 Depending on experience

You’ve done your time in the trenches. Long hours, late nights, a steep learning curve, and now you have the experience to lead. Sharing your expertise is the natural next step; you want a role where you can make a real difference and have a tangible impact on day-to-day operations. From your seat at the table, you’ll advise, assess, and deliver on goals.

Are you nodding? Good — you may be the Chief Software Architect we’re looking for.

Our international client provides online trading services. Their business is so far beyond booming that you might need hearing protection until you get accustomed to the roar of success. In the past four years, their staff count has increased 600 percent. Need a minute to digest that growth? Don’t rest too long — their business volume is expanding even faster. They’ve got a stack of projects that need the right Chief Software Architect to manage their team as they work through these projects, and that’s where you come in.

Day-to-day, you’ll work closely with the Chief Technology Officer. Well-versed in the full stack of software development and cloud technologies, you’ll mentor engineering teams and provide guidance in solving issues. Technical expertise will be balanced with business savvy as you propose system architecture plans that accelerate deployment.

Ideally, you are located in Malaysia. With offices in Malta or Dubai, these countries are also options. Not located in one of these three spots? We still want to hear from you, and so does our client. Strong leaders aren’t tied to a geographic location, so if you’re eager to dive into this exciting challenge, send us your CV today and tell us why!
