Who We Are
Kyndryl is a market leader that thinks and acts like a start-up. We design, build, manage, and modernize the mission-critical technology systems that the world depends on every day. So why work at Kyndryl? We are always moving forward – always pushing ourselves to go further in our efforts to build a more equitable, inclusive world for our employees, our customers, and our communities.
Are you ready to take on a ground-floor opportunity and make your mark with a brand-new platform with unstoppable growth potential?
Kyndryl is seeking a passionate and driven Cloud Architect to join our team and break out of the hierarchy to rewrite the rules for what comes next.
As a Cloud Architect at Kyndryl, you will be re-energized with a fresh set of challenges, including working on large enterprise, fast-track cloud projects. You will have the opportunity to be the standard-bearer in a new organization and industry-leading brand, where you can leverage your unstoppable growth potential and start building what can become your legacy.
Cloud Architects are the key link between Kyndryl and our clients. You’re in a technical leadership role, uniting and guiding stakeholders from clients, governance, and project executives to delivery. You’ll be there from the start of a project — understanding what’s needed and figuring out the best technical solution. And you’ll be there at the finish, delivering the right product on time and within budget.
As a Cloud Architect, you’ll draw upon the full breadth of your talent and experience. This is a technical leadership role, hence we want you to bring your vision, knowledge, and leadership to each project. To the client, you’re the subject matter expert – consulting early, gathering inputs, understanding what they need from our solution. You define what Kyndryl can do to meet this solution. You design the best solution for the job. And finally, you’re the tech leader for implementation.
At Kyndryl we support all major cloud platforms, so you’ll get the chance to use everything you know – and then some. Thinking your way around pre-existing limitations will grow your creativity and flexibility. You’ll learn a lot here, and if you want to work toward certifications there are plenty of opportunities. The rewards for all this are many. You’ll get to influence, create, and deliver something from start to finish. You will have the power to delight our clients.
Your future at Kyndryl
This role opens the door to many career paths, both vertical and horizontal, and there may be opportunity to travel. It’s a solid path to become enterprise or chief architect or a distinguished engineer! Whatever you see for yourself, you’ll find the opportunity here.
Who You Are
You’re good at what you do and possess the required experience to prove it. However, equally as important – you have a growth mindset; keen to drive your own personal and professional development. You are customer-focused – someone who prioritizes customer success in their work. And finally, you’re open and borderless – naturally inclusive in how you work with others.
