You possess a diverse background in areas such as architecture design, distributed systems, infrastructure migration, and deployment strategies. To be successful, one must know how to navigate ambiguity, have extensive experience working with cloud technologies, have technical depth, and enjoy working with customers. 

 

Job responsibilities

  • Be recognized as an expert within the team and will build a reputation with Google and our customers.

  • Participate in early-stage opportunity qualification calls, as well as lead client-facing technical discussions for established projects.
  • Develop and codify best practices for your team that can be replicated across multiple customer engagements.
  • Guide the day-to-day activities of a team, including hiring world class talent, reviewing work and ensuring that knowledge is shared amongst the team.

Staff.am Interview with Hovig Safoian, Founder and Chairman of SADA

"SADA specializes in public cloud computing, particularly Google cloud computing, which includes all the enterprise-level services offered by Google, which by the way are not few. I think the introduction of all these technologies in Armenia will be quite important for Armenian technology companies, as public cloud computing is not so widespread in Armenia, which we are going to change and promote.
We will contribute to the improvement of approaches in the field of education. We will work with large global organizations, we will solve serious problems for those companies, contributing to the modernization of infrastructure, introducing innovations related to cloud technologies, projects. All this will enable Armenian engineers to work with the above-mentioned large global corporations, as well as with the engineering team of SADA's head office, which is the best in its field. And, of course, with Google։ engineers and product teams, taking into account our daily close work with Google."
