Job Description for Senior Software Architect

The senior software architect is largely responsible for the development of new programs and software for technologically based organizations. This position includes working with a team of individuals to identify the goals of the software, develop a system for implementation, and overseeing the development process. This includes reviewing code that subordinates have written to ensure it is works correctly and researching the most up-to-date techniques in software design. In addition, the senior software architect spends a great deal of time communicating progress on software development to subordinates, clients, project managers, and business analysts; they must be able to discuss implementation in terms and conditions that the individual less familiar with software development can understand.
