Job Summary:As a Lead Solution Architect you have an infinite curiosity about the latest software solutions, applications and technologies. This role will fill a critical need in helping to bridge the gap between the constraints of legacy systems, new technology strategy, business and project needs by designing solutions that balance all of these sometimes conflicting priorities. You will use your deep understanding of software frameworks, architectures and patterns to design, guide and sometimes implement proofs of concept and production solutions that deliver new features, functionality and innovative products into our environment. You will be an important part of a motivated team where we’ll be looking for you to introduce technologies, collaborate with the team to drive application architecture, software and solutions quality, and make sure we are doing the right thing by our users. This is a critical role on what will be many high profile projects.
We want someone who has grown up through the software development ranks - possessing 7+ years’ experience in designing and architecting highly scalable, reusable, and performant applications using object oriented languages such as Java and C#. This person would possess deep skills in server side technology; common frameworks like Spring, Hibernate, and Apache Camel; and hands on relational and NoSQL database experience. While The Walt Disney Company is a large company, ideally, we’d like you to have some previous experience in a U.S. startup environment and be comfortable performing multiple roles. We strive to get things done quickly, at high quality, and we are committed to the agile methodology. Our work is guided by lean principles (looking at value and steering clear of waste; not doing anything ‘for the sake of doing it’).
We’re looking for a passionate, impactful, technical leader who wants to come here to do their very best work, make their mark, and add their chapter to the long and storied history of The Walt Disney Company; someone who holds themselves and their teammates accountable in a professional, collaborative manner; a collaborative technologist who seeks to bring the best out in themselves and those around them; who can provide a fresh perspective and innovative insight to our initiatives.
