You will work with Product teams to ensure fidelity between requirements and solutions. You are joyful in your work, you place a high level of importance on code quality and the engineering practices that deliver quality, and you believe, truly believe, that success for the team is more important than your individual success.

You will be working in a mixed startup/enterprise environment gaining experience with robotics, drones, LIDAR technologies, autonomy, deep neural networks, edge computing, how those technologies are deployed, and most important, how to best serve the big data requirements of these various constituent components, with a strong focus on security, performance, and excellence in execution.

You will be able to look at the next 6 months, year, or 2 years and with a reasonable educational guess and describe the technical debt, showing an understanding and comprehension of the business/product roadmaps, and how your architectural decisions are impacted.

  • Analyze industry trends and emerging technologies to ensure the Data Platform technology roadmap and system architectures are a competitive advantage.
  • Periodically participate in technology assessments of the Data Platform including “build vs. buy”, patent viability, and acquisition due diligence.
  • Develop and maintain the data management architectural roadmap for NBI’s cross-functional capabilities.
  • Lead the design of a Data Platform to ensure the technology roadmap is aligned with the business goals while minimizing technical debt.
  • Works closely with engineering scrum teams.

  • Distributed data platform services, big data platforms.
  • Experience with Data Platforms in service to AI, ML, and CV applications, tools, and techniques, especially in leading or bleeding edge techniques.
  • Experience with Big data analytics and Data Science.
  • Familiarity with "The Architecture Tradeoff Analysis Method" (see or equivalent principles.
  • Experience with edge computing paradigms.
  • Familiarity with cloud providers and on-prem service offering and deployments, for example AWS architecture.
  • Experience with common architecture patterns such as clean architecture, micro-service, deep learning, federated learning, and data lake.
