intensive, distributed systems (The book, Designing Data-Intensive Applications, is a good reference)
* Embrace the discipline of Site Reliability Engineering
* Experience using Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment (CI/CD) with an emphasis on a well-maintained testing pyramid
* Experience designing and operating software in a Cloud Provider such as AWS, Azure, or Google Cloud Platform

Even Better If You Have:
* Experience using Feature or Release Toggles as a code branching strategy
* Experience modifying and operating multi-tenant systems
* Knowledge about algorithm development for intensive pipeline processing systems
* An understanding of how to develop from a Security Perspective
