Please note: our interview process is designed to comply with CDC recommendations. Your safety is of the utmost importance to us

At Lineage Logistics, our six values help guide how we behave and define what we hold most important: Safe, Trust, Respect, Innovation, Bold, Servant Leadership. We all play a position that is key to the company’s success. Join our Technology team that is growing both domestically and internationally.

Lineage Logistics is currently seeking a Technology Architect to join the team. As our Technology Architect, you would be responsible for the design and delivery of software application architecture components across Lineage’s expanding portfolio of supply chain systems. As a logistics organization, our supply chain technology - especially the differentiating technology we choose to build - provides the foundation upon which we deliver our services and is critical to both our effectiveness and our sustained leadership position in the industry. This hands-on position requires a knowledge of technology that is relatively broad but especially deep. A strong understanding of elements like API design and architecting applications for supportability is essential.

At Lineage, the aim is not to build the largest IT group; instead we are creating a small, highly-skilled team that focuses on having right mix of talents, skills, and the capacity to learn in areas that define our core differentiation. We leverage cloud services, best-of-breed technologies, and external teams to augment our capabilities with sufficient capacity. This means that in addition to being a great technologist and individual contributor, an ideal candidate will need to be able to review and collaborate with others - both internal and external - to ensure that we are collectively able to deliver.

As a company, Lineage builds state-of-the-art systems to make our employees productive, to meet and exceed our customers’ expectations, to assist in our growth, and to create an operating platform that enables Lineage to achieve its vision of transforming the food supply chain. This is a critical role in that journey, and it will require someone who has a true passion for application design, implementation, and operational efficiency.

Responsibilities of the Technology Architect:

  • Determine detailed architectural design for supply chain software and supporting technologies
  • Design and support the implementation of APIs (especially RESTful ones) for use by both internal and external systems
  • Implement detailed monitoring and operational visibility of new and existing applications to improve availability, scalability, and supportability – improving the “Ops” side of “DevOps”
  • Contribute to the creation, maintenance, and access of the organization’s data assets with an emphasis on reporting-related workloads
  • Investigate and resolve technical support escalations involving serious systems issues (e.g. production downtime and severe bugs)
  • Collaborate with others to solve complex problems and resolve technological disagreement with informed, rational, practical solutions
  • Mentor and provide guidance especially to other technical resources
  • Work with both internal and external teams across a variety of geographies

Required Qualifications of the Technology Architect:

  • Bachelor’s Degree in computer science, software engineering, or IT management and/or >6 years of relevant work experience
  • 5+ years of direct software development experience with at least 2 years spent designing and implementing APIs
  • Demonstrable knowledge of API development and application support tools - everything from Postman to New Relic
  • Strong knowledge of software design and implementation tools and technologies
  • Ability to handle multiple assignments/projects simultaneously
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills including the ability to explain technical concepts to business leaders

Preferred Qualifications of the Technology Architect:

  • Having knowledge of supply chain concepts and associated technologies including WMS, TMS, YMS, and related systems is preferred
