Senior Public Cloud Solutions Architect

In light of these unprecedented times, Softchoice is committed to the safety of our candidates and our employees. With that in mind, we have implemented virtual interviewing for all candidates.

We understand that you may need to interview with distractions around you (such as children or furry friends) and we will most likely be doing the same! For those joining Orange Nation, we will be onboarding all new employees remotely.

Rest assured, though, that offering a human and inspiring onboarding experience is our top priority.

Challenge customers to build agile infrastructures solutions through the adoption of emerging cloud technologies as part of their overall Hybrid IT transformation.

Most people in your circle don’t really know what you do for a living. If only they could be a fly on the wall when you walk into a room of seasoned cloud and data center professionals, listen, observe and then whiteboard ideas and options that they may not have considered with their technical initiative.

Ok, let’s face it, you would have lost most of them at data center ! That’s ok we know exactly what you can do. You have been there when projects have gone wrong as you were likely the person called on by others to explain what could have been done differently and now have the opportunity to re-architect future options.

Your expertise is something to be in awe of and quite frankly, our sales team will be clamoring for your time to get you in front of their customers.

Your techy friends consider you a strong technologist with a deep understanding of cloud and emerging cloud solutions and strategies.

Together you trade stories on innovative solutions you have mapped out and some of the pitfalls you know of that can derail some of the best-planned projects.

We know you know how to make a difference! We want to provide you the canvas to display your ideas and proven successes and help make a difference for our customers.

As our Sr. Cloud Solutions Architect, you will drive the :

  • Architecture and design of holistic cloud solutions with focus on emerging cloud solutions and technologies to best address business challenges around data and application modernization (i.

  • Are inquisitive, asking the right question at the right time. Your questions are to provoke thought leadership and enable you to better understand.
