Senior Software Architect

Location: Austin, TX

Type: Full Time

Min. Experience: Experienced

No job description can adequately describe a job, your experience filling it, or the career growth possible through it.  Company co-founder, Jeffrey Palermo, has a track record of growing employees.  Though the description below necessarily has some buzz words in it, this is an attempt at a description of this company and position.

Clear Measure, Inc. is a custom software company co-founded by Jeffrey Palermo.  This company provides the full breadth of custom software services.  Interacting at the executive level, we translate business objectives into reality through custom software.  In this job, you will:

  • Participate in a "sales engineer" capacity to help determine what services to propose to prospective clients.
  • Interact with executives, including CEOs, to provide them guidance on how to get more value out of their custom systems and internal development organizations.
  • Learn and evaluate the full breadth of available Microsoft and complementary technologies and make choices for the benefit of our clients.
  • Develop custom software (yep, lots of coding - C#, JavaScript, SQL, and whatever other languages that come and go)
  • Guide developers and development teams, whether they be contracted or hired.
  • Leverage your professional network to get things done (a large LinkedIn network indicates you already do this)

Here are some traits that will be expected:

  • Humble, generally nice person, servant attitude, earning the trust of clients and everyone you meet.
  • You want the best thing for the client, even if the best thing is to end our project with them.
  • You have just as much passion for their business objectives as you do about the technology used to achieve them.
  • You are a passionate, voracious continuous learner.  You naturally have kept up with the latest trends, technologies and tools in the industry.
  • You naturally find yourself teaching others (blogging, speaking, mentoring, giving advice on twitter, etc)
  • Your background is one of programming.
  • Continuous professional networking.
  • Has experience supervising, guiding, or mentoring developers.

Finally, this position needs an ambitious, talented, and experienced professional.  Even so, this position is a tremendous opportunity for professional growth.  There will be constant change, but one thing is certain.  You will learn faster at Clear Measure than you will anywhere else.  

If you are an ambitious person who has always dreamed of being an architect, please apply.  The best architects started out as the best developers.  If you are currently a developer looking for the next step in your career, this may be for you.  In my mind, an architect is a developer as well.
