Solution Architect
Ref No.: 18-34733
Location: Denver, Colorado
Position Type:Contract
Start Date: 05/18/2018
 Title: Solution Architect or Technical Consultant or Technical Project Manager (title does not really matter as compared to responsibilities)
Location: Denver, CO
Duration: long term, but will do renewal every 6 months
Job duties:
  • Works with customers and prospects to understand and analyze their business and make recommendations and implement solutions to enhance the business.
  • Responsible for presenting and explaining models, communicating industry best practices, evaluating risk cost versus reward tradeoffs based on client-specific data.
  • Conduct research in regards to industry trends and adapt/develop existing solutions and new solutions in response to those trends. Partner with sales and other client-facing groups to develop, price, and present solutions to clients and prospects for both feedback and implementation.
  • Minimum B.S., prefer M.S., in Computer Science or similar technical field. 
  • Depending on the level 5-10+ years of experience designing and building custom applications, preferably under a consulting model.
  • Able to define requirements and produce documentation (business analysis); design, architect, implement, and test software solutions (development); project management, team and client relationship management, cross- and up-sell products and services, provide ongoing support (consulting).
  • In our capacity as consultants a single person often acts as the 'one man band' doing all of the above components to varying degrees depending on the client and contract.
  • Our core programming language is similar to Lisp, and while we can provide training there is a fair learning curve.  ARTScript and Lisp are functional programming languages as opposed to procedural languages such as Java and C++.  It is a bit of a different mindset.
  • The ideal candidate would have all of the above plus experience with both Expert System implementations and with financial services/mortgage origination (i.e. an ex-MindBox, FICO/Blaze, ILOG consultant).  Less ideal would be one or the other.
Above are jd (job duties and qualifications from hiring manager).
However, please consider my edited jd below:
  • 7+ experience of development experience
  • Experience in functional programming languages (as opposed to procedural languages)
  • Exceptional communication and articulation skills
  • Client facing experience
  • Experience in Mortgage domain
  • Experience in Mindbox or FICO/Blaze or ILOG
  • Experience in Lisp and/or ARTScript is ideal
