Optum State Government Solutions (SGS) provides a range of comprehensive solutions as a partner to state government Health and Human Services related agencies throughout the United States and its territories.  

We are looking for a Technical Application Architect.

The individual is responsible for communicating and enforcing overall architecture vision, technical strategies, and trade-offs across their assignments. Assignments may be in both the product development and on specific customer implementations. 

This position is for general capability assignments versus a specific dedicated account and therefore you'll enjoy the flexibility to telecommute* from anywhere within the U.S. as you take on some tough challenges. Since architecture is a leadership position by its nature, travel can be required at times.

    • Reuse existing corporate and business unit product capabilities where they fit

  • Identify and use applicable architecture patterns, structures, and standards,
  • Determine application features needed to meet current and expected requirements, especially those that bring competitive advantage
