We’re running an exclusive recruitment campaign for our pals at Mindcurv to find a Solution Architect who’ll be a key player within their team, by working their magic on projects, so the company can continue to grow.
Mindcurv was founded in Spain and Germany. Two independent companies met and worked on loads of similar projects, and collaborated on many more. Quick as a flash, they decided to join forces, so they could reach more and better clients. They’re helping with the digital transformation agenda through the development of applications, support and operating systems, and today they’ve got over 550 people spread all over the world.
You’ll form part of the technical management team, helping with the processes for defining and implementing solutions. You may also be involved in sales processes, designing and seeking high-level solutions to generate technical proposals for clients.
As a Cloud Architect, you’ll make architectural decisions (forgive us for repeating ourselves), by evaluating simplicity in design and overcoming technical limitations and procedures. You’ll promote engineering best practices in the team, by making testing, seamless integration, and automated deployment their mantra.
At Mindcurv, they work under agile methodologies, whether it’s Scrum or Kanban depending on the project.
In 1 month
During the onboarding, you’ll have a manager and the support team will help you to get set up. By now, you’ll understand how the company is structured and how it works, including its technical and business challenges. You’ll know all your team by now and you’ll have cut your first teeth.
Once you’ve got through the onboarding, you can assess how it went and if you’d improve any of the steps or any of the info shared. As Mindcurv says: “We always like to continuously improve. Anything that helps us and is fed back to us will be welcomed with open arms!”.
Leading technical discovery sessions with the client to develop a comprehensive understanding of the technical requirements and integrations interfaces for new commerce solutions
Developing technical proofs of concept, as necessary, to validate proposed solutions designs, reduce technical risk and minimize level of effort uncertainty
Delegating tasks and provide leadership and guidance to the joint Ops, Development or DevOps teams
Developing and documenting technical infrastructure solution designs and specifications that satisfy the functional and technical requirements for digital commerce implementation projects
Decomposing technical solution specifications into work packages; document prerequisites and dependencies for these; and estimate the level of effort and resource level/skill necessary to implement each work package

From day one, you’ll work hand in hand with the co-founders in Spain: Néstor, Carmen and other workmates that you’ll be working alongside in the tech management of projects. Once you’re up and running in your team, you’ll have direct contact with your Technical Lead.
Everybody in the company gets on well with each other and the culture is deeply rooted in collaboration, information and knowledge sharing. Mindcurv is a company with an open philosophy; nothing but great, friendly vibes. Fancy it?
Mindcurv is a company with offices in lots of countries: Spain, Germany, Holland, and India. To really get what the company’s about, you’ll need to be flexible.

She’s the company’s party organiser extraordinaire, so, if you want to let your hair down, you only need to tell her once what you want to celebrate and you’ll have a cheerleader for your idea.
