Job Description

Overview

LSAC is a not-for profit organization whose mission is to advance law and justice by encouraging diverse, talented individuals to study law and by supporting their enrollment and learning journeys from prelaw through practice. LSAC provides products and services that support candidates and schools throughout the law school admission process, and innovative solutions to expand and diversify the range of prelaw students, enhance student outcomes in law school, and support legal professionals throughout their careers. 

 

Summary of Position:

The Solutions Architect – Cloud is a strategic designer and planner of solutions in LSAC’s technology environment.  The Solutions Architect – Cloud works with LSAC’s business and technology units to design enterprise solutions, applications and processes that solve business needs and integrate with other systems.  The duties of this position include gathering requirements, developing specifications, and determining project scope in order to deliver workflow and solution design to achieve defined benefits.  The architect will lead the initiative from ideation to completion—either through implementation or a business decision to forgo the design.  This includes assigning project managers, working with business units, engaging technical resources and managing vendors.  The Solutions Architect – Cloud provides appropriate escalation of issues, solution knowledge and engagement support. This includes resolving escalated problems and issues using solution knowledge and expertise, while resolving complex client concerns raised during installation, operation, maintenance or solution application.  Includes evaluating potential risks and defects, analyzing specifications and customization of the application while providing recommendations on disaster recovery, data integrity, security of the application, as well as evaluate alternatives.  Responsibilities will include creating technical documents relating to application architecture, design steps, integration processes and testing procedures to ensure a seamless integration of new and existing systems. 

 

The focus of this position is to enable a cloud-first mindset for future technology investments/designs. The architect will have to have subject matter expertise in cloud technologies and design.  As such, a heavy focus is required to build out, maintain and improve the framework of our Microsoft Azure footprint, including: cloud governance plan, standards (i.e. naming, specifications, etc.), network topology, storage solutions, and adoption of platform as a service.  The architect will work closely with the Infrastructure, Support and Software Development organizations to consult, design and implement solutions in support of Agile and Continuous Deployment processes.  An emphasis on automating workloads and reducing intervention is desired wherever appropriate.  Significant focus on Cloud Security applications and processes will be paramount.  Engineering work to implement and/or support solutions will be required.  Initiatives outside of cloud computing may be assigned by the Managing Solution Architect as necessary.  The architect will also mentor and train engineers on cloud computing technologies, processes and procedures.  Success in this role will require a blend of engineering, analytical, architectural, leadership, and soft skills.
