Who We Are
At Kyndryl, 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.
Cloud Architects are the key link between Kyndryl and our customers. You’re in a technical leadership role, uniting and guiding our customers, partners, suppliers, and development & operations teams. 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, so we want you to bring your vision, knowledge, and leadership to each project. To the customer, you’re the subject matter expert – consulting early (pre-sales and/or post-sales), gathering inputs, and 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. You’ll also become an expert at knowing when and how to call on other SMEs outside your wheelhouse. 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 customers.
Your Future at Kyndryl
This role opens the door to many career paths, both vertical and horizontal, and there may be opportunities to travel. It’s a great chance for Database Administrators or other techs to break into the cloud. It’s also a solid path to becoming an 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.
