Senior Enterprise Solution Architect

FULL TIME / Hybrid
Canada / Toronto

Hi, my name is Jane Chae, the CTO at Versett. We are looking for a Senior Enterprise Solution Architect to join our growing team. As a member of a small team, the right person is someone who isn’t afraid to dig into hard problems in a variety of spaces. You might be working on building a new digital-first insurance business in the Caribbean market one day, and thinking through how to improve the rollout of 5G in Canada the next.
You’ll be joining us at an exciting time as we plot the future growth of the team. We touch most projects at Versett, work closely with the New Business team, and put out thoughtful research and resources to grow the Versett name.

Versett is the ‘team behind the team’ of successful apps, software and platforms around the world with clients like American Express, TD Bank, and Getty Images. Each month, millions of people use the platforms, apps, and tools we have built.

At Versett, we have a mission to be the preferred partners of ambitious organizations looking to grow in the modern technology-driven economy. We accomplish this by partnering client teams with our dedicated product teams to produce world class solutions. Each client initiative we take on expects that we move the needle in a meaningful way, which requires each team member to act primarily as a consultant rather than an order taker. Our development group plays a critical role in the definition and delivery of our partner engagements. We rely on our Solutions Architects to determine how to build, and more importantly when to build versus finding solutions that require no code.

As the Senior Enterprise Solution Architect, you will provide technical and business domain leadership throughout the software development lifecycle, from Pre-sales to architecture design, development and deployment, based on your experience with modern cutting edge technologies.

You will also help elevate the engineering on the team, through mentorship and setting the bar for what quality software looks like. Delivering quality code across our technical stack, you will work cross functionally with Product Design led by Chris Govias and Strategy led by Hamilton Jones to build scalable and reliable solutions positively impacting our client’s businesses. Our team is tight-knit and built on the philosophy of "learn better, faster". Versett was founded on a shared vision of a place where we can create meaningful work collaboratively, while continuing to grow and learn as individuals.

Versett works globally and we are looking to build our team in Calgary, AB and Toronto, ON.
