As a Solutions Architect you love to help, you think outside the box and you love to solve problems. You have a strong technical aptitude, customer-facing experience and a solutions orientated approach. As a technical expert and people person you'll bridge the gap between customer goals and our technology.

Solutions Architects at Permutive are an innovative team of creative problem solvers, who collaborate with clients to understand their challenges and architect solutions. We are at the cross function of business and engineering, helping our clients to maximise the value they get from Permutive.

Our hiring process

We believe three things are important in a hiring process: what we ask you to do during an interview will be as close as possible to what we would ask you to do as part of your job; to provide you with open, honest feedback throughout the process; and to be respectful of your time. As such, our process is:

1. We'll have an initial 30 minute phone call where we'll talk a little about Permutive and the role we're hiring for and you'll talk about yourself, your experience and technology.
2. A one hour interview with our Lead Solutions Architect to go into more details around your experience and skills. We'll discuss specific examples of how you worked with customers and colleagues, what technologies you've used and what your ambitions are.
3. We'll provide you with a take-home technology challenge, and give you a week to complete it. We expect the challenge to take 2-4 hours for most people.
4. Finally there will be a round of on-site interviews:
* You'll spend 1 hour with our Head of Customer Success talking about how you work with customers and your colleagues.
* You'll also meet someone from our New York team to give you a wider context of Permutive, but also to understand how you'll culturally fit into our company.
* You'll meet our founders, and have the opportunity to ask them any questions you have about Permutive, and talk more broadly about our technology and our vision.
* 45 mins with our Lead Solutions Architect to discuss your response to the coding challenge and to discuss any open questions you might have.

5. At this point, if it's appropriate, we'll make an offer


* Very competitive salary
* Stock options (you'll own a piece of the pie)
* Parental Leave Policy entitling new parents up to 26 weeks of leave on full pay
* Weekly lunches and quarterly social events
* Fully stocked office snacks and drinks
* Extensive training and development opportunities
* Unlimited holiday
