General Description

The Solutions Architect will lead the architectural definition and validation for our clients.

He/she will also manage the relationship with technical stakeholders (architects, developers, and operations teams) from the customer side.

We are looking for people passionate about technology, and the positive impact that its proper use may cause to businesses.

Is this you? 

If so, you have a broad understanding of complex distributed architectures, products, and frameworks.

More importantly, you have a track record of using your knowledge to design resilient, scalable and highly available (HA) solutions for large and complex enterprises.

You are a quick learner, understand that listening is as important as speaking, and you feel excited about actively collaborating on new solutions during whiteboard sessions.


Pre-sales: working together with our business team, you will help to understand our prospects’ business challenges and to define the best technical approach and candidate solution to address functional and non-functional requirements.

Architecture definition: you will understand the business requirements (both functional and non-functional) and design the best architecture for the customer based on your experience. We expect you to have a lot of autonomy, CI&T will support you when needed though.

Architecture management: you will be required to plan and manage technical tasks to validate the designed architecture. You'll work together with a project manager, but we expect autonomy to identify and prioritize tasks, and manage blocks.

Trusted advisor: we expect you to be good with the relationship with customers, becoming a trusted advisor at some point. CI&T offices will always be available for you, but many times you will be required to work from the client's office.
