VacanciesPega Certified

Your job in a nutshell

What will you do?
As a Pega/Appian senior architect you will design and build model driven software based on Pega and Appian Technology. On behalf of SmartRules you will deliver a custom made solution to your client. Who that is? Think nationally known financial service providers and insurance companies, but also the government, ministries for example.

On location you will get a better picture of the client’s wishes, demands and needs and start designing, developing and testing innovative solutions in a creative way. You advise your client and make sure that the solutions meet the technical and functional specifications.

Whoever your client may be, with your communicative skills you know exactly how to figure out who they are and what they need. And how to keep them captivated throughout the project. This way you work together towards the desired result: a more efficient, flexible and pleasant way of working for your client for years to come. To get to that result, is your most important drive. It’s not without good reason, our customer satisfaction has been this high for years! And you will see to it that it remains that way.
