A top client of ours in the Alpharetta area is looking to bring on a couple Solution Architects for a 6 month contract to hire basis. If interested, please email me at mmcdill at apexsystemsinc.com.
We are currently looking for senior level solutions architects who have a passion for designing and building new applications and working with conventional as well as emerging technologies. We place heavy focus on recruiting only those who enjoy writing code, can express technical opinions, solve problems and can contribute to our common vision to maintain our significant lead in the marketplace.
>From technical standpoint, our emphasis is on building applications that are simple, clean and represent the letter and spirit of lightweight application architecture. Our technical environment is diverse, employing both conventional and emerging technologies such as Java 5/6, Freemarker, JQuery, iBatis, Spring/Spring MVC, Puppet, Python, Linux and Oracle. Likewise, we do not employ certain technologies that we feel are heavy and create unnecessary complexity.
Collaborate with members of the design team both technical as well as business owners to identify requirements and design new products or extensions to existing products.
Produce application prototypes with sufficient detail to allow others in the development team to complete the development work.
Provide technical oversight to the development process including code reviews and mentoring of the technical team.

Exhibit knowledge and experience in pragmatic application design and patterns. Must be experienced in design patterns associated with lightweight application architectures. In addition, candidates must be comfortable working across diverse applications including web interfaces, real-time systems and batch applications.
Must exhibit high personal standards and design practices for developing applications and components that are clean, cohesive, decoupled and configurable. Candidates must be comfortable providing unit tests and documentation (in the code and outside of it) with each solution.
Determine flaws in existing applications/designs and propose alternatives. Must be able to quickly identify the source of bugs, for example, and resolve them in the proper way
Must exhibit a solid understanding of conventional development platforms, tools and concepts including Java/JEE, Oracle/RDBMS, JDBC/ORM, Transaction management, aspect oriented development, Spring, web services/API development, real-time applications/concurrency. Candidates must also be able to absorb new ideas and technologies quickly and must be able to apply these technologies to a problem domain in a way that is both practical and reflects best practices.
Must be comfortable working in an agile environment and using tools like JIRA to track and communicate the status of tasks.
Candidates must be efficient and productive with common development tools and environments such as Eclipse IDE, Ant, JBoss/Tomcat, Linux, Subversion and relational databases, such as Oracle. Must exhibit the ability to configure your local machine and work independently.
