Position at VMLY&R

At VMLY&R, we create connected brands. We resist the usual ways of seeing, doing and thinking — harnessing creativity, technology and culture — to reimagine the entire connected consumer experience. Our goal? To create work that becomes part of people’s lives, to drive value for our clients and, in the best of cases, to impact the world.

Operations Architects live to see amazing experiences delivered in the real world. They see the necessity of automation for supporting complex applications at scale. They relentlessly optimize processes to make things safer and faster. They enjoy working in cross functional teams to design and deliver resilient and secure solutions. They are always learning and actively seek to understand industry trends anticipating the building blocks and tools necessary to deliver world class experiences. As a part of a practice, they create space to share opportunities and successes building up a culture of collaboration that focuses on learning rather than blame. They investigate, experiment, and report conclusions to make the solution clear for the next person on the path.

You will partner with other architects to design solutions choosing needed cloud offerings, software and services. Review architectural decisions of other projects.
