As a Digital Solutions Architect, you work across many different areas within digital commerce where the end goal is to help our clients meet their business objectives. You're typically engaged in project pre-studies (Discovery), pre-sales, and ad-hoc client consulting assignments. In addition, you play an essential role in gathering and documenting technical and business requirements and defining and developing technical solutions that align with client business goals and objectives. Finally, as an expert on the technology stack and architecture, you work across our complete platform offering and design solutions for smaller and larger multi-platform implementations.

Depending on your background, you might be a Subject Matter expert yourself.
