Job Title: Architect

What follows is from an actual job opportunity that was presented to me. It has been edited for brevity and to remove identifying information. I also cleaned up typos and broken grammar (recruiters apparently never read these things before sending them to candidates).

  • Drive Solution Architectures for high performance and very highly scalable platforms.
  • Collaborate with key Telecommunication Architecture on definition of delivery of solution.
  • Participate in Joint Application Design/Requirements sessions
