Job Description

Most software developers, engineers, and architects get to build software systems. Very few get to say with a straight face: “I’m reinventing banking.” Or hospitality, or logistics, or insurance. We’re combining technology, industry expertise, and entrepreneurial experience to massively disrupt our clients’ core businesses. We partner with our clients to propel them into the future and to help create better products and experiences for everyone.

We’re doing this by leveraging the power of new patterns and architectures (Serverless, Microservices, Event Sourcing, etc) and technologies (Kafka, TensorFlow, Node.js, Docker, Go) to build cloud-native style solutions for the enterprise.

Our team is deeply hands-on and prides itself in lead-from-the-front technology thought leaders. Our group Cloud First Design – Enterpise Architecture is the tip of the spear for Cloud Transformation initiatives within Accenture. If you aspire to build a career in next generation software architecture and utilizing next generation technology, Enterprise Architecture may be a great fit for you.
