Partner with the best

Baker Hughes is looking for a senior leader to join BHC3 Global Services team to oversee architecture strategy, platform integration and solution architecture for a portfolio of enterprise AI applications for the Oil & Gas industry.

As a Sr. Director Solution Architecture Services, you will be responsible for:

Coaching, developing, and partnering with technically skilled, customer facing-solution architects for the BHC3 global services team. You will enable a highly effective team by coaching them on best practices and provide technical guidance on how to create and present architectures of varying size and complexity for our specialized services to oil and gas customers. You will drive revenue growth across the upstream and downstream O&G customer base.

Leading a team of solution architects to configure and deploy the BHC3 platform and BHC3 product suite applications using public, private, or hybrid cloud architecture for our customers. You will be required to design and implement advanced application integration solutions, deploy existing BHC3 product suite applications, and build new cutting-edge tools on the BHC3 platform. BHC3 product suite is entirely data-driven, so a great candidate will have a passion for acquiring, analyzing, and transforming data to generate insight. You will be interacting with large enterprises with complex system landscapes, so breadth of experience is paramount. This role is very hands-on and requires a perfect combination of "big picture", solution-oriented mindset and solid implementation skills.

Being technically capable and credible as well as effective in shaping the customer and solutions-focused skills of your team. Thought leadership in terms of looking beyond the technology and considering the value technology creates for our customers, and helping to change how technology is viewed are important aspects of this role. You will help team members ramp-up on the BHC3 platform. You will also need to be adept at interacting, communicating and partnering with other teams within BHC3 such as product development, sales, marketing, and other professional services teams, as well as representing your team to executive management .

Roles and Responsibilities

  • Ensure success in helping customers accelerate their adoption of our specialized services.
  • Hire, on-board, train, and develop new Solution Architects from internal and external sources.
  • Capture and share best-practice knowledge amongst the BHC3 solutions architect community.
  • Act as a conduit and liaison between customers, service engineering teams and support
  • Step into a Solutions Architect role when required to support our customer base.
  • Work with customers to architect a full-stack solution using BHC3 software that fully integrates with customer's existing cloud infrastructure from data flow, security, DevOps and other standpoints.
  • Engage directly with customers to configure and implement a full-stack solution, including integrations, according to functional requirements.
  • Provide recommendations and best practices to optimize customers' cloud presence, performance, security and cost in light of the BHC3 platform.
  • Compare and contrast building applications with the BHC3 platform versus building them with cloud primitives.
  • Assess technical risks and come up with mitigation strategies.
  • Develop new specs, documentation, participate in the development of technical procedures and user support guides.


Fuel your passion

To be successful in this role you will:
  • Have 10+ years hands-on experience in design/implementation/consulting experience of distributed applications.
  • Have 5+ years of experience in infrastructure architecture, compute, storage and networking
  • Have 5+ years management of technical, customer facing resources.
