Platform Architect : Admin
EIS is undergoing an accelerated technology transformation, moving from a traditional enterprise:scale n:tier web application to a cloud:native micro services architecture on AWS. We have about 400 skilled developers in various stages of this transformation. Our technology strategy is to leverage Amazon public cloud capabilities and managed services to focus our people on writing code that differentiates us in the marketplace, at maximum velocity. We are embracing cutting:edge development practices including domain:driven design, continuous operation, DevSecOps, continuous delivery, a data:driven culture, and SAFe.
The Platform Architecture team works with all of our feature teams, program teams, Solution Architects, and Enterprise Architects to design world:class, highly scalable micro services that run on our technology stack, which is based on Spring Boot and Netflix OSS. Those services are shared across multiple products and market domains, so they must be generalized, performant, scalable, and properly instrumented to provide business telemetry, technical metrics to support continuous operation ("you build it, you run it, you own it"), and they must meet non:functional requirements designed for security and supportability.
As our feature teams build and support new applications at a rapid pace, we are looking for an exceptional Platform Architect to help design and develop an impactful underlying platform architecture for the cloud : this will include the implementation of cloud policies, cost optimization, provisioning, monitoring and adoption of telemetry driven CI/CD/CO pipelines. This will a hands:on senior technologist role with responsibilities spanning across new development and operational technology support for all of our products to enable teams to architect and build scalable, resilient, data:driven, cost:aware systems.
Key areas of focus include but are not limited to:
:Domain:driven design of highly performant and scalable micro services
:Leveraging AWS:native services to deliver differentiated functionality
:Best practices for developing shared micro services in support of agility, cloud cost management
:Consulting with peers and stakeholders to make good decisions about how software is built
:Work with peer, program team, and feature teams to decompose a complex administrative administration application currently on .NET with significant SQL Server stored procedures running on:premises to a coherent set of micro services on EIS's reference architecture with a UI aligned with the reference architecture
:Develop and shepherd an incremental migration strategy, focused on continuity of user experience
:Partner with DevSecOps to develop and evolve security and privacy controls in the Admin application and enable automated compliance and reporting
:Individual contributor working as part of the Platform Architecture team and a member of the Platform Program Team
:Translating requirements, expressed as SAFe Capabilities, into Features that serve EBSCO's diverse customer and user base
