Enterprise Architect - Remote US

Consultant & Consumer ExperienceHybrid Remote, San Ramon, California


Description

The Opportunity

R+F is an industry leading skin care company whose motto is “Life Changing Skin Care”.  Our field of consultants influence and enhance lives daily.  In 10 years, we’ve managed to grow our business to almost $2B annually in sales and expand within 2 countries.  With rapid growth has come some tradeoffs in our technology ecosystem and we need great people to transition R+F to a mature, stable and growth sustainable technology ecosystem. 

If you’d like to work without the long commute, our 2 SF Bay Area offices are in San Francisco, blocks from Embarcadero and BART and, our San Ramon office is in a beautiful setting in Bishop Ranch next to the new City Central shopping center.  We also have an emergent hybrid work scenario which promotes remote work!

We are looking for an Enterprise Architect who can help mature our technology discipline whilst simultaneously working with solution architects to help drive our critical programs and projects.  It’s a rare opportunity to be on the ground floor of a growing company which desires maturity balanced with the ability to be agile and pivot quickly when business requires.  Here at R+F we believe Enterprise Architecture is not a static organizational construct or operates as an Ivory Tower.  Instead EA is an agile construct that aligns itself to the maturity of the organization, and which shapes our priorities.  Our EA is actively engaged with our business and transitioning to an operating model that isn’t governance focused but instead works collaboratively to shape our technology ecosystem and trajectory and align programs to the target state.

Our ideal candidate has worked up through the ranks, typically as a programmer/DB admin/SysOps – solution/data architect to Enterprise Architect.  We need solid technology acumen combined with the ability to design, formulate and effectively articulate our technology strategy and vision.  Good social and communication skills are essential, no wallflowers needed.  However, you do need to have tactfulness and ability to influence collaboratively without creating unnecessary friction.  It’s a challenging role, but you’ll have the authority and organizational backing to help us mature our practice and our technology ecosystem.
