In your role as Solutions Architect, you will help us achieve our goals and deliver success on behalf of our customers by owning the solution as the main technical subject matter expert for both the customer and Featurespace delivery team throughout the delivery lifecycle. You’ll ensure that the customer gets what they have contracted for and has been designed, that it is comprehensively tested and implemented successfully in a way that delivers value to their business.

You will apply strong solution expertise as well as a solid understanding of business processes, to design and deliver high quality projects and support our customers in the successful adoption of ARIC.
