The Cloud Architect is a customer service-focused, creative leader, responsible for designing, deploying, and maintaining Share Our Strength’s cloud-based infrastructure. That infrastructure includes data ingestion portals, which are connected to external data sources and a number of Software-As-A-Service (SaaS) platforms; a centralized data lake where data is indexed; and a collection of analytic tools, with the main one being Tableau. Reporting to the Chief Information Officer, this individual collaborates with both internal and external stakeholders to support an organization of approximately 300 total staff. This role demands a strong technical expert with outstanding customer service, communications, and collaborative skills.
DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES
o Free Meal Finder – Share Our Strength operates an SMS chatbot to help families in need find food in their
community. This tool is currently transitioning from a proprietary vendor platform to AWS Lex. The Cloud
Architect may help lead that transition to Lex and work with a variety of technical and business owners to
implement new features for the chat-bot, such as automated data ingestion, user opt-in features, and
advanced aggregate reporting of user behavior.
o Donor Data Warehouse – Share Our Strength uses a large number of tools and platforms to make it as
easy as possible for donors to contribute to our mission. Working with a number of internal stakeholders,
the Cloud Architect may help design and implement a donor data warehouse that consolidates data flows
from across these different donor platforms and enables dynamic reporting.
At Share Our Strength, we value an individual’s diversity of backgrounds, experiences, ideas and perspectives.

We each come to Share Our Strength with a unique background, but together we form a team that yields amazing results.
This shared value of encouraging and embracing diversity in our organization fosters a workplace and culture that is highlighted for its innovation, open expression of ideas, and collaboration. With a strong shared commitment to the organization’s mission, and a unique blend of individual strengths, we are all working toward ensuring that each child in America has food where they Live, Learn, and Play.
