About the Position

How do we take tens of millions of content creators, connect them with hundreds of millions of viewers, on a platform that is second to none? It starts with welcoming everyone but choosing only the best. It's the willingness to experiment and be curious. These are just a few of the driving principles behind the Twitch IT organization.

Twitch is searching for a Business & Solutions Architect with an action-oriented mindset and a focus on exceeding expectations, who operates with vision and integrity. As a Business & Solutions Architect, you will be responsible for proactively leading Enterprise Architecture activities that create deliverables that guide business models and technical solutions that achieve targeted business outcomes. With a business architecture focus, you will be responsible for facilitating the construction of IT business capabilities, functions & processes and organizational design, working collaboratively with business strategists, process owners and subject matter experts. You will focus on business strategy and targeted business outcomes — clarifying strategic intentions; identifying outcomes and exploring implications, impacts and risks. With a solution architecture focus, you will leverage and use technology to enable the organization's future-state business capabilities that, in turn, drive the organization's targeted outcomes. Combined together, you are a foundational contributor to the overall delivery of capability and value of Twitch IT, and its enterprise architectural strategy.

If you are a candidate that enjoys engaging stakeholders to understand and enhance their business processes, has the ability to translate complex requirements into scalable, technical architectures and believe in the ability to develop skills and talents of other engineers, then you may be the ideal person for this position.


  • Understand business drivers and business capabilities (future and current state), and determine corresponding enterprise system designs and change requirements to drive the organization's targeted business outcomes.
  • Engage key business stakeholders to facilitate both strategy and innovation planning and to develop an IT investment roadmap.
  • Define the principles, guidelines, standards and solution patterns to ensure solution decisions are aligned with the enterprise's future-state architecture vision.
  • Seek ways to apply new technology, and reuse existing technology to enhance business processes and how digital business initiatives potentially impact the enterprise's organizational impact (for example, on skills, processes, structures or culture) and financial metrics.
  • Analyze the business-IT environment (run, grow and transform the business) to detect critical deficiencies, and recommend solutions for improvement (systems of record, differentiation, and innovation).
  • Provide strategic consultation to customers in defining or designing business capabilities, processes, functions, and organizational structures, as well as in researching, identifying and enabling technologies based on business and end-user requirements.
  • Understand technology trends and the practical application of existing, new, and emerging technologies to enable new and evolving business and operating models.
  • Participate in enterprise architecture development, including business architecture, information architecture, application portfolio, and technical architecture.
  • Design and lead the implementation of a solutions architecture across a group of specific business applications or technologies based on enterprise business strategy, business capabilities and business requirements.


  • Bachelor’s degree in business, information systems or related discipline
  • Minimum of five years of experience in at least two IT solution development disciplines, including technical architecture, network management, application development, middleware, database management or operations.
  • Minimum of five years of experience in enterprise, application and information architecture methodologies, and design. Experience with key areas of enterprise architecture, including application and integration development best practices, functional and technical solution architecture & design.
  • Management experience in one or more of the following areas: strategic planning, leadership, business relationship management and business process management.
  • Experience designing and developing business processes, and integrated workflows that enable the business to increase the velocity and accuracy of data-driven decisions.
  • A good understanding of strategic and new and emerging technology trends, and the practical application of existing, new and emerging technologies to new and evolving business and operating models.
  • A proven track record of innovative thinking balanced with a strong customer and quality focus.
