Join the Product and Technology team of a dynamic, fast-paced, venture where you will be in charge of the software architecture. Our client delivers end-to-end ground-breaking solutions to a diverse set of customers in target verticals such as automotive, smart communities, and agriculture. As a software architect, your role will be to design, follow and stay on top of the software platform.

  • Stay on top of the software quality by sharing guidelines and rolling automated quality bots
