*Title: System Architect
Location: Basking Ridge, NJ
Length: 6 Months

Manager Notes:
Please verify that candidates match the project skills and requirements

- Experience in both the problem domain, through a thorough understanding of
the requirements, and the software engineering domain. If there is a team,
these qualities can be spread across the team members, but at least one
software architect must provide the global vision for the project.
- Leadership in order to drive the technical effort across the various
teams, and to make critical decisions under pressure and make those
decisions stick. To be effective, the software architect and the project
manager must work closely together, with the software architect leading the
technical issues and the project manager leading the administrative issues.
The software architect must have the authority to make technical decisions.
- Communication to earn trust, to persuade, to motivate, and to mentor. The
software architect cannot lead by decree, only by the consent of the rest of
the project. In order to be effective, the software architect must earn the
respect of the project team, the project manager, the customer, and the user
community, as well as the management team.
- Goal-orientation and Pro-activity with a relentless focus on results. The
software architect is the technical driving force behind the project, not a
visionary or dreamer. The career of a successful software architect is a
long series of sub-optimal decisions made in uncertainty and under pressure.
Only those who can focus on doing what needs to be done will be successful
in this environment of the project.

- Provide global vision for hardware and software architecture of the
managerial reporting and analysis solutions
- Drive technical teams to deliver solutions aligned with the standard
operating environment architecture
- Drive refinement of established development and operational standards
