Job Description for Technical Architect
A technical architect acts as a liaison between the upper management of a company and the designers and developers who work on the company’s information technology (IT) needs. The technical architect must anticipate and identify these IT needs and design a solution, and they must make sure the solution works as efficiently as possible for all parties involved. It also is possible for technical architects to specialize in a specific part of an IT framework, such as security. However, most technical architects are responsible for improving end-user experience or ensuring a company’s internal digital framework works smoothly.
