As a result of our significant growth, we are seeking an experienced Application Architect to work at our head office in Oakville, ON. You will be part of a highly skilled and growing Engineering team delivering a high-quality SaaS product in a fast-paced environment.   The job:   As we modernize our platform and our architecture, move to the cloud, and scale, you will play a key role in helping Invisor and its clients thrive by identifying the critical systems and designs that need to change and the critical features that need to be built in order to make our platform stronger, more flexible, more scalable, and easier to work on.   You will:

  • own the overall system-level design of our platform
  • work with product and technical stakeholders to identify key non-functional requirements and lead the high-level design required for us to meet them
