About the Role:
ALICE solves the complex logistics of running every departments in a hotel through a unified platform. We are looking for a Software Architect to drive the next generation of ALICE products and their technical architecture.
The ideal candidate is a structured thinker who can synthesize diverse feedback and turn a vision into a clear plan of action as well as an expert hands-on technologist who knows how to build scalable, reliable, and fault-tolerant distributed systems. You stay up-to-date with the latest architectural trends.
The Software Architect is responsible for designing ALICE's Core architecture as well as of all of its subsystems with our engineering team and serves as a coach during implementation. You will be responsible for breaking down large projects into smaller development tasks, estimating effort, writing technical specs that are deep & concise (agile) and discussing them with the engineers. You will also be building POCs (proof of concept) and kicking off new innovative and exciting projects leveraging different services APIs, libraries and tools.
This is an opportunity to create ideas and shepherd them through to a live product, as well as improving our core architecture for growth, reliability and performance. We are a small team with a big vision, and this is a chance to see how a product comes to life from the ground up.
Our front end stack is AngularJS. Our backend is Java, Groovy/Grails, Spring MVC, and Hibernate.
