Crossover
Chief Software Architect ($100K/year) - Remote Work

Work from home

Experience: 8-18 Years
Openings: 10+
Job Description

As a Chief Software Architect, you can expect to be a member of one of our central assembly line teams such as faster, easier, code cleanup, feature, or auto unit test team. You may also be in the role of a product Chief Architect, responsible for a product’s quality and weekly release.

If you are working in the code cleanup team you have a great responsibility to increase the quality of the code of existing products. You will do this by identifying anti-patterns and solving them, implementing microservices, and ensuring products follow SOLID coding principles.

In the auto unit test team you will generate unit tests using automation. As part of this team you can expect to build, extend, and introduce new tools to improve automated test generation. One of the roles of a Chief Architect within the bulk unit test team is to find patterns that can be applied to any coding project.

As a member of the easier team you will be assisting in the rebuild of the user interface of legacy products to a standard tech stack. This means you will build new screens with a modern UI and enhanced usability. You will also create the REST API layer required to connect the new UI with the product legacy backend and business logic. You will also be required to deliver UI unit tests, REST API unit tests and integration tests, and functional browser compatibility testing.

Chief Software Architects will have daily and weekly targets to work against. We measure the quality of work through our First Time Acceptance rate, meaning that the Product Chief Architects accept the work delivered by the engineers immediately without having to ask for a rework.

In all cases, you will have aggressive daily and weekly targets to work against and you can expect to receive daily and weekly feedback about your performance. The regular feedback is used to help you improve immediately and to resolve blockers which may be slowing down your performance.
