Job Summary

We are looking for a different type of architect! This isn’t about drawing boxes and arrows (although, yes, you still have to do that too); it’s about providing technology leadership and filling in technical gaps while having fun at the same time.

Architecture in Travelers Business Insurance is demanding. We have hundreds of applications, tens of strategies, and one architecture team to provide IT guidance. This guidance takes on many forms: digging into code, defining system behavior, establishing technical roadmaps, partnering with the business to understand requirements, or communicating with senior leadership.

Our candidate is current with technology trends (cloud native, micro-services, functional programming), codes when required, thinks strategically, executes on a vision, and has a positive attitude with a sense of humor.

Primary Job Duties & Responsibilities

Think strategically about solutions, and work to accomplish them. Define roadmaps, help build strong teams, measure the IT/business benefit to a solution, and possess a willingness to change course in the face of new information.

Code (when applicable). You know your way around design patterns, object oriented and functional paradigms. You won’t always be coding but you aren't afraid to roll up your sleeves if required. (We are primarily a JavaScript / C# / Java shop)

Stay current with technology trends: cloud native, micro services, functional programming, big data, etc…

Work with external partners / vendors to evaluate products, staff resources, and design solutions
