Freelance IT Architect System Integration – (Remote or BCN), 05.02.2020.

We are looking for an IT Architect expert, focused on the role of Solutions Architect, but closer to system integration than software. The client is in Barcelona, but it can be done remote with punctual visits, to start as soon as possible.

The project started at the beginning of last year but we had to replace the architect. The expected ending is before summer, but the client may have more projects with needs of this profile afterwards. The customer is a well-known international company that has acquired a new company and is migrating and integrating the POS (points of sale) into the ERP of the group.

The candidate will have total autonomy, must have that knowledge of the role of Project Manager, although there is already a PM in the team. He must have had experience as such, so that he can plan, meet deadlines, manage resources, coordinate all the people under his command, etc. He will report directly to the IT Director and must inform him of what has been done, and not asking him for the next steps since all the vision, planning and development will depend on the candidate.

Place: Barcelona or Remote.
Type of Work: Full time.
Start date: ASAP.
Duration: Until before summer.
Language: Spanish and English.
