FAR FROM ORDINARY

Senior Software Architect

Outlier uses creativity and capital to buy, start and grow exceptional businesses. We are one of the largest private companies in the US but likely different than you’ve seen before. We buy and grow businesses that are leaders in their niches. We also start our own businesses when we see opportunities where we can’t take advantage of through acquisition. Over 12,000 people work under our brands every day, driving $1B in revenue. Yet despite our scale, we remain flat and nimble with hands-on leadership, operations and a focus on measurable results. Our brands span multiple industries including healthcare, real estate, entertainment, consumer durables and aerospace, with a specialty in building franchise organizations. 

We offer significant growth opportunities across our network of businesses, promoting from within whenever possible. We don’t pay attention to formalities or backgrounds – if you can get the job done, we want you here. 

The Senior Software Architect will be responsible for evaluating, identifying, programming, and overseeing various technology solutions for our Outlier businesses. The Senior Software Architect will be working with one or more of our Groups including real estate, healthcare and/or entertainment. Each of these businesses is powered by a powerful technology suite, hosted within Amazon Web Services, that is used by end consumers/customers (booking, billing, CRM, multichannel communications and more), stores/clinics/brokerages (business/store operations) and employees (website management, inventory, billing, reporting and more). Our platforms run over the internet, are accessed by thousands of users for critical real-time operations and operate on databases ranging up to millions of records in size. Additionally, the Senior Software Architect will be charged with developing new products for internal and external clients.
