    Growth requires a strong foundation, and at Buchanan & Edwards, our people are our strength. They are the foundation for building the next generation of innovative IT solutions, revolutionizing the industry, and solving the nation’s most critical challenges.

    Come grow with us.


    We are offering you the opportunity to stretch your technical skills and leverage your self-motivation in exciting ways that have an impact to our clients and, by extension, a direct impact to the U.S. Government's missions. BE is looking for a Senior Solutions Architect that will work in our Chief Technology Officer's organization where you will be responsible for engineering solutions, prototyping research, service delivery, business development, product evaluation, and building best practices in software development, agile methodologies, and DevOps processes. We are also working with advanced technologies in big data, stream processing, natural language understanding, and machine learning.


    The CTO organization serves the rest of the company by promoting the latest technologies and new, but proven, ways of delivering systems to our customers that work better, are more efficient, and streamline the overall development process for our engineering staff. No two weeks will be the same as we are constantly chasing new business opportunities and staying aware, and ahead, of the latest trends and technologies. This position requires thought leadership, a drive to succeed, and the desire to take on new and varied challenges. Speaking with conviction and writing well are strong requirements in addition to your already excellent technical acumen.


    Candidates must demonstrate a successful track record of developing and delivering software applications and systems as well as being able to present them orally and in writing through presentations and briefs and proposals. Solid development skills and a strong technical background are required. Experience in a range of software technologies is expected, and the candidate must be prepared to provide technical expertise and leadership in one or more of the following areas: software engineering, development frameworks, big data, data science, and open source platforms. Overall, the mission is to always expand the company's core capabilities and strategic placement in the industry.


    This is a challenging, but rewarding, position as it combines technology skills with business development and thought leadership. You will work with a small, but motivated, team of talented engineers with advanced degrees and long industry track records.




    • Develop and deliver, orally and in writing, effective demos, proof-of-concepts, and re-usable solutions
    • Draft technical proposals and provide technical support to business development efforts
    • Create solution briefs, whitepapers, videos, technical blogs, and deliver brown bags and other conferences that increase BE’s visibility and the visibility of our solutions best practices
    • Deliver internal projects which automate processes, enhance delivery, and/or otherwise reduce cost, improve quality, and increase value
    • Deliver customer-facing service delivery projects to realize their strategic and tactical value for both our customers and BE


    • BS or MS degree in engineering, computer science, or a related information technology field from an accredited university or college
    • 7+ years’ experience with consulting, systems development, or similar IT customer services delivery experience
    • 4+ years’ experience with Big Data, analytics, data science, IoT, or other experience in an emerging technology field
