  • Deep experience with solution architecture, working specifically with full stack solutions (.net, MEAN etc.), RESTful services, and large legacy application portfolios, in both monolithic and micro-services contexts
  • Solid understanding of modern data architectures (e.g. event driven architectures, data democratization, platform approaches to support ML/AI at scale, stream processing, etc.)
  • Strong understanding of the entire data discipline including structured / unstructured data, large dataset management, data modeling, data quality, and making data consumable
