🐯 Software Architect

Tigerpaw Software Bellevue, NE

Job Description

Tigerpaw is on the hunt for a Software Architect to join our overly caffeinated team of quirky, fun and friendly Tigers. 

Maybe you’re the Tiger we’re looking for?

As our Software Architect, you will own the overall architecture and design for our industry leading ERP product. This includes both our legacy product as well as our new cloud product. If you start now, you will get to own the technical design of the cloud product from day one. How often do you get the chance to design an enterprise software product from the ground up?

At Tigerpaw, we embrace the weird, the odd, the unusual, and the quirky. So much so that we even added “Quirky, Fun and Friendly” as one of our core values. (It’s just above the unofficial core values of “Bacon”* and “Shenanigans.”)

This is a job and a company where you are encouraged to let your geek flag fly. We welcome your energy, enthusiasm, and the things you are passionate about.

In addition to owning the technical design of our software, you also will have the chance to be a member of a learning-focused company that values the soft skills that make coming to work awesome: communication, listening, being supportive of your team members, empathy, critical thinking, problem solving, and how to high-five a co-worker while holding a fresh slice of pizza.

We value passion, creativity, ownership and accountability, team collaboration, bad puns, and building up others to make our team better through teamwork and camaraderie.

If the idea of working with a great team gets your blood flowing, in an environment that embraces modern ideas on leadership, company culture, and team building; if you put people first; and if you’re not scared away by our quirky culture — then maybe you’re the Tiger we’re looking for. (There will be a Roar test.)

Summary and responsibilities

Tigerpaw is looking for a Software Architect to act as our newest Lego Master team member. This person will be responsible for:

  • Overall technical design of our ERP product
  • Creating the architecture for our new cloud ERP offering
  • Providing technical guidance and coaching to developers
  • Assisting developers with the creation of detailed software design specifications
  • Overseeing progress of development team to ensure consistency with initial design
  • Owning and maintaining the architectural documentation including diagrams and designs
  • Paying attention to system integrations to ensure sustainability and speed to deliver
  • Staying current with developments in the cloud space and overall software development space to ensure Tigerpaw responds appropriately to those changes

You may also be called upon to referee inter-departmental trivia contests and assist in the selection of beer and barbecue for team outings.


Qualifications and core competencies

Think you’d be a good fit to join our Streak of Tigers? Here’s what we’re looking for:

  • Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Information Technology or relevant field
  • Minimum 10 years of software development experience
  • Minimum 5 years of software architecture experience
  • Minimum 4 years of AWS experience.
  • Comprehensive knowledge of competing cloud platforms (Azure, AWS, Google)
  • Comprehensive knowledge of software design patterns including SOA, microservices architecture and data modeling
  • Expert knowledge of .NET Core
  • Expert knowledge of Web Development including experience with React
  • Thorough knowledge of securing cloud applications
  • Experience developing and implementing coding standards
  • Ability to thrive as an independent thinker who can operate in ambiguity
  • Ability to take initiative and strictly adhere to deadlines
  • Ability to think strategically but also produce tangible software designs and technical specifications
  • Proficiency with Microsoft Office Suite applications including Excel, Word, Outlook and PowerPoint
  • Proficiency with Microsoft Visio or a similar diagraming software
  • Experience with SaaS is a plus


Bonus! You identify with most or all of the following:

  • You have a lifelong love of learning and you’re not afraid to try new things.
  • You can laugh at your mistakes and learn from them.
  • You can laugh at your team’s mistakes (with them; don’t be a jerk), and positively encourage them to continue to DO THE THING!
  • You understand what it means to be part of a no-ego team and you like the idea of getting to work with other fun, geeky, driven and productive professionals, multiple-disciplined thought leaders, and super nerds.
  • You appreciate a good high-five from a teammate over a great idea or a completed project.
  • You like the idea of trading in your blouses and blazers for wearing comic book, video game, or band shirts to work. (And you dig the idea of having a closet full of Tiger-themed work shirts — and yes, we have managed to create some that have a tiger wranglin’ a dragon on them.)
  • You can take constructive criticism and feedback professionally and use it to help the team.
  • You want to learn how to do things better and you enjoy when a teammate shows you a new technique, strategy, shortcut, or random meme.
  • You like Star Trek or Star Wars. There is no right answer, but you should probably have an opinion on the matter.
  • You are excited to help your team and coworkers, but you are also capable of handling your individual projects — and you are always focused on driving projects to completion and success.
  • You think silos are incompatible in a modern workplace environment (read: they’re stupid) and you welcome the opportunity to work in a no-silo environment where you are encouraged to work and play across department lines, roles, and titles.
  • You have an upbeat attitude and you genuinely want to enjoy working with your team.
  • The opportunity to be part of a dedicated team of passionate high-performers gets you excited. And the idea of being part of a modern workplace culture of empowered team members gets you pumped in a big way.
  • You want to have fun, but also get $h!t done.


This position offers a competitive compensation package in a relaxed, quirky, fun and friendly company culture. You will be expected to dive in quickly, and you will have the backing and support of our entire team. (We may throw you into the deep-end of the pool, but we’ll give you metaphorical arm-floaty things.)

What are you waiting for? Let’s hear your Tiger roar! (That means apply if you think this sounds like a cool gig — and we promise, it is.)


This exciting full-time position will report to our Director of Development and Operations IT.

All offers of employment at Tigerpaw are contingent upon clear results of a thorough background check.

CONTACT: Dan DeLuca,

[Resume, cover letter, and compensation requirements must be included in your response in order to be considered for this role]


*Love of bacon is not a requirement for this position. We have several vegetarians and vegans on our team who we fully embrace as our tigery brethren and sistren.
