Solution Architect



Prague, Czechia
Posted on Wednesday, November 9, 2022

We use state-of-art AI plus intuitive UI to eliminate useless paperwork and make the whole world go faster. Each company wants to customize and integrate Rossum in their workflow, which means seamless product adoption has a significant impact on the value we provide as a whole.

In practice, this often means the development of custom services that extend the product capabilities beyond the out-of-the-box features and create integrations to many different systems that our customers use.

As a Solution Architect, your job is to understand customers' needs and tailor a customized solution in a form of a descriptive and actionable backlog for the developers.

About you

We are all geeks and hackers who like to engineer beautiful systems, all the way to Rossum’s CEO. You will fit right in if:

  • This role is ideal for ex-programmers who want to grow in solving high-level design problems, rather than specific low-level engineering tasks.
  • You love solving puzzles.
  • You can contextualize your technical decisions by their business impact.
  • You know how to communicate your designs and ideas clearly and descriptively, so developers can follow through on them.
  • You know just what questions to ask the customers to reveal the pain points and their true source.
  • You understand the general principles of good security practices and you can identify potential risks to both the solution and the overall delivery process
  • You know your stakeholders, what is important to them, and how to communicate with them.
  • You are UX-sensitive. When designing solutions you always consider how the end-user will be affected by your decisions.
  • You are familiar with how the end-to-end development process works. You already participated in a dev process in some capacity. Experience with JIRA is a plus.
  • You are honest and bullshit-free. You base your opinions on data, but don’t cling to it in the face of good arguments.

Our Tech Stack

Rossum is a very tech-savvy product, therefore a familiarity or even experience with the following stack is a huge plus.

  • Most of our services are written in Flask or Django.
  • We have a few projects in Javascript too.
  • We use PostgreSQL as our database of choice.

About Us

Rossum (the name comes from Czech writer Karel Čapek’s play “Rossum’s Universal Robots”) is capable of extracting data (from documents) six times faster than the human rate. Last year alone it managed to save companies across a number of sectors over one billion keystrokes, the equivalent of 150 years of human labor. Today, the company automates document communication for customers on five continents and a client roster that includes Siemens, Bosch, Cushman & Wakefield, Veolia, and, here in the Czech Republic, Alza, Kofola, and Mattoni.

After tripling our revenue in 2020 and securing Eastern Europe’s largest-ever Series A funding of $100M in 2021 , we plan to further expand our market share and invest heavily across our Go-to-market teams & our research and development backbone.

Our product is number #1 in its category.
