  • Build enhancements within an existing software architecture and suggest improvements to the architecture.
  • Assists in defining the appropriate operational planning.

  • Act as an escalation point for complex or critical issues that have not yet been documented as Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs).
  • Drive quality accountability within the organization with well-defined processes, metrics, and goals for process quality. This includes leading effective postmortems and ensuring actions are followed-up.
