THE ROLE

As Cloud Architect at Datatonic you will shape the architecture for key projects. You'll be engaging with our customers and prospects to provide pre & post sales architectural advice and thought leadership for machine learning, analytics, and data migration projects. In addition to that, you will be helping us to build out the architectural side of our next-generation machine learning products.

While the position is a hands-on technical role, we'd be particularly interested to find candidates with a desire to lead projects and take an active role in leading client discussions. Your responsibilities will involve building trusted relationships with prospects, finding creative ways to solve problems, scoping projects, and overseeing the delivery of these engagements.

This is an exceptional chance for seasoned cloud technology professionals who wish to be part of a team of AI and data experts. In this customer-facing role, you will closely collaborate with both business and technical professionals. 

Successful candidates will bring multiple years of experience with cloud platforms like Google Cloud or AWS, along with a demonstrated expertise or strong understanding of machine learning and AI. Ideally, you'll have served as an SME in designing and migrating applications to live in the cloud, working with complex cloud deployments, and being adept at the design and implementation of complex platforms.

If you are transitioning from a role as a data engineer or ML engineer and have a passion for cloud architecture, customer engagement, and technical pre-sales, this position could also be an excellent fit for you.

 

In the role of Cloud Architect at Datatonic, your responsibilities include:

  • Leveraging cutting-edge and scalable data processing and cloud technologies to drive innovation.
  • Collaborating with our customers to craft state-of-the-art solutions that address their unique needs.
  • Supporting our sales teams by offering technical insights to help design and scope solutions for even the most challenging client requirements.
  • Conducting architecture reviews for our key clients, identifying opportunities for improvement, and sharing recommendations with senior client stakeholders.
  • Contributing to our internal knowledge base, aiding in the development of valuable collateral and thought leadership.
  • Thriving in an agile and dynamic environment, working alongside a tight-knit team of data scientists, machine learning experts, data analysts, and data engineers.
  • Serving as a leader and mentor to other team members, fostering professional growth.
  • Collaborating closely with our technology partners, including Google Cloud, dbt Labs, and Looker.
  • Playing a pivotal role in shaping the architecture team at Datatonic, driving innovation and excellence.

  • Have the ability to present concepts in an authoritative and clear manner to customers through white-boarding, presentations, and proposals
  • Cultivate and nurture relationships with key external stakeholders at various business levels.
  • Bring experience in technical pre-sales, with the ability to advocate for groundbreaking proposals.

  • Demonstrated proficiency in designing and building analytical products using tools like Looker, Tableau, PowerBI, Qlik, and similar platforms.
