APPLICATION ARCHITECT3 MONTH CONTRACT TO PERMSt. Petersburg, FLPrefer local candidates but will consider paying expenses for those outside of the areaNo third parties, no sponsorship.The digital factory group is transforming the existing ecosystem of applications that govern all the activities on the shop floor from legacy monolithic applications towards a distributed system of microservices. This drive comes from the need to be more responsive on the shop floor to changing customer demand and business models as we build the Factory of the Future. The application architect is a key role responsible for collaborating with other application architects to set the architectural direction and ensure their area(s) of responsibility conform to that direction.

In this role you will be embedded in a scrum team and responsible for one of our primary applications. You will need to gain an understanding of the domain, the core value proposition of the application, and build a roadmap for its transformation in compliance with the overall technical direction of the entire program. You must be hands on in the codebase as well as capable of thinking at a higher-level systems perspective. You are also responsible for working with the development teams, working with the tech leads to evaluate skills, and ensuring the teams are on-board and capable of executing the technical vision for the application.


  • Work with the PO and SM to understand the product to be developed and the high-level features needed and prioritize the work to ensure necessary technical enablers are in place before work starts on new functional stories.
  • Work with senior architects to create high-level architecture and solutions that are flexible to cater to changing needs as the sprints. Create technical enabler user stories to ensure an architecturally correct approach to implementing the feature.
  • Bridge the gap between the PO and the development teams by working with the PO team regularly to make sure both understand how the solution is going to be implemented. Discuss the drawbacks and advantages.
  • Take a pragmatic approach to arrive at a solution that fits both the business and the technical needs of the system. Also, be open for new ideas from both PO and developers.
  • Understand the teams skills. Support, mentor, and guide the development team as they adopt new technologies and methodologies.
  • Based on the teams skills, decide on technology stack to be used for the product. Create prototypes to evaluate technology choices.
  • Decide on the tooling, for instance what tools will be used by the developers to build the project.
  • Manage the quality of the code and technical debt. Decide on what code quality enforcement needs to exist.
  • After the development team has completed implementation, code review their work, and provide constructive feedback for improvement.
