Full-time
Overview

Cognizant is a strategic partner to the Fortune 2,000, helping the world's most influential companies to build software and solutions, empowering our clients' businesses and enabling their competitive advantages. Most recently we’ve come to truly understand the ways in which software is eating the world. This creates an opportunity for us to reinvent the mode in which we execute with our clients. As a result, Cognizant now finds itself at the intersection of business value, technology and the Silicon Valley style of execution. What you may already identify as Lean Startup methodologies, Extreme Programming (XP), DevOps, etc., we take a step further in order to hyper-focus on velocity and high-performance engineering. The competitive advantage this capability provides is enormous—enabling faster feature time to market, increased customer satisfaction and exponential employee productivity, all while allowing the organization to win in the marketplace by keeping our clients, their customers, and all users omnipresent in everything we do. We are forging the way for what's next in the Digital Economy.

You …
You are passionate about assessing and designing IT architecture strategies for cloud and PaaS platforms that make a difference for users and businesses alike. You have strong design and architecture experience by analysis of existing environments to identify deficiencies and solutions for improvement, excellent communication skills, are technically fluent and have a good understanding of Cloud platforms. You are responsible for creating Digital technology solution and program roadmap by collaborating with strategy and design consultants. You enjoy working collaboratively with designers and engineers on small co-located teams. You’re passionate about your craft, and enjoy helping others develop as architects. You are comfortable with ambiguity and moving forward with imperfect information. You excel at leading without authority, effectively aligning team members as well as client stakeholders and executives. You judge your success by the success of your team and the happiness of our clients. Work/life balance is important to you: isn’t just something that we want you to have, but something we need you to teach to our clients.

Your Day

We pair, all day, every day because we know it delivers remarkable results. We practice and teach an approach to architecture that is applicable across industries and organizations, so you’ll experience all types of teams, industries and products. And we believe in working at a sustainable pace – you’ll typically work hard for 8 hours each day, but then you’re off work to relax, recharge and refocus.
