Job Description

Solutions Architect (Applications), VMware App Navigator

About Us

Cloud transformation is accelerating as organizations everywhere aggressively move toward public and hybrid cloud, edge and 5G technologies to compete and win in the digital age. Of course, change is hard and careful planning is necessary. But, too often that planning is slow, analysis is fraught with assumptions and (let’s face it) often ends up being wrong.

VMware Portfolio Navigator is a service offering created in the belief that when change is hard, iteration is best. We deliver using specialized techniques and tooling that help our consultants, working alongside customers, enable tangible results in days and weeks, not months and years. VMware is doubling down on this approach and growing our team of solution and program architects. We are looking for collaborative people with a passion for customer enablement and outcomes to lead short and impactful Navigator engagements that focus across a broad spectrum of cloud application and platform technologies.

About You

You are a hands-on software architect with a passion for developing high-quality, reliable and maintainable software. You like working side by side with product managers, designers, and client stakeholders; collaborating to understand problems, and planning solutions that deliver impactful returns. You love change and feel energized working in new situations with new people. You’re agile and retrospective, and not afraid to identify what we’re doing wrong so we can fix it, and what we're doing right so we can improve on it. Above all, you judge your success by the success of your team and the happiness of our customers.

What You’ll Be Doing

As a Solutions Architect, you will pair with client architects, developers, engineers and stakeholders, to understand existing systems and paths to production, to best determine an incremental path to cloud transformation. You will use a variety of automated tools, facilitate customer workshops, get hands-on with existing application and pipeline code, and define tangible paths forward that deliver measured efficiencies. You will collaborate closely with VMware colleagues and look to enable customer people on our practices throughout engagement.

Portfolio Navigator roles are highly collaborative, with 80% of time spent in direct, 1:1 pairing or larger team collaboration. During the COVID-19 crisis, this collaboration is managed remotely, with the expectation that face-to-face engagement in a VMware or customer office will be required once the crisis is resolved. At this future date, you may be asked to travel up to 50% of the time.

You Will Be Responsible For

  • Facilitating workshops, using Domain Driven Design and agile techniques to understand system design and plan future state architectures

  • Creating documentation, code artifacts and other customer-facing assets that accomplish intended project objectives

  • Pair programming with clients and other VMware people to build/modernize software based on the team’s backlog

  • Working with customer people to enable them in application modernization practices

  • Contributing back to the VMware team through mentorship, giving talks, and experience reports

Required Skills and Experience

  • You are an Agile practitioner, familiar with extreme programming, test driven development, pairing, continuous integration, continuous delivery, and related techniques

  • You are a great written and verbal communicator, capable of public speaking and presenting in front of customers, at user groups, etc.

  • 10+ years of Software Development experience in a variety of programming languages

  • Have an understanding of – or implementation experience in – building Twelve-Factor applications, and using Domain Driven Design

  • Experience building distributed / service oriented / microservice-style and cloud based application architectures

  • Experience building enterprise applications, including integration with COTS systems

  • Experience leading large development teams or leading complex product development

  • Experience modernizing legacy systems in languages such as Java or C#/.NET

  • Experience in training, mentoring and/or upskilling others

  • Passion for growing your skills, tackling interesting work and challenging problems

  • Experience with Continuous Integration (CI) tools

  • Up to 50% travel is expected in this role

  • Ability to Work From Home until sufficient resolution of the COVID-19 Crisis

Desired Skills and Experience

Below is a list of skills we value. This is not a checklist. If you have some of these skills, and want to grow into others, then we want to hear from you.

  • Experience supporting production systems using Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) practices

  • Experience with Kubernetes or related automation / orchestration tools

  • Some experience working with SAML, OAuth 2, Active Directory

  • Experience with Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud or OpenStack

  • Experience with a platform as a service product such as Cloud Foundry, Heroku, Elastic Beanstalk, or similar

  • Solid understanding of systems monitoring, alerting and analytics
